Braces of today have evolved much since traditional wire braces were first implemented. And custom Invisalign is one of the best examples of how far those orthodontic corrections have come. This method of tooth alignment is a discrete way to make corrections, from straightening misaligned teeth, to correcting under or overbites. Invisalign is a process that is unique to you.
With Invisalign, you get a specialized straightening plan that is fit only for you. Clear, custom-made aligners are molded and created to fit and correct your smile in particular. Invisalign is designed based on how your issue can best be fixed. As your teeth begin to correct, bit by bit, aligners are changed out. Over time, your teeth become fully straight and healthy. Patients go through a multitude of different corrective aligners over a varying amount of time, depending on the severity of the Invisalign case.
Since Invisalign aligners can be taken out briefly to do things like eat, brush, change to advanced aligners every two weeks, many people tend to forget to put aligners back in. Aligners should be worn at for least 20 hours or more each day in order to be fully effective. When not worn as in-structed, you may end up with ineffective results, or a prolonged Invisalign process altogether.
After wearing all of the custom aligners in your designed plan as recommended, you will be ready to reveal your best smile yet. Not only that, a straight smile is also a healthier smile. With crooked teeth, for example, things like plaque and tartar more easily build up in deep spaces and crevices. With these gaps or spaces. After the Invisalign process, you will be full of properly aligned, healthy and happy smiles.
