Thinking about Invisalign? Here's What You Need to Consider
You've hidden your smile for the last time! You have finally decided to straighten your crooked teeth and smile with confidence again. Invisalign in Irvine, CA may be the solution you're looking for, and here is what you should know.
What Invisalign Can Do
Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that are virtually invisible to move your teeth gradually so this treatment can align your teeth discreetly. It can also produce fast results, as most Invisalign cases can be completed in 12 to 18 months.
Invisalign can straighten your teeth without any changes to your home care routine, or restrictions on your diet like braces require. This is because your aligners can easily be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. Aligners are also comfortable to wear, easy to adapt to, and you won't have to worry about the canker sores or discomfort that braces often cause.
What Invisalign Can't Do
Invisalign can't correct complex bite issues. It also doesn't work effectively without complete compliance from the patient. You will need to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours per day and be diligent about changing them every two weeks.
Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?
Your dentist can determine if Invisalign is right for your needs during a consultation and with some x-rays. If Invisalign is right for you, your dentist can even show you what your aligned smile will look like when treatment is completed.
If Invisalign is not the right treatment for your needs, your dentist can discuss other options that will help you achieve your goals.
