Worried about getting braces? Does having a metal cage on your teeth scare you? We have a solution: Invisalign. Find out why Mississauga dentists recommend it.
Many of us avoid having the perfect smile because we have to wear corrective braces to get them. These metal contraptions have been the reason for the loss of confidence among many patients say dentists located in Mississauga. But avoiding these braces could result in lessened functionality and other problems as well.
Invisalign braces bring a new twist to the “braces conundrum”. Invisible aligners are slowly becoming more and more popular. The concept of Invisalign is the use of a set of aligners over a period of time which are adjusted to the shape of the teeth periodically for better and quicker results. The biggest benefit of Invisalign according to dentists is that the users are more confident and are happy to keep the aligners on.
What should you expect from Invisalign treatments?
Invisalign treatment involves the following steps:
- Getting a structural and digital image of your teeth
- Creating a chart of how your teeth will change over time.
- Making custom aligner sets
- Fixing them with easily removable fasteners
- Aligned, beautiful and perfect teeth.
At the Woodlands Dental Centre, Mississauga, dentists begin the Invisalign treatment with the process of getting a clear and detailed idea of what your teeth look like. These dentists use photography and moulds to have a perfect base to start your Invisalign treatments.
After the imaging is done, they use the Invisalign software to map and predict how your teeth will change over time with the use of aligners. This helps them make you a full set of aligners for an estimated duration. Some Mississauga dental patients have had to use these for over a year and some for more. It really depends on how your teeth adjust and your usage.
After the predictions, the aligners are prepared and are ready to be used. These are given to the patient in a complete set. The patient is required to change the aligners at specific time intervals which is usually two weeks.
Invisaligners are usually fastened to keep them in place and ensure that your teeth are being aligned without any loose bolts. They are easy to open since aligners have to be removed while brushing and eating. This helps the user keep them clean and invisible and have a great and confident smile always.
The proper use of aligners combined with regular visits and constant care can prove beneficial to you. A beautiful, perfect and fully functional smile waits at the end of this treatment.
