Modern and popular teeth straightening
Invisalign is a modern method of straightening teeth which has been used by thousands of celebrities across the world to improve their smile, without anyone knowing that they are undergoing orthodontic treatment. Since 1999 it has corrected over 14 million smiles and is popular amongst patients of all ages. Young people with moderate orthodontic needs are choosing Invisalign over traditional metal braces, as are adults who are reluctant to wear metal braces, but want to improve the appearance of their smile.
More people than ever before have undergone teeth straightening because of Invisalign. This is because Invisalign uses clear thermoplastic aligners to straighten your teeth. These are almost invisible in your mouth. They are the ideal solution for those who want to improve their smiles, but do not want to draw unwanted attention to their mouth. The aligners are comfortable to wear and they are very convenient. You can take them out of your mouth and put them back in as necessary. This means there are no restrictions when using Invisalign. You can eat and drink as you wish and you can brush and floss your teeth as you would normally.
The idea of Invisalign is also significantly less daunting than the thought of traditional orthodontic braces that are fixed onto the surface of your teeth. However, although it is a lot more convenient because the aligners can be taken out of your mouth, it requires a lot of self-discipline. You need to wear the aligners for approximately 22 hours of the day and they need to be worn for 10 to 14 days until you move on to the next aligner in the series. If you do not wear the aligners according to the instructions then this will affect the final results. You may need more aligners and the treatment time will be longer. By adhering to the instructions you should be able to achieve a neatly aligned smile within 6 to 12 months. Invisalign can boost your self-confidence by transforming the appearance of your teeth, helping you to smile happily and confidently all day long.
