If you are suffering from crooked teeth, then Invisalign could help you straighten them and regain your self-confidence. It has become a popular choice amongst people, and they are suitable for most of the crooked teeth problems that are out there.
Please note that if you do have a more complex condition then you may need to use another appliance beforehand, to prepare your teeth to be straightened and moved into their new positions.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a completely clear brace that you fit easily over your teeth, as you would a retainer. However, Invisalign works to effectively straighten your teeth by moving them into the new desired position. The appliance should be worn for around twenty-two hours per day otherwise there is a chance that the treatment will not be as efficient. It is suggested that you remove the appliance to eat and brush your teeth, but you should always make sure to wear it at other times.
You will be given a series of custom-made aligners to wear over a period of time. Every two or so weeks you will change your aligners to the next set, which have an ever-so-slightly different position for your teeth to move into. This is what gradually changes the position and shape of your teeth.
Eventually you will come to your last set of aligners and your teeth will be in their reformed positions, ready for you to show off to all. However, to make sure that your teeth do not move back into their old positions you may need to wear a retainer for a long time after your treatment has ended. This is most likely to be constant wear for the first six months after treatment – to just at night when you are sleeping later on. Sometimes you will be required to wear a retainer for the rest of your life, sometimes you will only need it for a couple of years. Your dentist will be able to advise you of how long you will need to wear your retainer for, when you go for your consultation.
Cost of Invisalign
Thecost of Invisalign can vary depending on how severe your case is. If you need to move your teeth quite a bit then the treatment becomes lengthier and more complex, which increases the price. The more you need to move your teeth, the more custom-made aligners you will need, and it costs money to make these aligners. The longer your treatment is, the more visits you will require to the practice, and this will affect the overall price too.
It is a good idea to speak to your dental professional if you are thinking about getting Invisalign, as they will be able to fully explain how the treatment may help you. They will also be able to inform you of costs and if they offer a pay monthly scheme.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
