Before getting Invisalign it’s important to understand what it can do for you.
Chances are good that while doing research on the different orthodontic treatment options out there that you came across Invisalign. If you’re interested in undergoing Invisalign treatment, our Fairfield, CT, dentist, Dr. Joseph Worthington, provides this popular orthodontic treatment to his older teen and adult patients.
Here are some of the top reasons people choose to undergo Invisalign treatment:
Invisalign uses completely clear aligners
Instead of having to sport a visible set of braces over the front of your teeth, this alternative orthodontic system provides completely clear trays that fit over your upper and lower teeth to shift them into place. Invisalign is a 100 percent clear way to get a straighter smile.
Aligners are comfortable
Each aligner is customized to your treatment plan and the smile goals that you have. Aligners will fit snug at first, which allows them to put just enough pressure on teeth to gradually move them around. Our Fairfield, CT, Invisalign dentist will map out each individual tooth movement during your treatment-planning phase. This data will then be used to create aligners that move teeth exactly as our dental team planned. This means that you will have aligners that fit perfectly and are smooth at the edges to prevent irritation.
You can remove your aligners
A lot of our older patients are a bit wary about getting braces because they worry that their normal routine will have to change (and we are certainly creatures of habit, after all), but you’ll be pleased to read that Invisalign fits into your routine; very little about your day-to-day habits need to be altered to accommodate your braces. While you will need to wear your aligners for about 22 hours per day, aligners can be removed prior to eating and caring for your smile, so you don’t have to change your diet or your oral care routine.
