Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable and customised aligners (mouthpieces) to guide your teeth into place gradually.
The aligners must be worn at least 22 hours each day and should be removed only while eating or performing your oral hygiene routine.
At United Smiles, we offer the latest in orthodontic treatment options, and this includes Invisalign. To find out if you are a good candidate for Invisalign, contact us at United Smiles today.
Best Candidates for Invisalign
If you thought you might need metal braces, then you are probably a good candidate for the Invisalign system as well. It’s a great treatment option for many orthodontic patients.
Here are a few types of patients who may qualify to undergo the Invisalign treatment:
Teens – Invisalign is ideal for teenagers with orthodontic issues. Invisalign is the way to go for teens who might be a little self-conscious wearing braces.
Spacing issues – Invisalign can adjust the improper spacing between teeth, especially crowding. However, for patients with small teeth and big arches, they may be better candidates for cosmetic dentistry such as veneers.
Patients who struggle with their oral hygiene – Cleaning your teeth at home can be a bit of a nuisance with traditional braces. Because Invisalign is removable, you can rinse, brush and floss your teeth normally.
Good overall oral health – If you have healthy teeth and gums and are not a smoker, then Invisalign may be an option.
Orthodontic Issues Treated By Invisalign
Invisalign is very effective at treating these issues:
- Open bite
- Gapped teeth
- Crowded teeth
If Invisalign is ideal for you, your dentist at United Smile will create a three-dimensional model of your mouth using X-rays, digital images and teeth impressions. The model will be used to create a personalised plan to move your teeth into proper position.
The Invisalign Company will use the model and manufacture a series of clear aligners customised for you. Your dentist will provide a new set of aligners every two weeks.
