Are you unhappy with your smile or are your teeth crooked? Maybe you have a gap or your bite is off? If so, there is a fabulous solution called Invisalign.
You may think that you need to get traditional wire braces to straighten your teeth, but like the name suggests, Invisalign is nearly invisible. Most people won’t even be able to tell that you are wearing them!
You’ll need to book a consultation with your dentist to determine if Invisalign will be able to fix your personal alignment issues, as some more complicated issues may need wire braces. That said, your dentist will be able to give you an answer as soon as they look at your teeth.
How Often Would I Need to Wear the Aligners?
You would have to wear the aligners for 22 hours a day. They are only supposed to be taken out while cleaning your teeth and eating. You would also want to make water your beverage of choice, as sugary drinks for example, could get trapped in the aligners (and you don’t want your teeth taking a bath in sugar, as that could lead to decay).
Choosing Invisalign means being dedicated to the process. If you don’t wear your aligners, any progress you made will retract and your teeth will not shift in the right direction. The responsibility rests on your shoulders. And if you don’t follow the instructions, you’ll just be losing out on your investment. So the one thing you need to be sure of before getting Invisalign is that you will not start cutting corners on your treatment.
Sticking to your aligner schedule = RESULTS! Not sticking to your aligner schedule = WASTING YOUR MONEY.
How Long Do Would I Have to Wear the Aligners?
The amount of months or years would depend on the complexity of your issue. This is something that your dentist will be able to tell you at your consultation.
