Invisalign Wagga is a very popular method of teeth straightening thanks to the aligners that are almost invisible in your mouth. Invisalign can help address mild or moderate misalignment issues of the teeth and achieve a beautiful straight smile which is aesthetically pleasing and cleaner and healthier than before. To find out whether or not you are eligible for the treatment and to learn more about how Invisalign can transform your smile, you need to book an appointment with your dentist.
Your dentist will carry out a comprehensive dental examination to make sure that your teeth and gums are strong and healthy. They will need to confirm that you are free of tooth decay and gum disease. If you are suffering from tooth decay then this will need to be addressed before you can undergo teeth straightening with Invisalign. By treating any decay before undergoing orthodontic treatment you can prevent further damage in the future. If you are affected by cavities or tooth decay then your teeth may not be able to withstand the pressure that is required to move them into a neater formation and this can lead to cracks or fractures later on. If you are suffering from gum disease, it is also important that this is addressed first. Your dentist may offer you fillings or other forms of dental restoration to address these issues and then you are ready to straighten your teeth.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign takes between 6 and 12 months to correct the misalignment issues of your teeth. For those with more complex orthodontic needs it can take longer. During this time you will be given a series of clear plastic aligners which will push your teeth to create the end result. This is a gradual process. Each aligner has to be worn for approximately 2 weeks at a time. During this time your teeth will move by approximately 0.25 or 0.3 mm. You need to make sure that you wear the aligners for around 22 hours of the day otherwise you will not achieve the results that you are looking for. With Invisalign you can correct the appearance of your teeth at your discretion and the aligners are comfortable and convenient too. They can be taken out of your mouth as required, just be careful not to damage the aligners as they need to last you for two weeks. By taking a few seconds extra when taking them out or replacing them in your mouth you can make sure that they are free from scratches or damage.
When in the mouth they are almost invisible and when it is time to eat or brush your teeth then you can take them out. This means that they do not affect your choice of food or drink and they allow you to brush your teeth as you would normally without braces. Speak to your dentist and find out more about Invisalign in Wagga and how it can not only improve the alignment of your teeth, but also help promote better dental health for the rest of your life.
