If you live in Sarasota, Florida, and you’re struggling with a smile that’s less than perfect, one option to consider for straightening crooked teeth is Invisalign clear teeth aligners. While some people have naturally straight teeth, most of us could benefit from braces to achieve a gorgeous smile.
The good news is that you no longer have to rely on clunky and uncomfortable metal braces if you want to avoid that. With Invisalign clear teeth aligners, you can have the smile you always dreamed of without the hassle of metal braces. If you have crooked teeth or malocclusion, there has never been a better time than now to explore your options.
Simply put, malocclusion means that your teeth are misaligned or crooked. Crooked teeth affect your smile and confidence, but there are also concerning issues that can occur if you suffer from dental malocclusions.
Fortunately, orthodontia can help you be less at risk for any of these issues.
You have probably seen the mouthguards that athletes wear. These silicone mouthguards protect the teeth from damage when people play contact sports. Invisalign looks similar to these mouthguards, but Invisalign is much more discreet and thinner.
Like metal braces, Invisalign clear aligners use gentle but consistent force for moving your teeth to straighter positions. You will sometimes see Invisalign clear aligners referred to as clear braces or clear teeth aligners. With Invisalign clear aligners, no brackets or wires are used in the teeth straightening process.
Before receiving Invisalign clear aligners, your dentist will determine whether or not you’re a good fit for this type of teeth straightening. Once it’s determined that Invisalign is a good option for you, the dentist will take detailed images of your existing teeth as they also conduct a thorough examination.
The images are then sent to a laboratory where lab technicians construct your clear aligners. These lab technicians will create a detailed map of your teeth and expand the map to show the entire process of straightening your teeth. Before you even receive your aligners, you’ll be able to see how beautiful your teeth will look when the process is done.
You will wear your clear aligners daily, but you can remove them to brush your teeth and eat. You’ll change your aligner every two weeks to the next in the series.Within six to 18 months, you’ll have your gorgeous new straight smile.
