Your smile plays a big role in the impressions you leave. When your teeth are misaligned, it not only affects the quality of your smile, but it can also have a serious impact on your confidence. In addition to the aesthetic effects, misaligned teeth can also affect your oral health. With misaligned teeth, you are at greater risk for cavities, gum disease, bruxism, TMJ disorder, tooth damage, and more. In the past, the only way to correct your teeth was with metal braces. At Trail Ridge Dental, we are proud to offer a modern alternative to traditional orthodontics and braces with Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a treatment for correcting misaligned teeth that provides you with an aesthetic alternative to metal braces. This treatment uses clear thermoplastic aligners. The aligners are created specifically for you from digital impressions of your mouth. They are worn over the teeth, and essentially disappear when they are set in place. While they are removable, they should be worn for at least 20 to 22 hours every day. The only times they should be removed is to eat and to brush your teeth.
How does Invisalign work?
Treatment with Invisalign uses a series of aligners to achieve results. These aligners are designed and created using specialized software. Each set of aligners is meant to be worn for only two weeks at a time. The next set you move on to is slightly different from the previous one, which enables your teeth to be moved gradually.
Invisalign vs. braces comparision
Traditional braces have been in use for decades to correct misaligned teeth and jaws, and are still a popular treatment today. However, Invisalign provides you with an easier opportunity to correct teeth.
Braces move your teeth with metal brackets and wires
The traditional braces treatment uses brackets and wires to achieve this goal. The brackets are bonded to the fronts of each tooth, the wires are anchored to the very back teeth using metal bands, and are attached to each bracket using an elastic O-ring. The wires are responsible for the movement of your teeth and stabilizing them in proper alignment.
Drawbacks of braces
- While effective, traditional braces do have a few significant drawbacks.
Because they are metal, they stand out in your smile. This can be a big issue for many patients, particularly older teens and adults. For many, the thought of a metal smile can be more embarrassing than having crooked teeth.
- Braces can cause a fair amount of discomfort. This can be due to the adjustments, which occur about once a month, or the brackets rubbing your soft oral tissues.
- Treatment with braces can also take several years to complete, whereas Invisalign can have faster treatment times.
Invisalign moves your teeth with the clear aligner
The plastic of the aligners is responsible for the movement of your teeth. Much like how the wires of traditional braces work, the plastic puts pressure on your teeth, which then puts pressure on your periodontal ligaments. The ligaments widen, loosening your teeth. The plastic then guides your teeth into proper alignment. Once the correct alignment is achieved, the aligners then hold your teeth in place to stabilize them. After your treatment is complete, you are provided with a retainer to help you maintain your beautiful new smile.
