Teeth straightening got easier than ever before!

Invisalign Attachments

If straightening your teeth and sporting a pleasing smile are on your wish list, here is help. Invisalign is increasingly becoming a preferred orthodontic method to achieve it. Not without reason!

What are Invisalign Attachments?

Invisalign treatment involves wearing clear, removable aligners that carefully push your teeth into a desired position. With 3-D computer imaging, these aligners are customized to your bespoke needs. Additionally, you can, through a process of simulation, actually look at the expected results at the end of the treatment.

As opposed to regular braces, Invisalign aligners are fabricated with transparent and thin thermoplastic material, which is extremely comfortable. The clear resin attachments may be added to select teeth for effective tooth movement. With no metal, you can rest assured that the inside of the lip or tongue will not be scrapped.

The fact that the aligners are removable to ensure that maintaining dental hygiene is easy. The removable aligners also mean that there are no dietary restrictions, as you need to simply take off the aligners whenever you are consuming any food.

How does Invisalign work?

Typically, you are required to wear a set of aligners for around two weeks, for an average of 22 hours a day. A new set of aligners needs to be worn at the end of two weeks. With each new set of aligners, the teeth are gradually pushed into the desired position. An average treatment length with aligners is 12 months, however, the time will depend upon the exact dental condition.

Benefits of Invisalign Attachments

The major benefits of Invisalign attachments include:

  • They are invisible; hence you can wear them without being conscious of the fact that people will be able to tell that you are wearing aligners.
  • They are extremely comfortable.
  • They are removable.
  • They ensure you must attend a few dental appointments.
  • The treatment time is an average of a year.

#1 - Dental Crowding

If your teeth are not uniformly spaced, Invisalign is your answer. Crowded teeth do not just look good aesthetically, such teeth are also prone to plaque buildup as it is not possible to clean them thoroughly. Invisalign treatment ensures that the spacing between teeth is corrected, helping you to improve oral hygiene as well as aesthetics.
