If you have crooked or misaligned teeth and are thinking about the best choice of braces, then you need to speak to your dentist and find out about Invisalign Macleod.
Over the last few decades, Invisalign Macleod has become one of the most popular types of orthodontic treatment across the world.
It is modern, comfortable, convenient, and most importantly, highly discreet. With Invisalign, you can undergo teeth straightening in secret.
No one will know unless you wish to tell them; this is because Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth. The aligners will be designed with modern dental technology to fit your mouth precisely for excellent aesthetic results and comfort.
A clear aligner system
By making sure each aligner fits correctly, Invisalign can produce highly predictable results. The aligner is designed to apply enough pressure to move your teeth in a certain direction without giving them the chance to move back.
If worn correctly, each aligner should move your teeth by approximately 0.25 to 0.3 mm; this means that depending on how crooked or misaligned your teeth initially are, you can achieve a neatly aligned smile within a short amount of time.
The average time taken to straighten teeth with Invisalign is between six and 12 months; however, for patients who suffer from complex orthodontic issues, this can be longer.
Compliance is crucial for the success of Invisalign. You will need to wear your aligners for approximately 20 to 22 hours each day; this prevents your teeth from slipping back and promotes a neater formation. You should only remove your aligners before you have a meal or clean your teeth.
During this time, you can soak the aligners in a cleaning solution and wear them once you have brushed and cleaned your teeth thoroughly. The aligners are BPA-free, and because they are designed to fit over your teeth accurately, there is little or no chance of cuts and sores developing in your mouth.
It is important that you remove and replace your aligners carefully to avoid damaging them so that you can continue the process without any delays.
You will be provided with a full set of aligners at the start of the treatment period, and you must move on to the next aligner in the series every two weeks, visiting your dentist at regular intervals to make sure that the process is coming along successfully.
It is recommended that you visit the dentist after every three or four aligners to ensure that your teeth remain clean and healthy and that the current positions of your teeth are in step with the treatment plan.
Advantages of Invisalign
By undergoing treatment with Invisalign, you can improve your dental health and the alignment of your teeth, which will have a huge impact on the appearance of your smile.
Teeth that are neatly aligned are less prone to developing tooth decay and gum disease, and hopefully, Invisalign will help you prolong the life of your teeth so that you can enjoy good dental health for many years to come.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
