Would Invisalign Work for Me?
posted: Feb 21, 2020.
Are you considering orthodontic treatment to improve your smile? Invisalign, a discreet orthodontic system offered by your Colorado Springs, CO, dentist, Dr. Sheldon Golomb, may be the perfect option for you.
Invisalign subtly straightens your teeth
Unlike other types of orthodontic treatment, Invisalign requires no wires. Before you begin your treatment, your dentist creates a 3D digital image of your mouth that's used to make a series of custom aligner trays for you. These trays are designed to gradually improve your smile by exerting constant pressure on your teeth.
The removable trays fit snugly over your teeth and are made of clear plastic to ensure that your smile, not your orthodontic treatment, is the first thing that your friends notice. You'll wear your aligners for 22 hours per day and swap aligner trays every two weeks.
Is Invisalign right for you?
Invisalign can be an excellent choice if:
- You're unhappy with your smile.
- You want a subtle straightening option.
- You want to straighten crooked teeth or improve crowding.
- You have a mild-to-moderate bite problem.
- You're willing to follow the recommended wear schedule and practice good oral hygiene.
Due to the removable nature of the aligners, your oral care routine won't change with Invisalign. After you take out your trays, you'll brush and floss your teeth the same way you always have. Following a quick rinse, you'll put the trays back in your mouth and carry on with your day. The trays are also removed when you eat, which means that you won't have to give up any foods during your treatment.
It's easy to take a short break from your orthodontic when you need to, thanks to your removable trays. In fact, you can remove your trays for a few hours while you play sports or attend a wedding.
