If you're considering Invisalign clear aligners to straighten your smile, you may be wondering what kind of results you can expect. Our BC Straight Smile dentists explain more about what you could expect from Invisalign treatment.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of custom aligners that work to gradually guide your teeth into their corrected positions, without the hassle of metal brackets and wires.
Throughout your treatment you will switch to a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until the desired amount of tooth movement has resulted. Each set of clear aligners is designed to make specific, tiny adjustments to the positioning of your teeth until a straighter smile is achieved.
Invisalign aligners are almost completely invisible when worn, which means that hardly anyone will notice that you are straightening your teeth, and you will be able to see your smile evolve throughout your treatment.
Orthodontic Treatment with Less Hassle
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign's clear aligners are also removable. Simply take out your aligners and enjoy all of your favourite foods! There's no need to give up the foods you love while straightening your teeth.
Even your at-home oral hygiene routine will stay much the same as before your Invisalign treatment began. When it's time to clean your teeth, pop your aligners out and store them safely in their handy case, then clean your teeth, rinse your aligners, and return them to your mouth.
Invisalign can treat a number of dental health issues from gapped teeth to overcrowded teeth, and overbites to underbites.
To find out if Invisalign treatment can correct your dental issue contact your BC Straight Smile dentist to book a consultation. After a thorough assessment, if your dentist decides that you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign treatment you will be shown how Invisalign could transform your smile, and a personalized treatment plan will be created just for you.
Your treatment plan will set out what results you can expect at the end of your Invisalign orthodontic treatment. Of course, every smile is unique, and treatment plans vary accordingly but, to achieve the best results from your treatment it's important to diligently follow the plan and the instructions set out by your dentist.
Your Invisalign Results
Depending on the nature and extent of your misalignment issue, there are a number of things you can expect after your Invisalign treatment is complete.
At the end of your treatment, provided that you have followed the treatment plan prescribed by your dentist, you can expect to see a straighter and more even smile that you will be excited to show off. Patients with bite issues can also expect to see a marked improvement in the function and appearance of their smile.
