Invisalign is a teeth straightening treatment which brings the teeth into alignment with a series of clear aligner trays. It is a fantastic alternative to traditional braces for straightening crooked and misaligned teeth. Blundell Dental, a dental clinic that provides Invisalign in Richmond, BC, has helped numerous patients achieve their desired smile with this treatment.
Invisalign treatment starts with your dentist taking accurate impressions of your teeth. These impressions are used to create a set of custom aligner trays which are designed to shift your teeth into alignment over time. Each tray is worn for about two weeks at a time.
Using Invisalign to straighten your teeth can help increase your confidence and give you the smile you've always wanted.
The Advantages of Invisalign
Invisalign has many benefits over traditional braces, the most noticeable of which is that the aligner trays are clear and usually go unnoticed. Even today's smaller and more discreet braces stand out far more than Invisalign trays. Invisalign is a great choice for people who are worried about the look of their teeth, but who are more worried about the look of braces.
Another major reason why people choose Invisalign in Richmond, BC is that treatment is much faster than treatment with braces, which can take up to 5 years. Invisalign usually achieves the desired effects within a year, and can sometimes take as little as 6 months.
Invisalign aligners are also more comfortable to wear than braces, rarely causing much discomfort after you've gotten used to them. They can be removed when need be as well, such as when you want to eat or drink.
Good Candidates for Invisalign
Invisalign is typically used by adults, and is not a good treatment option for children because their teeth and jaws are still developing. It can, however, be an effective orthodontic solution for older teenagers as well. Aside from alignment issues, a good candidate for Invisalign will have otherwise healthy teeth and gums.
Invisalign can be used to correct a number of different orthodontic problems. It is often used for spacing issues such as gaps between teeth and for teeth that are overly crowded and have therefore been forced to grow in crookedly. Furthermore, Invisalign can be used to correct issues with a patient's bite. It has been used successfully for cases of overbite, underbite, open bite, and crossbite.
