You should wear your Invisalign® retainers at least 21 hours daily for the best results.
What Is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® refers to custom-made, transparent aligner trays that straighten your teeth. These trays are placed over your teeth, gently shifting them into the desired position as prescribed by your dentist. Each aligner is custom-created to the precise measurements of your teeth to exert the appropriate amount of pressure and realign your smile effectively. This precise customization is made possible through advanced technology, including digital impressions and X-rays, which create a replica of your teeth.
You can take these trays off for daily activities such as brushing your teeth, flossing and eating. Because Invisalign® braces are transparent, it is difficult for others to notice that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment, making it a popular option.
Dental Choice offers Invisalign® braces in Red Deer, and our team of dentists is ready to assist you through the entire process of aligning your teeth. After you attend an Invisalign® consultation at our Red Deer office, we can start the process of straightening your teeth.
How Our Red Deer Invisalign® Clinic Can Help You
Straight teeth make for a confident smile and also benefit your overall health. With Invisalign® technology, Dental Choice can assist you with various misalignment issues, including:
- Crowding: This occurs when there is not enough space in the jaw for all teeth to fit properly.
- Spacing: This occurs when there are gaps between teeth.
- Edge-to-edge bite: This happens when the bottom and top front teeth meet each other directly.
- Excessive overjet: This happens when the top front teeth protrude too far over the bottom front teeth.
- Deep bite: This happens when the upper front teeth excessively cover the lower front teeth.
- Open bite: This occurs when the front teeth do not meet when the jaws are closed.
- Crossbite: This happens when the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth.
Invisalign®’s clear design makes it a popular choice for orthodontic treatment. Here are some common questions and answers about this aligner:
How Long Should I Wear My Invisalign® Aligners Each Day?
How Long Does Invisalign® Treatment Last?
The duration of Invisalign® treatment differs among individuals and can range from three months to two years.
Is Invisalign® Painful?
During the first days of using a new set of aligners, you may experience slight discomfort, but this is a positive indication that the aligners are effectively shifting your teeth. The discomfort experienced is typically mild pressure that subsides within a few days.
How Often Should I See My Dentist for Invisalign® Treatment?
On average, dentists need to see adult patients using Invisalign® every six weeks. With the guidance of a dentist, your treatment progress can be closely monitored to ensure optimal results.
