Living with crooked and misaligned teeth can be troublesome as it affects your smile, the way you talk, and even compromises chewing. Many teenagers and adults happen to live with crooked teeth despite the troubles, as they cannot imagine undergoing traditional orthodontic treatment with metal braces. The thought of having metal in the mouth can be distressing for many and keeps them away from getting the treatment they need.
However, thanks to the ever-advancing dental industry, you can now get a perfectly aligned smile without having to go through the ordeal of metal braces. How did you ask?

The answer is – Invisalign!

Invisalign is a novel orthodontic treatment modality that takes the help of clear aligners to achieve a well-aligned smile. These clear aligners are made from medical-grade soft plastic and are custom-made to fit each patient’s individual needs. So, if you wish for straight and well-aligned teeth, schedule an appointment with our Invisalign dentist at Tecumseh Family Dental today.

How does Invisalign work?

Once you schedule an Invisalign appointment with us, our dentist will conduct a thorough oral examination to analyze the extent of misalignment and check for your overall dental health. Some x-rays and photographs are also taken, which assists in treatment planning. Once they have completed their analysis and you are found to be the right candidate for Invisalign, they will explain to you your treatment.

The best part about your initial Invisalign appointment at Tecumseh Family Dental is that you will be able to visualize how your teeth will look post-treatment. Advanced computing technology and 3D dental scanning allow us to create a visual image of your smile after treatment.

After this, your measurements are sent to the lab, where your clear aligners are made. You will be fitted with your first pair of Invisalign aligners in your next appointment. These aligners have to be worn for a minimum of 22 hours each day. Every pair must be worn for two weeks, after which it is replaced by the next one in series till the final desired results are achieved. Teeth straightening with Invisalign can take anywhere from 6 to 18 months. The duration of treatment depends on individual cases and will be decided by your dentist at Tecumseh Family Dental.

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign has towering benefits, which have immensely contributed to its popularity and desirability.

  • Discreet – Invisalign is made of clear plastic, which makes it virtually invisible. Most of the time, people won’t be able to tell you are wearing this aligner. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign remains invisible in photographs. It does not affect the way you smile during the course of your treatment. Invisalign works silently in the background as you carry on with your work and everyday life.
  • Removable – Unlike traditional braces that are fixed, Invisalign offers removable teeth straightening option. Invisalign can be removed during eating and does not put any restrictions on the food you eat. You can enjoy your life and eat your favourite foods without any restrictions.
  • Convenient – Invisalign is convenient and hassle-free and also requires fewer dental visits as compared to traditional braces.
  • No metal in the mouth – There are no metallic parts to Invisalign, which means you won’t have any wires or brackets in your mouth. This also means that there are no chances that you will be hurt because of a poking or a broken wire.
  • Comfortable – Since there are no wires or brackets, Invisalign offers greater comfort, which again contributes to its desirability. Patients who have opted for Invisalign in the past at Tecumseh Family Dental have also reported having a comfortable and pain-free experience.
  • Available for all ages – Whether you are a teenager or in your mid 30’s, you can opt for Invisalign. There is no age bar for Invisalign!  Many adults, especially those working in a consumer-facing environment like the entertainment industry, cannot opt for traditional metal braces. In such situations, Invisalign offers them a teeth-straightening solution as it is virtually invisible and does not affect aesthetics. Invisalign is also a great teeth-straightening solution for sportspersons.
  • It makes maintaining good oral hygiene possible – As discussed earlier, Invisalign is removable, which means you can remove it for brushing and flossing. It makes maintaining good oral hygiene possible, which lowers the risk of dental decay and gum diseases and keeps your mouth and you healthy.

Invisalign tends to be a little more expensive than conventional orthodontic treatment, but it is a one-time investment and offers incomparable results. So, if you wish to have a perfectly aligned smile without the metal, opt for Invisalign at Tecumseh Family Dental.
