The Straight Truth: Learn More about Invisalign

Invisalign is fast becoming one of the most popular ways to treat a wide range of orthodontic problems, mostly because it is comfortable and less embarrassing than braces. For those who want to go this route, here are a few facts on the process.

What oral conditions can Invisalign treat?

Since its inception, Invisalign has been used to treat various kinds of dental problems including overbites, underbites, and over-crowded and misaligned teeth. With its latest model, Invisalign now aims to solve another prevalent oral condition—the deep bite.

What does wearing Invisalign entail?

A person wearing Invisalign braces will need to schedule meetings with his Invisalign dentist every 2 weeks. In these meetings, the orthodontist will inspect if the process is progressing as planned. If the initial set has done its job, the dentist will then hand over new aligners to proceed with the next step in the procedure.

If you’re considering the advantages of this kind of treatment, it is important that you consult with a dentist or orthodontist to determine if Invisalign is recommended for your case.

What if you’re feeling anxious about your Invisalign procedure?

If you’re nervous about your dental visit, talk to a professional that offers sedation dentistry. This option provides a safe and comfortable alternative to traditional treatment for patients who suffer from anxiety or who may have other special needs.
