Crooked teeth and bite problems are a dental challenge. Not only are they unattractive, but they also affect your dental health. Overcrowded and crooked teeth make it hard for you to clean your teeth properly, hence creating a perfect environment for bacteria to grow. Correcting these bite problems is crucial for maintaining your oral health.
Several orthodontic treatments are available to help in straightening your teeth; from traditional to lingual braces. However, if you are looking for a subtle, convenient, and effective orthodontic treatment, Invisalign® is a perfect choice.
Invisalign® braces are removable aligners that work similarly to the traditional braces but in a relatively short time. Interestingly, Invisalign® is not a generic name (as is commonly used) but a brand of invisible aligners.
These clear braces offer great benefits, and here are five reasons why you should get Invisalign® near you.
Invisalign® braces are provided by licensed dental clinics such as Talent Dental. When you come for your treatment, our dentist with the use of the iTero® Element Scanner will map out your smile. The 3D imaging allows the orthodontist to create a perfect fit. Furthermore, the mapping software helps to calculate the right amount of force and pressure to be applied to achieve the desired results. This will ensure that the correct force is applied to each tooth to move it in the right order and time.
Depending on the severity of the malocclusion, the dentist may include SmartForce ® attachment that adds extra support and pressure. The SmartForce ®attachments are tooth-colored shapes that are attached to the braces before or during the treatment.
The Invisalign® treatment Rancho Cucamonga is done in three steps that include:
When you visit our dentist in Rancho Cucamonga, he will use our modern dental equipment and software to examine your teeth. Next, he will do a 3D digital scan and map out your treatment. The digital scans are sent to the lab to make the invisible aligners. Finally, a fit test is done after you receive the aligners
You will receive a set of aligners to be worn for 22 hours every day for two weeks. But, remove the braces when eating. Face-to-face consultation with the doctor is done every six to eight weeks.
Once the orthodontic treatment is done, you will get a retainer to maintain the new position. During the treatment, the ligaments that hold the teeth loosen and you need a retainer to keep the teeth from reverting to the old position. In the first few weeks in the retention phase, you will need to wear the retainers all the time, and thereafter, at night.
Some people have reported having positive results within the first six months. However, the treatment can last for 18 months depending on the severity of the dental problem.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® is not restrictive. You can eat any food or beverage as long as you remove the braces. However, it is important to maintain proper oral hygiene to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Ensure you get a dental assessment every six to eight weeks.
Contrary to a popular assumption, Invisalign® braces are affordable. Some of the dental insurance providers cover a fraction of the total cost. Furthermore, you can get discounts for braces. Contact our dental clinic for more information on the financial plans we offer and accept.
