Invisalign is a clear aligner system used by dentists for teeth straightening. They are designed as thin plastic and hardly noticeable to other people. After your dentist has decided that you need invisaligners;

  • You’ll need to wear a set of aligners for about 1-2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink and clean them.
  • You must keep in mind that every time you change the aligner your teeth will move.
  • You’ll need to make a visit to your dentist every 4-6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing accordingly.
  • Once you have finished all of the invisible aligners you’ll be provided with retainers to help stop your teeth from relapsing.

About Invisalign Retainers

Invisaligners come to play after you’ve finished your invisalign treatment to help lock our teeth in place and prevent relapse. This is because, after invisalign treatment, the dental bones are soft and spongy so, the teeth can drift within it. You should think of retainers as a crucial part of Invisalign treatment and be ready for the lifelong commitment of wearing them.

Some Advantages of Invisalign

  • Invisalign is COMFORTABLE: It’s easy to take the clear aligners in and out for eating. They’re easy to remove and clean and less time is needed for dental appointments.
  • Invisalign is DISCREET: They are clear, making them almost invisible to people around you.

Overall, making a decision about using invisaligners and the management afterwards will be best done after professional consultation with a qualified dentist.
