Invisalign Centerville MN | What To Expect From Invisalign (Part 2)
Invisalign is an efficient, gradual, and cost-effective way to straighten teeth and treat common dental problems. Part 1 of this blog series detailed what Invisalign treatment is, how it works, and what happens during your consultation(s). Here are a few more things to note when it comes to Invisalign treatment: Invisalign Centerville MN
What Does The Treatment Process Look Like?
Depending on your treatment plan, it’s common for patients to start wearing a new set of aligners every couple of weeks to continue gradually shifting the formation of the teeth. While every case is different, 20-29 sets of aligners are fairly typical for patients. Your aligners will need to be worn 20-22 hours per day in order to get the desired results in the shortest amount of time. You’ll make regularly scheduled visits with your dentist to help ensure your treatment is going as planned and make any adjustments as necessary. If you lose or break your Invisalign trays, you must contact your local dentist immediately. Your Invisalign provider near Centerville will work with you to remain on track with your treatment plan, which may involve wearing your previous or next set of aligners, or ordering replacement aligners.
How Can It Help Me?
Invisalign is commonly associated with the aesthetics of getting a straighter smile, and many people find it beneficial for that alone. However, Invisalign treatment can help treat several common (and even not-so-common) dental problems that impact dental health. Invisalign can help treat overbite, underbite, crossbite, overcrowding, large gaps between teeth, and even TMJ disorder. Dental problems can be a major source of pain for many people, but Invisalign can help by realigning the teeth to be set in a straighter formation that promotes good dental health. Talk to your local dentist near Centerville MN to determine if Invisalign can help with your particular dental problem.
Where Is Invisalign Offered?
Invisalign treatment is only offered at orthodontists and dentists where there are Invisalign-trained doctors, so not every dental practice offers Invisalign treatment. Practices are required to complete specialized Invisalign training in order to offer Invisalign treatment to the public. Birch Lake Dental, your local dentist, is proud to be an Invisalign provider near Centerville MN.
What Will Daily Life Look Like?
It may take a few weeks to adjust to wearing your Invisalign trays. Being that the trays are to be worn 20-22 hours per day, it takes a lot of self-discipline to see desired results within a short amount of time. Many people really enjoy the opportunity to remove the aligners though, because there aren’t any restrictions on eating or drinking. Make sure you properly clean them (you can use the Invisalign Cleaning System or brush them with a toothbrush and toothpaste and rinse them in lukewarm water) and brush your teeth before you reinsert them. Most people get used to wearing the trays and into the habits in a short amount of time and can see results in a matter of weeks.
All in all, many adults find Invisalign to be a great solution to realign their teeth and feel confident in their smiles. The Invisalign trays are virtually invisible, a major benefit to adults who don’t want the metalwork of traditional braces in their mouths.
