- Posted on: Jan 30 2020
Invisalign is one of today’s most revolutionary options for straightening the smile. However, along with a recommendation of Invisalign is that of many, many questions for the dentist. Dr. Nancy Gill of Golden Dental Solutions offers Golden, CO area patients information regarding this popular treatment option.
How does Invisalign work?
Dr. Nancy Gill describes Invisalign as a method of realigning the smile with the use of plastic alignment trays. These are worn day and night to achieve better alignment over the course of several months.
How is Invisalign invisible?
Many patients choose Invisalign because it is much less noticeable than more conventional orthodontia that covers the smile with metal brackets and wires. Invisalign is practically invisible as the aligner trays are made of high quality plastics that are clear.
Does Invisalign hurt?
While some patients experience soreness when switching to their newest tray every two months, most find that the treatment is much more comfortable than traditional orthodontics. Also, Invisalign is smooth and comfortable to wear, eliminating scratching and discomfort commonly caused with brackets and wires in the mouth.
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
The best candidates for Invisalign orthodontics are patients with mild to moderate malocclusion who are seeking a fast yet discreet way to improve their smile. Potential Invisalign patients are screened by Dr. Nancy Gill to determine if this treatment would benefit an individual based on their unique needs. Patients considering Invisalign need to be compliant with treatment to see the desired results in the reported timeframe during the initial consultation.
How do I care for my teeth with Invisalign?
Invisalign trays should be worn for at least 20 hours a day. This includes day and night. Patients can remove the Invisalign aligners to brush and floss their teeth as they normally do. This is what makes treatment better for one’s oral health when compared to metal braces.
