If you have a malocclusion and need orthodontic treatment but don’t want it to be noticeable, you should explore Invisalign braces. Stamford Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that can effectively correct malocclusions without having to deal with unattractive and bothersome wires and metal brackets that you would with standard braces.
Invisalign braces are proven effective in correcting many malocclusions. They offer numerous benefits. Since they’re not detectable and are virtually invisible, no one will even know that you’re wearing them. Invisalign straightens teeth through the use of a series of clear plastic aligners. The Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear. Stamford Invisalign patients need to wear the aligners all day with the exception of eating and teeth-brushing. Invisalign braces are removable and are taken out prior to eating and teeth brushing so they don’t interfere with these activities. The treatment requires the use of numerous sets of aligners. Each set of aligners needs to be worn for a period of two weeks. After the two weeks, the patient will need to wear the next set of aligners. Each set of aligners gingerly shifts the patient’s teeth closer toward proper alignment until they ultimately reach the desired position at the end of treatment. Invisalign treatment generally takes about a year to complete but varies from patient to patient depending on how severe the malocclusion is and on the patient’s individual situation. If you’re considering Invisalign, you will need to be seen be an experienced dental professional like ours at Middlesex Dental Group to determine if you’re a candidate. If you are a candidate, your dentist will take dental impressions of your teeth and will send them to the Invisalign laboratory where they will custom make your aligners for you. The series of Invisalign aligners will be created through Invisalign’s own unique computerized imaging system.
