Invisalign is a method of treatment that corrects different types of orthodontic issues. If you are considering this treatment method, it’s important to know how it works and if it can correct problems. Once you’re properly informed, you can decide if it’s the right choice for you or your child. You can get answers here from all over the world…
How Does it Work?
This treatment method uses a series of specially crafted aligners that are made of a powerful thermoplastic material. Each aligner straightens your teeth a little more than the last using controlled force. Depending on the type of problem you have, you’ll need to be treated for about six months minimum. The maximum amount of time that treatment takes is about three years.
Does it Really Work?
In general, this treatment method works very well. Whether or not it will work for you depends on a number of factors. Dental issues it can correct include the following:
- Gaps in Teeth
- Misaligned Teeth
- Other Issues
If you have an underbite or an overbite, then this treatment method will be able to fix these conditions as long as it’s not severe. Severe cases will require a different treatment method. If you have crowded teeth, gaps in your teeth, or if your teeth aren’t lined up properly, then it can help fix these conditions, too.
Invisalign won’t work for very severe cases, so it’s important to be thoroughly evaluated by your trusted orthodontist team to make sure this is the right treatment plan for you.
It’ll also completely fix your dental issues in an efficient manner if an experienced and skilled orthodontics team is treating you. Generally, it’s best to see an orthodontist when you are considering this treatment method because they are very skilled in this area of treatment. For best results, find an Invisalign Preferred Provider.
What is an Invisalign Preferred Provider?
This is an orthodontist who has a lot of experience with this treatment method. Preferred providers have successfully treated many people with Invisalign.
If you choose a preferred provider, you will be in the hands of an experienced professional that knows exactly how to treat your condition and will give you the best results possible.
If you were to be treated by someone who isn’t very familiar with this particular orthodontic treatment method, then they have a higher chance of making a mistake or not treating you in an efficient manner.
