If you need orthodontic treatment but the noticeable metal traditional braces have, you should explore the possibility of getting Invisalign braces. Richmond Invisalign braces can are just as effective in correcting malocclusions as conventional braces are, minus the unattractive & uncomfortable wires and metal brackets. If you’re considering Invisalign, you should consult with an experienced dentist.
Invisalign is able to correct many types of improper bites (malocclusions). The process involves the use of a series of clear plastic aligners. Each set is worn by the patient for period of two weeks and the next set is introduced and worn. The aligners have to be worn about 22 hours a day; all day with the exception of eating and teeth-brushing. They won’t interfere with eating and teeth-brushing because the aligners are removable & patients take them out beforehand. Each set of aligners shifts the teeth a bit more into the desired position until they are in their exact desired position at the end of treatment. Generally speaking, the amount of time a patient is treated with Invisalign is comparable to conventional braces. Although it varies from patient to patient and depends on how severe the patient’s malocclusion is, it takes approximately 12-24 months to complete treatment. Richmond Invisalign braces are comfortable, clear and are virtually undetectable. People can’t tell when patients are wearing Invisalign braces. If you’re considering Invisalign braces, you need to be evaluated by a professional dentist like ours at Fred Ballou to determine if he or she is a good candidate. If it’s determined that you’re a good candidate, your dentist will take dental impressions that are sent to the Invisalign lab. The Invisalign lab uses its own one-of-a-kind computerized system to create your custom-made aligners for you.
