Invisalign Dental Bracings

Invisalign are also known as “clear aligners”; they are clear transparent orthodontic devices that are used to adjust the form of the teeth. They are a clear, transparent, and plastic form of traditional dental braces.

ClearCorrect and Invisalign are just two of the twenty-seven different types of clear braces available on the market today. Throughout all the changes that these clear aligners have undergone it is still very difficult to assess their effectiveness. Prior expertise has been able to make a determination that the use of invisalign clear aligners is more helpful as far as the correction and moderston of any overcrowding of the front teeth; but as far as other issues they are not as effective as traditional braces.

Invisalign clear aligners are not recommended for use on children; clear aligners are best used for mild to moderate crowding issues—(1-6 mm) and mild to moderate spacing (1-6 mm). Clear aligners are not recommended for any issues with jaw bone inconsistencies or any prior problems with conventional braces.

The treatment with a clear aligner or invisalign dentist should involve the use of a dentist with a home-based system; in that way the person can take the molds of the person’s teeth with a digital tooth scanner. The computerized designers are worn for twenty hours a day, for two weeks. This will slowly adjust the patient’s teeth over a period of about thirteen months.

Invisalign braces have transformed the orthondictics world, patients no longer have the only option of wearing the ugly metal braces to improve their smiles; they now have the option of wearing a clear plastic aligner that will shift their teeth in half the time.

It is still critical that patients wear their invisalign aligners as prescribed; every day, except to take it off when the floss, brush, eat or drink. Otherwise, in order for the invisalign aligner to do its proper job the patient must be wearing their invisalign aligner as prescribed. The patient wears each aligner for about a period of two weeks; and it is urgent to keep all scheduled appointments. By failing to keep all scheduled appointments can further delay and slow the process of the results.

As a parent you want to be able to make the right choice, which is going to do the best job correcting your child’s teeth.

Invisalign does not have the same history as traditional metal braces since they have only been in use since about 2000.

The use of braces have been the traditional use, which have consisted of metal brackets that are tied together with tiny rubber bands; you can now get these rubber bands in several color choices; either to match your teeth for a more discreet look, or as some prefer, in bright fashionable collars to make their own fashion statement!

Invisalign is meant for complete discreteness the orthodontist will make impressions of their patient’s teeth and make the invisalign out of a smoot free plastic which will be worn over the teeth in a gentle manner. X-Rays, 3D images and impressions are used to make the invisalign a comfortable experience.

Whatever choice you decide to use when straightening out your or your child’s smile. It is completely up to you, the orthodontist, and your child. You can go with the traditional braces, or the new discreet invisalign model. However, whichever ever choice you make, it is still ultimately up to the final decision of your orthodontist to decide what method will be the healthiest method to use.
