Invisalign in Wexford
When it comes to straightening your teeth, there are many options out there, but none offers the same level of comfort and confidence that is associated with Invisalign. Whether you’re a teen or adult looking to straighten your teeth and improve your smile, you’ll appreciate the many benefits of this revolutionary approach that will collectively have a positive effect on how you look and feel about yourself, even before the treatment is complete.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a cutting-edge approach to straightening your teeth with minimal interference to your lifestyle. The system uses a series of custom-made clear aligners that are specifically designed to fit over your teeth, and gradually and gently move them into the desired position based on the precise movements that Dr. Leslie Pasco will discuss with you during your consultation.
The aligners are made from virtually invisible plastic, which makes them barely noticeable when smiling. Most people can’t even tell that you’re having orthodontic treatment. This allows you to achieve a beautiful smile with minimal interference to your daily life. You simply wear each set of aligners for two weeks, and keep replacing it every fortnight with the next set of aligners until you complete the treatment.
What to Expect during Treatment
The aligners are smooth and comfortable, plus they’re removable. You only need to wear them for about 22 hours a day. So you can remove them when eating and cleaning your teeth, which makes it much easier to enjoy your favorite foods and maintain proper oral hygiene during treatment compared to braces. Make sure to clean them properly as instructed.
You need to visit the dentist every 6-8 weeks, not only to collect your next 3 or 4 sets of aligners, but also for the dentist to assess the treatment progress. There are no brackets to fix or wires to tighten, which reduces the risk of injury and number of trips to the dentist’s office for repairs or tightening.
