Invisalign Braces in Guelph
Invisalign braces allow you to straighten your teeth in a convenient and almost invisible solution. They are a great alternative to traditional braces allowing you to straighten your teeth without sacrificing your appearance.
What are Invisalign braces?
Invisalign braces are clean aligners, an alternative to bulky metal braces that are used to straighten crooked teeth and correct bite issues. They are also made to fit the patients teeth and gradually over months and sometimes years work to place teeth in the desired position. Invisalign braces are placed and monitored under the supervision of an orthodontist for the duration of the treatment. They are also removable allowing the patients to remove and brush the teeth normally. They are a great alternative to braces for adults and children who want to achieve a straighter smile without the appearance of the metal braces
Is the treatment process with Invisalign braces painful?
Invisalign treatment is typically not painful and the aligners are designed to apply gentle pressure to your teeth to move them into the desired position, and this pressure is usually not painful. If you experience any discomfort during your Invisalign treatment, your orthodontist can provide recommendations to help manage it. Overall, the treatment process with Invisalign braces is much less painful than traditional braces, it tends to be a more comfortable and convenient alternative.
Can you eat and drink normally with Invisalign braces?
You can eat and drink normally, as the aligners are removable. You simply need to remove the aligners when you eat or drink anything other than water. However, it is important to avoid eating or drinking anything that could potentially stain the aligners, such as coffee, tea, or red wine. It is also important to brush your teeth after eating and before reinserting the aligners to keep your teeth and aligners clean.
How often do you need to visit the orthodontist during Invisalign treatment?
Regular appointments are important to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned and to make any necessary changes to your treatment plan. Generally speaking, you will need to visit your orthodontist every 6 to 8 weeks during Invisalign treatment. During these appointments, your orthodontist will monitor your progress, make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan, and give you new aligners.
