Straightening your teeth is a big commitment. Wearing traditional braces for the average 2 years means wearing obvious metal brackets and wires on your teeth. Luckily, you can now straighten your teeth without anyone being the wiser. Just ask your Billerica, MA dentist at Grateful Dentists about Invisalign.Invisalign

How does Invisalign work? 
Invisalign uses rigid, comfortable plastic aligner trays. The trays put pressure on the teeth, causing them to move. Small clear bumps called attachments which are affixed to the teeth may aid in the teeth’s movement. The aligners are switched to the next tray in the series every two weeks until you complete your treatment. Teens and adults can use Invisalign.

Before Invisalign
Before using Invisalign, your teeth should be healthy and free of plaque, tartar and decay. This means your dentist may have to perform some procedures like fillings or cleanings before you can start your Invisalign treatment. A dental laboratory uses a mold of your mouth made by your dentist to create your Invisalign treatment plan. You will see a video showing the exact way your teeth will move while you wear your aligner trays. The video also shows you what your teeth will look like after treatment. When you approve the video, a dental technician creates your aligner trays and delivers them to your dentist’s office.

Treatment
Your aligner trays are removable and are normally switched for the next tray in the series every two weeks. You should take your aligners out to eat and brush. Cleaning the trays is easy using the Invisalign cleaning kit, or you can simply soak them and rinse them while you brush your teeth. You will need to see your dentist every 4 to 6 weeks for a checkup. You are expected to have the dedication to wear your aligner trays for the required 22 hours a day. Failure to wear your trays has a direct effect on your end results. However, you may remove your trays for special events.
