Are Invisalign as effective as braces?
While worn, Invisalign aligners are subtle and barely noticeable, but they still provide effective treatment with predictable, long-lasting results. In fact, in certain cases Invisalign may be even more effective than braces, due to the all-around force of the aligners across the whole tooth.
Can you still kiss with Invisalign?
Can you kiss with Invisalign®? The first bit of good news is that the answer is YES, you absolutely can. Invisalign’s clear design means your pashing partner probably won’t even notice that you’re wearing any aligners. There really is nothing stopping you from kissing with Invisalign®.
Do you need an orthodontist for Invisalign?
While a general dentist is trained to perform a variety of dental procedures like Invisalign, an orthodontist specializes in correcting crooked teeth and other dental irregularities like tooth and jaw misalignment. Just like your dentist, and orthodontist examines your teeth and bite to determine your needs.
How long does Invisalign take to correct your teeth?
A course of treatment with Invisalign takes 12 months for most adults, although actual time will vary from person to person. Many people start seeing a difference in their teeth within two to three months of starting to use the aligners.
Is Invisalign really better than braces?
Invisalign is not necessarily “better” than braces just as braces are not necessarily “better” than Invisalign. The “best” option is determined by informed consent and an honest dialog between you and your doctor.
What to expect with Invisalign?
Invisalign is a process where doctors work with your specific smile to create a series of invisible aligners that gradually shift your teeth into the desired position over a period of time. Your doctor will determine which teeth need to be nudged and when, and the aligners will make a slight adjustment to a tooth position.
