Are you dealing with tooth alignment or bite issues? Well, you might not have to go through traditional orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign is a popular orthodontic alternative that can provide a discreet way to get a straight smile. But does this mean you’ll have to wait longer to get the results you want?
Not exactly. Check out this short blog post to discover how Invisalign compared to braces regarding treatment timeline.
Invisalign is a type of clear aligner that can straighten your teeth and fix dental malocclusion issues such as overbites or underbites.
The process involves wearing clear trays for around 22 hours every single day. The aligners put pressure on the teeth, which slowly moves them to their most optimal position to correct your smile.
Throughout your treatment, you’ll need to wear multiple sets of trays.
Invisalign treatment involves a few key steps:
Usually, yes, Invisalign works faster than braces. There are two possible reasons.
First, Invisalign trays are all custom made, so they are more precise when moving your teeth than metal braces.
But, since Invisalign cannot treat severe alignment issues, the treatment length is often much shorter.
Severe bite and alignment issues obviously require more extensive orthodontic interventions.
If you’re interested in Invisalign, your first step is to see Dr. Heejo Han for a consultation to find out if these clear aligners are the right solution for you.
