Invisalign Can Correct
Invisalign is a clear aligner system that uses virtually invisible plastic trays to discreetly and gently move your teeth. The trays are removable, so you can take them out at any time as needed to eat, brush or floss, and are replaced about every two weeks for adjustment. Many patients are turning to this modern alternative to metal braces for a quicker, more comfortable treatment.

What is Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment uses a series of customized, removable, virtually invisible, and comfortable appliances called aligners. They are undetectable so, hardly anyone knows that you are using teeth straightening equipment. Invisalign aligners are made with the use of 3D computer imaging technology. More than 70% of the US orthodontists are certified to administer this treatment.

How Does Invisalign Work?
Each set of aligners are to wear for about two weeks essentially, removing them only to eat, drink, floss, and brush. This is the reason they easily fit into any lifestyle practices. Then you will replace the previous aligner with the next in the series allowing your teeth to subtly moving week by week into the more aligned position over the year.
With traditional braces, you need to visit the dentist frequently for adjustments, while in Invisalign treatment, you need to visit One and Truly Dental, Glen Cove once in six weeks to ensure the progress of treatment as planned.
An average time for the complete course of treatment takes nine to fifteen months and the average number of aligners worn during Invisalign is between 20 and 30. However, both can vary depending upon the patient to the patient.
Issues Corrected with Invisalign
Many of you might wonder whether your teeth can be aligned with Invisalign. Let’s see, are you an eligible candidate for Invisalign?
When your teeth get crowded, it causes them to get out of alignment, become crooked, and overlap. The crowding of teeth causes many problems like tooth decay and plaque buildup as it was difficult to floss and brush efficiently. This may lead to problems like gum diseases and cavities. With Invisalign, teeth may line up more properly and will be healthier.
The spaces between teeth are caused by the extra growth of the jawbone. The gaps between the teeth make it easier for food to get stuck in the spaces leading to bad breathing and increase risk of gum diseases and tooth decay. Invisalign is an effective way to push the teeth back to their place and result in an aligned and healthy smile.
An open bite is when there is space between the upper and lower jaws and the top and bottom teeth do not touch each other at all. If the thumb sucking is the reason behind the open bite, it may stick out like an arch. An open bite may lead to chewing problems, TMJ, speech impairment, and other oral health issues. They can, however, be treated with Invisalign.
An overbite is a condition when the overlapping of upper and lower jaws is caused due to over development of the upper jaw. Most of the time this issue is hereditary and may also be due to bad habits such as extended use of pacifier or thumb sucking. If not treated, it may irritation to gums and result in enamel erosion. A personalized treatment plan for Invisalign can treat this problem.
An underbite is when the lower jaw is overdeveloped or the upper jaw is underdeveloped. It may cause pain in the jaws along with enamel erosion. After examining carefully only, our dentist can decide whether Invisalign is the preferable treatment course for underbite.
