3 Questions to Ask Before Getting Invisalign
Not everyone was born with a picture-perfect, Hollywood smile. That is okay! It simply means you need to invest in your smile. Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called Aligners. For many, Invisalign® is the best way to straighten out your smile. Of course, like all important choices in a person’s life, the decision to meet with a Houston, TX orthodontist and purchase this product is one that shouldn’t be taken lightly. It’s time you ask some pretty important questions. You can begin with these:
1. How does my treatment begin?
You are sick and tired of hiding your smile, and anxious to get started. This is understandable! Your exact treatment path depends on you as a unique patient, but it should start either by taking a scan of your teeth or making a physical impression. This is done in order to get perfect, personalized Invisalign® trays that will begin the process of straightening your teeth.
2. How long will I need to wear them?
Again, the answer to this question differs from person to person. Many patients finish their Invisalign® treatment in eight to 10 months. Depending on the severity of misalignment, this could take less or more time. No matter how long you need Invisalign®, it is a much quicker process than traditional, metal braces.
3. Does Invisalign® work as well as traditional braces?
Yes, it does! Whether you go with traditional braces or Invisalign, the end result will be the same. You will finally have the straight, beautiful teeth you have always wanted. Because Invisalign® works so much faster and you can remove them when you want to eat your favorite foods or take a picture, you could even say this treatment plan is better than metal braces!
