Straightening Teeth with Invisalign Braces in Greenbelt - Advice from Your Greenbelt Dentist

Thursday, October 25, 2018



Greenbelt Dentist, teeth, caring for teeth, dental care, invisalign braces

In the past, orthodontic dentistry was a much more complicated process and was often considered a rather painful procedure. Fortunately, orthodontics have come a long way in the past couple decades, and dentists have developed a variety of new devices and treatments that have completely changed the way we look at smile cosmetics.

Invisalign braces are a rather recent, and much more modern approach to traditional orthodontic dentistry. They are a series of dental trays, molded specifically to a patient’s teeth, which are designed to gently push teeth into their proper position. The process is achieved by periodically switching out the dental trays every couple of months.

Below, we’ll take a better look at the Invisalign process, as well as some of the benefits that it can offer to you. Be sure to make an appointment with John Powers, DMD Greenbelt Dentistry to find out if Invisalign is right for you.

The Process of Invisalign Braces

The first step involved in seeing if Invisalign are right for you is to make an appointment with your dentist for a consultation with your dentist on the subject.

Then, if your dentist believes that Invisalign are right for you, he or she will take scans of your teeth, which will be then be used to create a treatment plan and a set of custom dental trays. The dental trays need to be created in a lab, therefore, it may take a few weeks before you’re ready to pick them up. Read more about the process here.

When the time comes to pick up your Invisalign trays, your dentist will explain the process to you and walk you through everything you need to know about using the trays and when to swap them out. Then, you’ll be ready to start wearing your first tray.

Greenbelt Dentist, teeth, caring for teeth, dental care, invisalign braces

After using the first dental tray for a while, you should already be able to notice a difference in the position of your teeth. Then, after wearing the first tray for the prescribed amount of time, you’ll be able to switch it out with your next tray, which will continue to shift your teeth into the desired position.

Switching out your tray may be slightly uncomfortable at first. However, most people only compare it to feeling a slight pressure or a dull ache in your jaw. Fortunately, the discomfort should subside within a few days, and then your retainer should no longer cause you any pain.

By the time you start wearing your third retainer, your teeth should be visibly straighter than before, and the only thing left to do will be to visit your dentist for a final checkup.

During your last checkup, your dentist will examine your teeth to assess if the Invisalign has done its job properly. He or she will check to make sure that things have progressed as planned, and they will make sure that no other adjustments need to be made.

When your dentist is satisfied, they will likely provide you with a retainer to wear at night, which will make sure that your smile stays straight for good.

Below, we’ll look at a few of the benefits of using Invisalign to straighten teeth compared to traditional braces.


Visibility

Many people shy away from braces simply because of the way they look on your teeth. Fortunately, Invisalign are made of clear plastic trays, which are virtually invisible when worn.

Comfortable

As mentioned, traditionally, braces have been considered as a somewhat painful experience. Not only can they dig into your cheeks, but it can also be quite uncomfortable each time that you have your wires tightened. On the other hand, Invisalign are designed to be comfortable when worn and shouldn’t cause you any pain once you’ve worn your tray for a few days.

Furthermore, Invisalign are removable, which means you can pop them out when it comes time to eat. Regardless, comfort and removability are just two of the many benefits of Invisalign that make them the preferred choice over traditional braces.

Faster Than Braces

Typically, wearing braces can take anywhere from 18 to 24 months to shift your teeth into place. In fact, some people even need to wear braces for as long 3 to 5 years. However, Invisalign are often able to get the job done a short time period, which can be as little as 6 to 12 months. This, of course, will vary depending on your situation. So, it’s best to speak with your dentist to get a better idea of how long Invisalign will take. Click here to read more about it.

By now, you should understand how Invisalign work and how they are an improvement over traditional forms of orthodontic dentistry. Still, it’s important to remember that Invisalign may not be right for everyone.

So, if you’re considering Invisalign, make an appointment with your dentist. They will be able to properly assess your teeth and tell you whether or not Invisalign are right for you.

The Spiral Buffet at Sofitel Manila


Last time I shared our short stay at Sofitel Manila last May/June. Though short, it was a great experience. I wish we can do it again but it was very expensive for us, haha. I should save for it first because I know our little boy will love it.

Anyway, you already saw the Superior Room where we stayed for 3 nights. It comes with buffet breakfast too at the famous The Spiral Buffet.


Oh please excuse my face here, natuwa lang ako mag-selfie kasi ang ganda ng natural light from the window of our room. Maganda din ang view outside.


Okay let's go straight to our The Spiral Buffet experience. Here's me with Daddy A and my colleague, Eric. We are all Chemists :)


And so we wonder if they knew we are Chemists because these were served to us. So sorry I forgot what these are, ang tagal na kasi e haha.
