In orthodontics, there is a dental appliance known as the clear aligner. This clear aligner is better known by its brand name Invisalign. Similar to the customary braces that many wear, an appliance from Invisalign is capable of straightening crooked teeth and aligning bites that are misaligned.
At Art of Smile – Center for Cosmetic Orthodontics, our dentists will get the ball rolling with your impression. That way your Invisalign will be perfect.
With clear aligners, they will create the necessary pressure so the teeth can transition to the right location. Normally, stages are used in the aligning process and each stage usually lasts for no more than two weeks which you will then begin the next aligner. Occasionally, an attachment will be placed with your aligner. Although the attachments are tiny, they are able to stay tightly connected to the teeth.
What Is The Purpose Of An Attachment?
Are Attachments Needed By Everyone?
Will The Cost Of The Attachment Be Affected?
Is Pain Involved With Invisalign?
Having Invisalign may involve a little bit of discomfort after they are first applied or during your switch to the next aligner. This is only because the pressure is increased with the attachment as the teeth are being aligned. If the feeling of uncomfortableness is happening to you and your Invisalign, then getting a hold of us will allow you the opportunity to have adjustments made.
