Although orthodontic treatment gets great results, many people are hesitant about embarking on treatment because they’re self-conscious of how they’ll look during the process. That is no longer a problem thanks to Invisalign, which uses virtually invisible aligners to move teeth into position.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is an innovative method of orthodontic treatment that doesn’t use brackets, archwires or small elastic bands. Instead, it uses clear, plastic aligners that look like thin sports mouthguards. Every 10 days you’ll need to change your aligners, which are custom-made to your teeth, so they continue to move towards the desired position. This is easy to do as the aligners are removable. In fact, you can take them out for eating, brushing and flossing or for important occasions such as business meetings, family weddings or a first date!
DENTAL MONITORING AND invisalign
At Allsopp Orthodontics, we’re excited to bring the latest orthodontic technology to our Invisalign patients. Dental monitoring allows us to track the movement of your teeth while wearing these aligners via an app on your smartphone. Yes, it really is that easy. All you need to do is download the dental monitoring app to your smartphone, send us weekly selfies of your teeth, and we’ll assess the images on our in-house software. This makes it even easier to fit orthodontic treatment into your lifestyle because there are fewer check-up appointments you need to add to your dairy.
