Finishing Invisalign Treatment


Finishing Invisalign

It has been over a year since I first joined the Invisalign Mom Advisory Board and started Invisalign. About two months ago, I finished my last of trays and am proud to say that I am officially an Invisalign graduate. As adults it's a well-known fact that we can't bury the awkward and embarrassing memories we have of our teenage years, try as we might. The photographs on our parents mantles or stuffed away in an overflowing photo album won't let us forget our blemishes, gawky appearances and questionable fashion sense.

One thing that stands out in my memory as a teenager more clearly than anything else are my own insecurities when it came to my appearance, namely my smile. Unfortunately for me I wasn't blessed with flawless teeth like some of my friends; I have a few imperfections that I always disliked through my growing up years and I never got braces. This is a common problem for children, teenagers and adults alike but especially something that teenagers agonize over.

Invisalign 2About Invisalign

Designed by Align Technology, Invisalign are clear aligners designed to do the job of regular metal braces without all of the clunky gear. Created in 1999, Invisalign made their way onto the Orthodontic scene officially in 2001 and had manufactured over 1 million aligners. By combining digital treatment planning and mass-customization, with shape-engineering based on biomechanical principles, Align Technology has revolutionized the Orthodontic industry with their “invisible” aligners.
Invisalign (a discreet clear aligner option) is the innovative way to straighten your teeth without all the hassle of traditional braces, which makes it especially perfect for teenagers who are considering getting braces. If you have a teenager who needs braces and who are weighing their options, I've compiled a list of reasons why the Invisalign System is a great option to take into consideration, especially if you’re looking for the top alternatives to traditional braces:
  • Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is free of metal brackets, wires and the discomfort associated with installation.
  • Freedom. With traditional metal braces you're weighed down with the rules and regulations that come with maintaining your braces. There are no food restrictions or multiple step processes to cleaning your aligners.
  • Straightens your teeth while being virtually invisible without the awkward and sometimes embarrassing metal mouth that could lead to self-consciousness and teasing by peers.
  • Office visits only between every 4 to 6 weeks so you're not constantly in and out of the dentist office for adjustments.
  • No mouth sores, discomfort or other related injuries that often occur with metal braces. Thanks to the soft plastic material it's made of, your aligners will never cause you pain.
  • Treats a wide variety of dental cases such as crowding, gaps, spacing, crossbite, overbite and underbite.

InvisalignHow Invisalign Works

Invisalign works by creating a series of custom-made aligners that are made exclusively for your mouth and your specific dental needs. Each aligner is made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you slide in over your teeth. Over time the custom-made aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place based on exact movements your dentist or Orthodontist intends them to.

Invisalign 3The end of Invisalign Treatment

This has been an amazing year and my teeth have never looked better. I am so thrilled with the way my teeth turned out and they even did a great job of aligning my teeth so I no longer have an overbite. My teeth are perfectly straight. I cannot recommend Invisalign enough and I had an amazing orthodontist.

Even though I have finished the treatment, I will always have to wear the retainer trays at night (just like a braces retainer) but that is a small price to pay for perfect teeth, right? The retainer is very similar to an Invisalign tray but is a little thicker. I have an appointment in a week to make certain that the fit is correct (it is) but it is officially the end of my treatment.
