Invisalign braces are modern way to treat dental abnormalities. These braces are quite superior than their traditional counterparts i.e. metal braces. These are made of medical grade plastic. They are considered as an invisible alternative to braces. They are also easily removable and as a result they are widely popular amongst adults. Now one of the common concerns of people considering invisalign aligners is the possibility of pain during treatment.
Now traditional metal braces have long been associated with excruciating treatment, both through the stress exerted during the movement of alignment. One method of dealing with this has been the use of waxes and gels to stop the pain. They are different from metal. However they are produced from a mould that the orthodontist takes of the patient’s teeth. From this mould a series of aligners is manufactured.
These are made to fit exactly the shape of the patient’s teeth, effectively covering each tooth in a very fine layer of smooth clear plastic. Due to the smooth touch of this soft and the very close fit there should be no slight rough edge on the aligner but this can be quickly and simply smoothed away by the patient with a nail file.
Visible braces teeth are normally tightened within six weeks. It means that in order to incorporate six weeks’ worth of movement significant changes are made at each tightening. The consequences are a lot of pressure upon the teeth causing considerable discomfort.
Invisalign braces can be replaced for a new aligner approximately every two weeks, although some patients are on a weekly rotation. It means that each aligner is able to undertake a smaller movement and therefore put less pressure on alignment. It means that although there are may be some pressure at the start of each aligner it should not be enough to cause actual pain although it may cause some discomfort.
They can be replaced for a new aligner approximately every 2 weeks, though some sufferers are on a weekly turning round. It means that each bracket is able to undertake a smaller movement and therefore put less pressure on the alignment. This means that although there may be some pressure at the start of each aligner it should not be enough to cause actual pain although it may cause some discomfort. This discomfort is easily dealt with a simple over the counter painkiller.
Now most visible braces teeth patients require or attachment to be placed on some of their teeth. These are small blobs of tooth colored substance that help the aligner to grip on alignment that are requiring more complex movements.
Now some patients find that these attachments feel a little uncomfortable against their cheeks whilst eating, though they cannot be felt when the brackets are in place. These aligners are needed to be worn for a minimum of 22 hours a day this does not generally cause a significant problem. Any rough edges on that attachment can quickly be smoothed away by the dentist in their surgery.
