Dr. Garrett Hayashi of Honolulu, HI, offers his patients with Invisalign, a popular alternative to traditional metal braces that can transform your teeth. Invisalign are made of clear aligners that straighten teeth to beautify your smile and boost your self esteem.
The clear aligners are made of polyurethane plastic, a removable and an almost invisible material. This is a great solution for young adults and older teens who want to skip the metal-braces look but need orthodontic treatment. Invisalign have many advantages. Clear aligners can be removed during special occasions, like interviews, birthdays, weddings, and other important events. The clear aligners are a good hygienic choice. You can remove them when you want to floss or brush, which gives you more accessibility to hard-to-reach areas.
Your Honolulu dentist uses a specialized computer software called CAD/CAM to create custom clear aligners. The trays fit over the top and bottom teeth over the course of nine months. The trays are swapped out every two weeks and need to be worn for about 20 to 22 hours so as to move teeth to their proper position and ensure teeth are properly aligned.
How Invisalign Can Improve Your Smile
- You'll have cleaner teeth and overall healthier oral hygiene. The removable orthodontic appliance helps make cleaning teeth easier.
- Invisalign clear aligners are changed every two weeks. The sequence of aligners apply pressure on crooked teeth and with time teeth move to their position.
- The thin, flexible, and invisible material won't make you feel self conscious while it straightens your teeth over the course of nine months.
- The clear aligners are used as a nightguard to protect teeth from a poor clenching habit, or tooth-grinding problem.
