5 Ways Invisalign i7 Provides More Individualized Care
Orthodontic treatment is a big investment in time and money, with most treatments taking between 12 and 24 months or sometimes even longer to see results. If you only have one or two crooked teeth or only a small gap between your two front teeth, these might seem too minor to get braces for. Luckily though you don’t just have to just deal with the slight imperfections if you don’t want to. Invisalign i7 offers you an easy way to fix minor dental problems.
Here are 5 ways Invisalign i7 provides more individualized care:
Pinpoints the problem area
Like other members of the Invisalign family, Invisalign i7 gradually moves teeth into a more aesthetically pleasing position using clear plastic aligners that are almost invisible to the eye. This version, however, just focuses on minor tooth corrections. Instead of getting a mouth full of aligners that you don’t really need, this way your orthodontist can focus on just the problem area. It is also a good option, for people who had previous orthodontic treatment, but their teeth began to move slightly again once it was completed.
Allows for shorter treatment time
One of the benefits of having more individualized care is that your treatment doesn’t have to look like everybody else’ treatment. By focusing on just the minor problem areas, Invisalign i7 will give you results a lot quicker than other techniques will. Instead of wearing braces or aligners for 6 months to two years, you can be done in as little as three months. Combine this with the fact that the aligners are clear and practically invisible, most people will probably not even know you had any orthodontic treatment at all. Just think, instead of a long drawn out process you can have your treatment done quickly and under the radar.
Creates your own treatment plan
Invisalign i7 works for both teenagers and adults and can be tailored to your own individual needs. The orthodontist will use 3D imaging to create a personal treatment plan for you which will allow you to see exactly what to expect during your treatment. You will also be able to see what your smile will look when the treatment is finished. Each set of aligners are also made specifically for your teeth, no one else’s.
Just as effective as longer treatment
So how does Invisalign i7 work? Well, just like with other Invisalign aligners, it puts pressure on specific teeth. You wear each set of aligners for two weeks and then you will be given a new set. Each set of new aligners help gradually move the tooth into the desired position. With Invisalign i7, there are fewer sets of aligners that you will have to switch to, speeding up treatment while still giving you the results you deserve.
Fits easily into your crazy schedule
Life is hectic. You don’t have time for long drawn out orthodontic treatment that requires a lot of maintenance. Invisalign i7 was created with your individual schedule in mind. Invisalign i7 aligners are removable so you can remove them for eating, brushing and flossing which means it will be easier to keep your teeth clean than it is with traditional braces and you don’t have to follow any tough dietary restrictions. You can even take them out if you have an important social occasion or work event coming up. Just make sure you are following your orthodontist’s instructions on how many hours a day you are wearing them. As with other types of Invisalign treatments, it is not going to be as effective if you are not wearing the aligners for enough time each day.
Invisalign aligners are also easy to take care of. Just rinse them each time you take them in and out and make sure you soak them in either a denture solution or use the Invisalign cleaning kit every day.
Other Invisalign options
Invisalign also offers other options than the i7 depending on your need. There is Invisalign full, which is the full set of aligners to fix multiple alignment issues. Most people who need orthodontic treatment either get these or traditional metal braces. This technique will usually take between 12 and 18 months depending on your individual situation and you will probably need attachments to the aligners during treatment and a retainer afterwards to hold your teeth in their new position.
Invisalign also offers aligners that are designed with the teen user in mind. Special features include an indicator for how long you are wearing the aligners to make sure you are wearing them enough each day and a unique design that allows room for the growth of new adult teeth.
Invisalign Lite is the perfect in-between option for you if you have more than one or two teeth that need fixing, but you do not want to go through a full treatment.
The most important thing to remember is that even slight gaps or crooked teeth can impact your oral hygiene. More food particles can get stuck in the gap and crooked teeth are a lot hard to brush and floss. Buildup of bacteria can lead to tooth decay and gum disease so while it might seem like a minor imperfection that you can learn to live with, your crooked bottom front teeth can actually cause a lot of damage down the line.
It is important that you talk to your orthodontist about all the options and what will work best for your particular needs. Why go for a cookie cutter approach when you can find individualized care made just for you? Orthodontic treatment is a major investment so you need to take it seriously and do your research before deciding on one particular type of treatment. If you know you want Invisalign, make sure you choose an orthodontist who specializes in this type of orthodontic treatment. He or she will able to look at your teeth and help you create an individualized treatment plan that will transform your smile just like you have wanted.
