In comparison to braces, Invisalign is relatively new. However, there is a long list of people who have used it to treat their crooked teeth and experienced excellent results. Some of these
individuals share their experiences with the world. While most of the experiences shared are positive, apart from a few (this is expected), one phrase keeps popping up, and that’s ‘I wish I knew.’ There is always a list of items people who have had Invisalign treatment wish they knew beforehand. In this piece, we shall go through some of these things to help keep you from adding to the statistic.
It is difficult to change orthodontists
The first step to embarking on the challenging journey of straightening teeth is to choose the best cosmetic dentist or orthodontist. Generally, the cosmetic dentist you choose will attend to your case until your treatment is complete. The orthodontist will keep track of your progress and change the Invisalign in Lambton County as often as is required for the successful correction of your dental structure.
So what happens when you move to a new county and cannot make the visit to your regular orthodontist? Does the treatment stop? Well, it shouldn’t. If it does, the progress made might be undone. Your best bet is choosing another orthodontist to work with. But, rest assured this
will not be an easy feat. And, when you eventually land a replacement, your treatment will have already been affected, meaning it will take slightly longer than anticipated.
As such, before starting the treatment, ensure you do not intend to move to a faraway land anytime soon. And, in the event you will move, you should first move and then embark on the treatment.
You need to wear them all the time
Yes, literally all the time. You do not have the luxury of taking them off during the weekend or when you sleep or while attending a party. As a matter of fact, you are required to have them on for 22 hours per day, at the very least. The 2-hour difference is provided to allow you time to
eat, drink and clean your teeth and the Invisalign, as well.
Unlike traditional braces, which are designed to be permanent, hence, a reduced temptation to remove them, with Invisalign in Lambton County, the responsibility of fighting the temptation
lies with you, the wearer.
You could end up spending more than you initially budgeted for
When you start the treatment, the orthodontist will provide you with a projection of how long your teeth need to be aligned and an estimate of how much it will cost you. However, bear in mind that these are just projections and estimates only.
Depending on your diligence of having the Invisalign on during the treatment period and how often you went for replacements and several other factors, your teeth may take longer to align, which translates to you spending more cash to achieve your desired smile.
That said, the above piece is not designed to discourage you from getting Invisalign treatment. On the contrary, it is to ensure you are well-informed and know exactly what to expect when
you start on the project.
