We continue to publish Sandra's feedbacks and opinions on using eon Aligner, commonly known to people as invisible braces.
I have been undergoing aligner treatment for just over 5 months, and I am really pleased with the results so far! I would like to cover a few questions that could help you while considering teeth straightening with aligner treatment, which is one of the most advanced types of orthodontic braces nowadays.
Patience and commitment! Your dentist will bring it up often; you will have to wear your aligners for 20 – 22 hours a day, and although there will be times where you get tired of it, you will have to keep them on. Make up your mind and image what your smile is going to be at the end of the journey, only sticking to the plan will help you to succeed.
The proverb says no pain, no gain. To get these perfect teeth you will have to endure a bit of discomfort. Dental aligners essentially force teeth to move; wearing a new aligner every 14 days means you have an adjustment period of about 48 hours until the discomfort subsides. The good news is the further you progress in your treatment, the less notable this discomfort becomes as your teeth move closer to their target position. And if you are wondering about how often one changes aligners, it’s usually two weeks.
Well, practically none of my friends or co-workers noticed I was wearing aligners. The only people who did notice were my husband and son. You can always have a short break before the meal, go to the bathroom, eat your food, then come back to the bathroom again to brush your teeth and wear your aligner again. It's easy and don't take a lot of time, just several days to accustom.
Attachments are small ‘bits’ that help aligners make tough movements, and they are so tempting to play with! I would find myself rolling my tongue over them at work when I was concentrating. I didn’t think much of it, but then my orthodontist had to replace one of the attachments because of prodding it so often. It's not necessarily will be your case, only your doctor can tell you how many aligners you will need, and if your orthodontic treatment requires the attachments, or not.
Some dental cases may require IPR, which is essentially filing the tooth enamel to make space for some of the planned movements for your teeth straightening. Sounds terrifying? Perhaps, but it isn’t as bad as it sounds, especially if you have a good orthodontist. And I'm repeating again, it's your dentist who only can make conclusions on your particular case.
Not all dentists are working at the same high level, therefore many orthodontists might be new to aligner technology. I found my dentist through the Eon Aligner website. I filled the form online, and one of their staff members gave me a call and clarified my initial fears and doubts before giving me the contact list of the experienced doctors who worked in my area. Knowing what I know now, I would always choose a dentist who has a ton of aligner experience, and who has probably treated a wide variety of cases, over one that charges less.
