Invisalign® has quickly become a well-known and popular option for straightening teeth discretely. While the treatment is marketed as not using wires or brackets, some patients do require Invisalign® attachments for the treatment to be effective.
What Are Invisalign® Attachments?
Invisalign® attachments are small, tooth-coloured dots of dental bonding material. They’re placed on certain teeth and in particular locations. The attachments can be different shapes, too, depending on their purpose. The attachments are bonded to the front of your teeth, so there’s no drilling or shots needed. And at the end of your treatment, they’re polished off.
Without attachments, some movements may be difficult for the aligners to accomplish. With attachments, the right forces are placed in the right places to move your teeth appropriately. They also allow the aligners to grip the tooth for easier adjustments to your smile.
What You Should Know
Here are a few things you should know about Invisalign® attachments:
1. They’re Almost Invisible
The attachments are tooth-coloured. The position and shape will vary depending on why they are needed. At the end of treatment, they are polished off and retainers are arranged to maintain your final result.
2. They’re Anchors for the Aligners
The attachments are like anchors that help the aligners move your teeth according to your personalised treatment plan. They click into your aligners to make the trays more secure and help your bite move into the desired position.
Attachments have the potential to help people with more complicated cases become candidates for Invisalign® treatment.
3. A Snug Fit for your Aligners
The attachments will change how your aligners feel. They help aligners fit more snugly, which can make it a little harder to remove your aligners for brushing and eating. But, while it may take a little more patience at first, remember that if you have Invisalign® attachments, they are necessary for the treatment plan devised by your orthodontist and will ensure your treatment is efficient and precise.
