The bands will stay in place for one week to create a space between mouth for the permanent molar bands. Later, the molar bands, brackets and wires will be put in place. For the first couple of days, your mouth may feel tender to bite and your jaw aches; this is because of the pressure of the brace, taking a headache tablet will help. If the discomfort lasts longer than a few days, book an appointment with Dental-Aesthetics for adjustments.

It usually takes between 12-15 months but will vary according to how complex the case is. Dental-Aesthetics will provide you with a time frame. However, breakages of the brace will add time to it.

Health Benefits of Straight Teeth
Swollen, red gums can often be the result of having a tooth that is crowded or too widely spaced. Unfortunately, these are also signs of periodontal disease. When the mouth is properly aligned, it helps the gums fit more securely, allowing for the strongest and healthiest defense against potential periodontal problems. That’s where Invisalign comes in. Clear aligners gradually begin to move into the proper position. One of the biggest challenges of having braces is removing all the food that gets trapped in the brackets and wires. This can often lead to plaque buildup and eventually tooth decay. With Invisalign, the aligners are removable, so it’s easy to continue brushing and flossing your teeth the way you normally do.
Think of your teeth as a window to the health of your body. How they look to others when you smile – say a lot about your overall health. If you’re taking good care of both, you’re probably taking good care of yourself. Tooth decay and gum diseases are caused by bacteria. Left untreated, they can cause mouth sores, tender or bleeding gums, bad breath, and possible tooth loss. Studies by the American Dental Association have shown that oral infections can also lead to other more serious ailments including heart diseases and diabetes. Invisalign aligners make daily oral hygiene easier, thus reducing the risk of possible problems. And correctly aligned teeth can also alleviate the issues that can be caused by an improper bite, speech or chewing difficulties, jaw problems, and increased wear on the tooth enamel. Invisalign effectively addresses all of these orthodontal issues, so you’ll have the confidence of a great smile.
