Do you wish there was a way to straighten your teeth without everyone knowing about it? Well, there is. Invisalign offers a non-obtrusive method for straightening teeth that involves the use of plastic aligners that can be conveniently removed at any time.
All that you need is some basic information to help you make the right treatment choice for yourself or a family member.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a system for straightening teeth that uses plastic aligners fitted over the teeth, and periodically swapped out for another set, until treatment is complete. The aligners are made from a comfortable, clear plastic that is virtually undetectable to outside observers.
Benefits of Invisalign Aligners
Aside from the fact that Invisalign is virtually invisible, one of the main advantages of this treatment is that you can remove your aligners whenever you like. Need to take photos? No problem. Need to clean your teeth? Remove your aligners and replace.
Another key selling point about Invisalign is that this treatment does not involve any food restrictions, unlike traditional braces. You simply remove your aligners while you’re eating and replace them when done. Just don’t forget to keep your aligners in your mouth for 22 hours daily to stick to your treatment plan.
Invisalign is also incredibly comfortable. Unlike the sharp wires and brackets used with traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are made from a sleek, plastic material.
Is Invisalign superior to traditional braces?
In many ways, Invisalign is better than traditional braces, offering the following advantages:
- Virtually invisible: Many patients consider the number one advantage of Invisalign to be that their friends, employers, and acquaintances will not be looking at a mouthful of metal whenever they smile or open their mouth.
- Comfortable: Although there is a brief adjustment period, most patients find wearing Invisalign to be much more comfortable than traditional braces.
- Removable: It is incredibly convenient to be able to remove your aligners at any time whenever you need to eat, or clean your teeth.
Advantages of Traditional Braces
One of the main advantages of traditional braces over Invisalign is that traditional braces are normally less expensive.
