Invisalign is a great option for patients who want a discreet orthodontic treatment. It uses a series of clear aligners that are worn over the teeth to gradually shift them into the correct position. There are various advantages of wearing Invisalign aligners, a few of which have been listed below.
Invisalign treatment is virtually invisible. Invisalign clear aligner trays are made out of smooth, clear plastic that is virtually invisible when worn. This is especially important when attending important events like weddings or graduations when the patients can remove the aligners. These trays are designed to be worn for 22 hours a day and are mostly removed when eating, brushing, and flossing.
Unlike traditional braces, you can remove the Invisalign aligners when you eat. This allows you to enjoy your favorite foods without restriction.
Your aligners will be custom-made to fit your teeth. They’ll fit snugly over your teeth, so you don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in metal brackets and wires.
The aligners are removable. That means you can take them out to eat and to clean your teeth. This allows for easy maintenance. You can brush and floss your teeth as you normally would before reinserting your appliance. This makes the Invisalign treatment ideal for patients with orthodontic relapse.
Invisalign is a fast way to straighten your teeth. The system involves a series of removable aligners. Each aligner moves your teeth closer to their ideal position. Invisalign allows you to avoid uncomfortable dental impressions, so you won’t need to have your teeth scanned at each check-up. You can switch aligners every two weeks. Invisalign treatment time is about one year on average.
Invisalign clear aligners are custom-made to fit your mouth. That means you don’t have to change your diet to accommodate your orthodontic treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing your teeth is easier with invisalign than it is with traditional braces.
