If you are also looking for orthodontic treatments to straighten your teeth, Invisalign is an ideal option for you. These are clear alignment trays made of plastic that gently push your teeth to their correct orthodontic positions. Invisalign is gaining popularity nowadays due to its many advantages and magnificent results. For anyone in need of orthodontic treatment, Invisalign is a game-changer.
Here are some reasons to invest in Invisalign:
One of the most appealing aspects of Invisalign is that it does not impose any dietary limitations. Unlike other traditional methods of aligning your teeth that restrict you from eating certain foods, Invisalign gives you the freedom to eat anything you like. However, you will still have to avoid hard or sticky food items. You must never forget to remove your trays beforehand.
Many adults and teenagers are concerned about visible metal braces or any other orthodontic device in their mouth while smiling or talking. Since Invisalign is made from clear plastic material, it is almost unnoticeable. Therefore you can wear them without worrying about the way you look. Also, it looks almost like a mouth guard that athletes wear, so no one will ever notice that you are wearing an orthodontic device.
When traditional metal braces are removed, many patients are confronted with an unpleasant surprise: discoloration on their teeth. They could also develop cavities or gingivitis, which is a precursor to gum disease. This happens because cleaning your teeth with braces on is very difficult. Proper brushing and flossing are not impossible, but it requires time and patience. With Invisalign, cleaning is effortless since you can take your alignment trays off and brush and floss like you usually would. Your trays can also be cleaned using a soft bristle brush or cleaning solution that is specially formulated to disinfect Invisalign.
Invisalign requires fewer visits to the dental office. There are no “routine adjustments” or “emergency visits” with Invisalign, as you can simply switch to the new set of trays at home. Also, the treatment period of Invisalign is shorter than braces. Where braces can take between 2 to 3 years to correct your teeth, Invisalign takes at most a year and a half to straighten your teeth.
In contrast to metal brackets, the aligners are composed of smooth plastic that fits securely against the teeth. There are no wires or brackets present that poke your cheekbones or soft tissue, and there are no uncomfortable wire tightening sessions every four weeks. Invisalign also saves you from dental emergencies such as broken brackets or wires.
