Invisalign is a revolutionary treatment for adults and children with crooked, crowded or otherwise abnormal looking teeth. Clear aligners are basically orthodontic dental devices which are essentially a clear plastic laminate of interlocking plastic strips, worn over the teeth in a continuous process over a specified period of time to gradually realign teeth.Learn more about us at Invisalign
The treatments can either be Invisalign or Veneers. If you go with Invisalign, you will have to wear these aligners directly over your teeth for a specified amount of time each day while you brush and floss your teeth at the same time. The benefits of this treatment include: it is comfortable to wear, it’s not messy to wear, you can wear these for several hours or overnight, and they do not feel like a band on your teeth as they are designed to feel more like a gel. If you prefer a more natural look to your teeth, Veneers can be applied to correct imperfections such as too much wear on the edges of your teeth or spacing issues.
The biggest problem associated with traditional braces is that it’s extremely difficult for a person to maintain the clean and perfect appearance required of them. Furthermore, with traditional braces there can be a number of potential disadvantages which Invisalign does not have. One major disadvantage is the fact that the wearer must remove the aligner at least two times a day to brush and floss their teeth, which can be inconvenient, time-consuming and messy. Another important disadvantage is that Invisalign is more expensive than braces but it does produce faster and better results; however, because it is a more customized treatment process, it also costs slightly more. Invisalign also offers an improved comfort level because the patient has the ability to eat without having to remove their aligner for a full meal.
With Invisalign, you get a chance to avoid all of these disadvantages and have the convenience of wearing these braces at home. There are two main categories of aligners: metal and clear plastic. Metal aligners can be either interwoven or riveted and clear aligners come in either soft or hard material. This allows the person wearing the Invisalign system to adjust the device to any shape of their mouth so that their teeth are in the correct position. However, if you don’t have a lot of money to spend and still want to have a perfect smile, you may prefer the plastic aligners as they are made of plastic and therefore cheaper than the other two aligner options.
