Invisalign is one of the finest modes of dental treatment to gain a proper structure of teeth. It is an orthodontic treatment that corrects mild to moderate non-alignment. The popularity of using Invisalign has increased at a higher rate and has been touted as the finest and most rapid way to gain a perfect teeth alignment. These transparent straighteners are to be fitted and they will help in correcting the position of teeth and to achieve a beautiful smile.
Traditional braces are clumsier and more unmanageable. Removing them is also a task. On the other hand, removable aligners are easy to wear and remove because they are customized according to the needs of the person.
Removable aligners have an upper hand when it comes to hygiene. They can be removed, unlike braces which can have bits of food stuck that could cause plaque and bacteria to build up. With Invisalign, the person can remove the aligners and follow his normal dental hygiene routine.
Using Invisalign can help solve other dental problems like tooth decay, plaque, loss of teeth, etc. Crooked teeth can also cause sleep apnea.
If you have invisible aligners, you wouldn’t require frequent visits to your dentist. In case you have to, then it wouldn’t be long and intrusive. Since the aligners are planned beforehand, no extra visits will be required.
Having traditional braces bars you to have food that is sticky, crunchy, and hard. On the other hand, Invisalign treatment doesn’t require any such precautions. However, there is a catch: Make sure whenever you eat or drink, your aligners should be in cold water.
Braces take somewhere around 12 to 18 months or maybe more in certain cases. The aligners take approximately one year. They are invisible, so most people would not even notice them. If you don’t wear your aligners properly, it may take more than a year to get the desired shape. Hence, they help in saving a lot of time and don’t require many dentist visits.
