Invisalign – How it Works and Key Benefits
Want straight teeth without the discomfort of wearing braces? That’s where Invisalign comes in. Invisalign is the brand name for clear aligners, a next-generation teeth straightener.
Learn how Invisalign straightens teeth that are crooked, have uneven gaps, are too crowded or are biting incorrectly.
Why Use Invisalign?
Some people consider it cute, but perhaps that’s not a look you want to carry with you forever. If your teeth have grown crooked or you have an overbite that is affecting how you eat, talk, and feel, Invisalign is the removable clear aligner to fix what you don’t necessarily like about your teeth alignment.
If your misaligned teeth make you feel self-conscious, cosmetic dentistry will give you something to smile about. Ask your private dental clinic what aligners could do for you.
Who Uses Invisalign?
Everybody uses Invisalign, both children and adults. It’s a popular option to fix teeth alignment, because it’s not as visible as wearing braces.
One group who especially use Invisalign are those who used to wear braces, but then didn’t maintain their teeth because they weren’t diligent in wearing the retainer. As the position of the teeth shuffled again without the retainer, Invisalign is an effective option to reset the teeth back into the ideal position.
How Invisalign Works
Made of flexible plastic, it can fit snugly over the teeth, and gradually mould to fit the set of your teeth. The aligners are worn all the time apart from when you are eating, drinking, and brushing your teeth.
You may have to wear the aligners for 3 to 18 months, as the teeth adjust their position in your mouth.
Comfortable and Convenient
Invisalign offers a range of benefits over braces. Though it is subjective, Invisalign is widely accepted to be more comfortable than bulky braces, as the metal rubs up against the soft tissues in the mouth. Invisalign, being made of soft, thin plastic, is less irritating. It is also less disruptive to eating hard or chewy foods.
In addition, Invisalign avoids the painful, frequent process of having the wires tightened. Instead, the plastic aligners can be changed at home, which is both painless and offers the convenience of not having to book an orthodontist appointment.
Fast and Discreet
Invisalign needs less time than braces to be effective. During this time, it maintains a discrete profile, as the clear plastic isn’t as disruptive or visible as bulky metal braces in your mouth.
