Invisalign braces are orthodontic aligners that work like traditional metal braces. But instead of linking brackets using wires, they correct teeth alignment with clear plastic retainers. They are the best option for people who want to fix their teeth discreetly as these braces are inconspicuous. Unless they look closer, people won’t notice them.
Invisalign braces can fix overbites, underbites, overcrowding, and gaps just like traditional braces. Your dentist will fit you for several invisible aligners that you then use one at a time, progressing to the next aligner throughout your program.
While Invisalign braces are generally more expensive than metal and ceramic braces, they are worth investing in. They offer benefits that you cannot experience in traditional braces such as the following:
The best thing about Invisalign braces is that they are removable. You can eat any food that you want without restriction or without worrying about them getting stuck in the brackets.
Although results vary from person to person, most adults usually get a perfectly aligned set of teeth after 12 months of Invisalign treatment. Patients visit their dentists less often, and they observe significant improvements within the first three months of wearing these clear aligners.
Convenient and more hygienic
With Invisalign braces, there is no need to go through the pain and irritation because of metal brackets. Brushing and flossing will also be convenient since your braces are removable. There will be no need for special toothbrushes or dental kits. Of course, you must clean your trays every day by rinsing and soaking them in dental cleaners, but other than this, you have an easy time maintaining your oral hygiene.
Before choosing Invisalign braces, ask a qualified dentist if this is the best option for you. A professional dentist will be able to thoroughly evaluate your case and assess if you are a good candidate.
