To many people, Invisalign is the next evolution in dental brace technology. Though it accomplishes the same goal of straightening your teeth, its appearance and convenience feel like a new development in the world of orthodontics. Unlike traditional braces, which are tightened across your teeth, Invisalign clear aligners are inserted like a mouthguard. You can remove them while eating, drinking, and brushing your teeth for a more comfortable day-to-day routine.
Furthermore, as their name suggests, Invisalign clear aligners are designed to have an aesthetically pleasing “invisible” appearance that many users will prefer over the non-subtle appearance of traditional metal braces. This may be Invisalign’s most prominent selling point. Many customers will want the benefits of dental braces without the undesirable appearance of metal brackets around their teeth.
Despite Invisalign’s benefits, not everyone is suited for clear aligners. Invisalign usually costs more money than traditional braces, and require more maintenance. Also, if you don’t have the discipline to keep Invisalign aligners in your mouth for at least 20 hours a day, it might not be ideal for you. Lastly, certain types of tooth misalignment, such as rotation, cannot be fixed by Invsalign’s design. If you’re considering using Invisalign, you’ll need to set up an appointment with your orthodontist first before committing to this new method of treatment.
