Whereas in the past, the only option you had was to wear traditional metal braces – consisting of wires and brackets – you can now opt for a metal-free option by choosing a clear brace system known as Invisalign.
Whether you have crooked, gappy, unevenly spaced or overlapping teeth, Invisalign offers a versatile clear brace solution to correct your teeth alignment issues.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a teeth straightening system that utilizes invisible, removable aligners made from clear plastic that are much less noticeable than traditional braces. They are designed for patients seeking a straight and beautiful smile without having to wear traditional metal braces.
The breakthrough innovation allows the dentist to deliver a precise treatment plan and customise special aligners (what the clear braces are called) for a completely metal-free teeth-straightening experience!
Benefits of Invisalign
To learn why millions of patients have opted to straighten their teeth using the revolutionary “invisible” aligners, you would have to first discover some of its best-loved features and benefits:
Discreet way to straighten your teeth
One thing is true when it comes to all dental cosmetic procedures. What you want is for others to notice the beautiful results. However, you wouldn’t want them to notice the work-in-progress or for that matter, be privy to the fact that you are getting work done on your teeth! The same applies to your teeth straightening process. Until your teeth have been properly aligned – and look straight and beautiful – there is no reason to draw unnecessary attention to your braces!
This main attraction of Invisalign’s aligners is that they are made from clear plastic material, therefore are a lot less noticeable in your mouth, as compared to conspicuous silver-coloured metal braces. When it comes to choosing between a loud or discreet way of straightening your teeth, the choice is clear.
Fast and effective results
One of the reasons many people avoid orthodontic treatment has to do with the lengthy treatment time. While traditional orthodontic treatments require between 2 -3 years on average to achieve the desired results, Most Invisalign cases take 12 months or less to straighten your teeth.
Note: Treatment time frames vary depending on the individual case and condition of the patient’s teeth.
Comfortable and hygienic
Custom-fitted to your individual set of teeth, Invisalign aligners are gentler on your cheeks, lips and gums. That is due to the use of the clear plastic material and the smooth edge design of the oral appliance.
The aligner – which resembles the sports mouthguard – may also be removed daily. This allows the wearer to eat normally and clean the appliance with greater ease, as compared to metal braces that remain in your teeth throughout the entire orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign aligners also offer the more hygienic option. Fixed metal braces have a tendency of trapping food particles in the crevices between the wires and brackets, which is both a dental and oral hygiene concern. With Invisalign’s removable aligners, patients do not have to avoid eating certain types of foods, fearing they might damage the braces or trap food particles.
Finally, please note that Invisalign isn’t for everyone. That’s why you should consult a dental professional to ascertain whether you would make a suitable candidate.
