Top 5 Benefits of Invisalign over Braces
Orthodontic problems increase the risk of dental caries, gum diseases and affect your facial profile. You may have low self-esteem due to crooked and misaligned teeth. Do you hide your teeth behind your lips due to the gap between your front teeth? Do you want to improve your facial aesthetics? These issues can be corrected by orthodontic treatment to give you a dazzling smile.
You don't want to wear metal braces for ages and avoid your favorite dishes. Many people refrain from getting themselves perfectly aligned teeth because of these concerns. However, you will be happy to know that you can achieve the smile of your dreams without metal braces with the advanced system - Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are a set of clear, virtually invisible, custom-made aligners that completely fit your teeth. They are made of a special ‘SmartTrack’ material that gently moves your teeth to the desired position.
Dr. Aileen Trivedi will evaluate if you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign after a thorough clinical examination and a series of X-rays. We will also show you a virtual representation of what you can expect during and after the Invisalign treatment.
You will have to wear the aligners for the prescribed amount of time and follow all the instructions. You will receive a new set of aligners at regular intervals, usually after every two weeks. At the end of the treatment, you will get retainers to maintain the teeth in proper alignment and to avoid relapse.
What are the advantages of Invisalign over traditional braces?
1. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible.
With traditional braces, you may hesitate to go to social events or business meetings due to the unattractive chunks of metal. That will not be the case with Invisalign! Invisalign are clear aligners made from a special BPA-free resin. No one will recognize that you are undergoing an orthodontic treatment except you and your dentist. The aligners are virtually invisible, and so they are also called ‘invisible braces.’
2. Invisalign solves a broad range of orthodontic problems.
Invisalign clear aligners can be used for the correction of crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, rotation of teeth, open bite, overbite and a variety of other orthodontic problems. Dr. Trivedi will always advise you the correct treatment option after a thorough check-up. Moreover, you know what to expect at each stage of the treatment with Invisalign aligners. The treatment plan is computerized, and you can get the benefits of the technology.
3. There is no diet restriction.
You need to follow a strict diet during treatment with metal braces. Moreover, food particles easily get stuck around the metal wires, and it may be difficult to maintain good oral hygiene. The risk of dental caries and gum problems is also increased. You need to use special cleaning instruments with traditional braces. Again, this is not the case with the help of Invisalign! You can continue eating, brushing, and flossing like you did before the treatment. The aligners are removable, and you can enjoy your favorite foods. Invisalign aligners benefit your dental health as they are easy to clean.
4. Invisalign is more comfortable than traditional braces.
Metal braces may damage the teeth as they are bonded to the tooth surface. Moreover, the sharp edges of the metal wires and brackets can often cause tissue injury. Bleeding due to tissue lacerations and painful sores are common during treatment with traditional braces. The chances of such events are negligible with Invisalign. The aligners are custom-made. The soft resin material snugly fits your teeth, moving them little by little over a period of time.
5. The total treatment time is short.
The total treatment with Invisalign lasts approximately 12-18 months. Quite less than 24-36 months which is the treatment duration with metal braces. Moreover, you need to visit the dental clinic only once in every six weeks during the Invisalign therapy. The treatment is faster, and the number of dental trips is less with Invisalign. Win-Win!
