A nice, lovely grin may do wonders for your confidence. However, a lot of people don’t want to put up with the discomfort of wearing conventional metal braces. The advantages of using Invisalign to straighten your teeth should be taken into account if you’re searching for an alternative solution.
This procedure is a modern one that is ideal for an active lifestyle and works just as well as conventional orthodontics. Use clear aligners that gradually realign your teeth to avoid the “metal mouth.” Because these aligners are removeable, you can eat, speak, and clean your teeth without having to wear a cumbersome orthodontic appliance.
Invisalign and braces can both be used to straighten teeth that are crooked, gapped, crowded, or misaligned. However, wearing metal braces while undergoing treatment might be painful. In addition to making it difficult to consume your favorite meals, braces can make it tough to brush and floss because of the brackets’ obstruction. In addition, a lot of people are embarrassed by the visual impact of having metal in their mouths.
In comparison, Invisalign can offer the same benefits of braces by creating the straight smile that you desire. But, you can skip the discomfort of having metal brackets attached to your teeth. Patients often agree that Invisalign is more comfortable compared to traditional braces. Plus, Invisalign could potentially speed up the treatment time.
The Invisalign treatment uses a 3D image to map out the desired movements of the teeth. Then, custom-made aligners are created in a series, to gently move the teeth into a straight, beautiful line. These aligners are created using BPA-free plastic that is clear, and they are designed to fit your teeth with exactness.
You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving onto the next set. It is important that you follow the order of aligners to ensure optimal movement of the teeth. For the best results, make sure that you are wearing the aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours each day. Gradually, your teeth will shift, creating the beautiful smile that you desire.
