Invisalign clear braces correct tooth alignment problems without compromising dental aesthetics.
Genetics do not favor everyone. Some people have naturally white, perfectly aligned teeth, while others are not so lucky.
Crooked teeth and crowded teeth are a problem that affects children, youth, and adults alike. Incorrect alignment of teeth can make a dental hygiene routine more complicated. It would be more difficult for the toothbrush to reach the places where the teeth are closer together.
In addition to the obvious dental health problems that they can cause, crooked teeth also significantly affect a person’s aesthetics. People with crooked teeth do not feel confident smiling, and this affects their self-esteem.
Dental alignment problems are corrected through the use of braces. Conventional braces work effectively but can have drawbacks. Being made of metal, they can be uncomfortable and even cause canker sores inside the mouth. Also, many people do not feel comfortable wearing metal braces because they are very visible.
There are other alternatives to metal braces, such as porcelain braces or sapphire braces. These offer the same benefits as conventional braces but are less visible on the tooth surface as they can be tooth-colored.
Thanks to advances in technology (and a company called “Align Tech”); there is now an alternative to conventional braces that offer the same benefits without the unpleasant disadvantages: Invisalign clear braces.
What Are Invisalign Clear Braces?
Invisalign is an orthodontic technique that allows for the correction of the teeth’s position by using transparent braces, which are made to measure according to each patient’s needs.
These aligners are made of very resistant and transparent plastic, which makes them practically invisible. Also, the Invisalign braces are removable, which is very convenient.
How to Do Invisalign Braces Work?
Invisalign clear braces work like any other orthodontic treatment: applying light pressure on each tooth to move them to the desired position.
The difference between conventional braces and Invisalign aligners is that these are custom-made for each patient using 3D technology. Besides, thanks to specialized software, the treatment is planned in detail. This software also allows planning each tooth’s movement step by step, from the beginning to the end of the treatment.
The aligners should be worn for approximately 22 hours per day to guarantee the expected results. Every week the dentist will give the patient new aligners to replace the old ones and thus continue with the treatment.
How Long Does the Invisalign Treatment Last?
The duration will depend on the dental condition and the needs of each patient. In most cases, the treatment duration is the same as conventional braces, approximately 1 or 2 years.
What Are the Advantages of Invisalign Aligners?
Being made of plastic, these would not damage the inside of the mouth as metal braces would. Invisalign braces can be removed when eating or brushing your teeth; this makes it the most hygienic orthodontic treatment. Dental hygiene will be much simpler than if you were using conventional fixed braces.
But without a doubt, the most important thing, and what makes transparent Invisalign braces the wonder of orthodontic treatments, is that they are practically invisible! Being made of transparent plastic, no one will notice that you are wearing them.
