What is Invisalign®?

Traditional metal braces cause a great deal of discomfort. As an amazing alternative to these metal braces, Invisalign is a great option to help people get their desired smile without any discomfort or embarrassment. Invisalign® has been used for over a decade now and has helped numerous users get their desired smile.

How is Invisalign® more effective than traditional metal braces?

The first and foremost thing that makes Invisalign® better than metal braces is that it’s clear and transparent. It’s almost impossible to notice that you’re even wearing any aligner. Besides, unlike metal braces, it doesn’t hurt to chew or talk with Invisalign® braces. It offers complete comfort and are easy to wear, remove, clean and maintain.

What does Invisalign® do?

Invisalign® braces can be used to treat and align multiple oral structures such as:

  • Crowding
  • Spacing
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gap in teeth
  • Overlapping teeth

Moreover, at the end of the treatment, users even get a brighter smile since we even include whitening with Invisalign® aligners.

Maintenance of Invisalign®:

As mentioned earlier, Invisalign® are easy to wear, remove and clean. For the effective treatment of Invisalign®, the aligners need to be changed at a regular interval which depends upon the teeth structure as well as the progression of the teeth in the desired position. Moreover, the teeth cleaning that occurs during the treatment prevents any decay, bacteria or cavities. With traditional metal braces the users are more prone to such problems.

Patients get a new set of aligners every eight weeks depending upon the changes in the position of the teeth. It also helps in keeping the teeth clean.

Teens and Invisalign®:

Although Invisalign® are clear and easy-to-use aligners, a few teenage patients tend to not wear them for all the times they’re needed. For best results, it must be worn during the time prescribed. An advantage of Invisalign® is that it comes with a blue indicator tab that will notify the teens and the parents when the aligners are worn as well as when it’s time to change them. This indicator informs whether the teen is wearing them regularly or not.
