If you are considering braces to straighten your teeth, then you should consider giving Invisalign clear aligners a try. Invisalign braces can provide a way to get straight teeth with minimal effort or discomfort.
Invisalign offers a better option for adults and teenagers because they have better appearance. Clear aligners are worn for twenty to twenty-four hours a day, for optimal results. Clear Aligner treatment takes less time than braces, so there's no more inordinate waiting time between orthodontic visits. You can clean your teeth like normal between dental appointments without wearing trays or using cleaning liquids.
Invisalign clear aligners offer a higher level of comfort than braces, which is especially important for adults who brush and floss very little. Furthermore, adults who have severe oral hygiene problems benefit the most from Invisalign. With braces, adult patients can sometimes experience pain from tugging and pulling on the wires, which can cause discomfort and irritation. Adults who use Invisalign are able to maintain their oral hygiene and avoid the potential pain, decay, bad oral hygiene and irritation.
What are the Benefits?
Orthodontic appliances such as Invisalign clear aligners can also provide another significant benefit to adults: the ability to reduce the overall amount of arch lift required to straighten the teeth. Straight teeth allow a patient's smile to look better, which can boost confidence and boost self esteem. Many adults who are embarrassed about the fact that they have crooked, gapped, or misaligned teeth are especially helped by Invisalign by them not having to wear braces for an extended period of time.
Invisible aligners can also be worn in public. Since they do not require metal brackets or wires to hold them in place, patients can maintain their Invisalign treatment even when at work or when out socializing. Patients can look confident and healthy just by dressing themselves in their new aligner. They won't have to worry about unsightly metal brackets showing, which can be embarrassing in and of itself.
Not only are Invisalign aligners easier to wear than traditional braces, but they are also less time consuming than having braces installed. A traditional metal brace can last up to four years. After that time, it must be removed and replaced with a new one. With an Invisalign aligner, you can remove them after two years, recycle the technology, and wear them again for another two years. That's a lot of savings!
