Braces have been successful for many years. However, there are a lot of inconveniences that come with braces. This prompted the creation of Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign is great and effective at replacing missing teeth while avoiding all the inconveniences of braces.
The idea behind teeth straightening devices like braces and Invisalign aligners is that they change the position of teeth. They’re rigid, so they shift the way teeth line up in the mouth gradually until they become straightened. Teeth straightening has to be done gradually to avoid damaging teeth or breaking them. That’s why these devices are used for long periods.
Studies have shown that Invisalign clear aligners are just as effective as braces at straightening teeth. The changes made by Invisalign aligners are gradual, so they cause less discomfort too.
The first advantage of Invisalign is a cosmetic one. Braces are made of metal, so they’re easy to spot. Invisalign clear aligners are nearly invisible. People who see you won’t be able to tell that you have anything over your teeth. The aligners have smooth surfaces, so they don’t injure or traumatize the inside of your mouth either.
Another great advantage is that you can take your Invisalign aligners off. We recommend removing them when you eat and clean your teeth. Being able to take them off also means you can rinse them to keep them clean and fresh. We’ll let you know how often you can take off your aligners. Removing them too frequently will extend your treatment time.
