In recent years, a dental aligner tool called Invisalign has emerged as an alternative to conventional braces and is proving to be hugely beneficial for people. Short form for invisible aligners, this dental implant can solve all bite-related issues as long as you wear them for 20-22 hours every day for a set period prescribed by your orthodontist. It comes at a marginally higher cost compared to metal braces but has many advantages. In this blog, we will take a look at a few of them:
As the old adage goes, you always need to live through pain to gain the desired outcome. That's not true at all, at least in the case of Invisalign users. Using metal braces meant cuts and bruises on a regular basis as they would often slice through your inner cheeks from time to time. With Invisalign, you can get rid of all those issues as it's basically like a cover for your teeth, and there is no metal wire or brackets involved.
A smile is one of the most defining parts of a human being. Yet many with braces refuse to embrace it in fear of being embarrassed by the sheer thought of bearing their brace-ridden teeth. With Invisalign, you can brush that worry away as nobody can really tell whether you're actually wearing one or not.
While braces are a reminder of the old world, Invisalign is a proponent of the new. Steeped in top-notch technology, every step involved in designing Invisalign is from the present. Your orthodontist will first take a 3D scan of your gums before designing Invisalign trays to maximize comfort while maximizing efficiency.
A common complaint with braces is that food would often get stuck in between, and your teeth could rarely get rid of them even with regular brushing. On the other hand, using Invisalign trays offers you the flexibility to brush your teeth as usual and then put them back on.
Invisalign is a new-age and efficient solution to an old problem that ensures the correction of bite issues while being aesthetically pleasing.
