Invisalign: Definition and Benefits
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign, or “invisible aligners,” is yet one of the most innovative treatments for correcting dental problems next to dental braces. With Invisalign, teeth are properly aligned to their respective place using clear guides. As the name suggests, this is almost invisible making it barely noticeable.
Both Invisalign and dental braces or “braces” have a fair share of pros and cons. In this article, you will particularly discover a few benefits of Invisalign that you can also use as a guide on whether it is best for you to consider this treatment the next time you visit your dentist.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
When it comes to the benefits, Invisalign offers a lot including convenience, easy cleaning, less dental appointment, and surprisingly so much more. Let’s take you to a rundown below.
Easier to Clean
Traditional braces are typically tricky to maintain. It can, in fact, get very stubborn especially when you’re having your meal not to mention the hassle it brings while cleaning and maintaining your teeth and brackets.
Quite the contrary, with Invisalign, removing the aligner trays is actually pretty easy. It only takes brushing them gently with toothpaste and water to clean.
Fewer Office Visits
As opposed to the metal braces which require often or regular dental visit only to have your wires or rubber bands retightening, the Invisalign treatment program cuts this process and saves you a lot of time. As a starter for this treatment, you will be given the aligner trays that are good for the current phase and for the several more phases. Getting them upfront allows you to move on to the next phase without having to pay your dentist another visit.
No Food Adjustments and More Comfort
Does it get better and better?
Since the aligners are essentially removable, you can get to eat and drink your favorites the normal manner without experiencing any inconvenience at all. You will also save yourself from any discomfort or pain and scraping against your tongue, cheeks and gums. Thanks to Invisalign.
Like mentioned, Invisalign treatment can get very discrete that it can hide the dental treatment that you are getting. It’s your call whether or not to tell anyone about these aligners.
Safe for Children, Adolescents, and Adults
While Invisalign treatment is safe for all age groups, many dentists still suggest waiting until your child is 13 or 14 to get Invisalign. One factor whether or not to consider this treatment for children of this age group is the responsibility and the way children take care and maintain tray from possible loss. It could be true that age does not guarantee an aligner won’t get lost, but it may be worth to wait anyway.
Fixes Dental Issues
Although dental issues may vary from one person to another, Invisalign can be the best solution for some alignment problems like Crowded Teeth, Crossbite, Gap Teeth, Misaligned Teeth, Open bite, Overbite, and/ or Underbite.
