Enhancing your smile can boost your confidence and even make it easier to care for your teeth. Invisalign is one of the most popular methods to straighten teeth but there are lots of factors to consider. If you are on the fence and are interested in Invisalign, here are five things we think you should know.
1. Results Are Fast
Using Invisalign to straighten your teeth typically offers faster results than traditional orthodontic options. Most patients achieve their desired result in just 6-18 months when using Invisalign. In comparison, it takes an average of 18-36 months to straighten teeth using traditional braces.
2. Fewer Appointments Are Needed
Once you begin the process, your Invisalign trays can be created from 3D scans taken by your dentist. In most cases, patients require just 2 or 3 visits when using Invisalign to straighten their teeth or improve their bite. Although the exact number of appointments will vary from patient to patient, fewer appointments are usually needed for Invisalign treatment than for traditional braces.
If you want to straighten your teeth and spend less time in your dentist’s office, find out if Invisalign is right for you!
3. Invisalign is Subtle and Discreet
Many people avoid visiting their dentist for cosmetic work as they are reluctant to wear visible braces. Despite offering great results, traditional orthodontic treatment may involve wearing visible fixed braces. However, Invisalign offers a much more subtle way of straightening your teeth. The clear plastic trays offer a discreet treatment and expert fitting ensures your Invisalign trays will be practically invisible.
4. Optimal Oral Health Is Possible
When you’re wearing traditional metal braces, it can be difficult to keep your teeth and gums feeling fresh. The wires and brackets used in traditional orthodontic treatment are fixed in place, which means you need to try and brush over, under and around them. Of course, this increases the likelihood of breakages and can lead to an increased need for brace repairs too.
As Invisalign trays are removable, you can simply take them out to brush your teeth and gums. This makes it easier to practice good oral hygiene while receiving orthodontic treatment and ensures your teeth are well protected and clean.
5. Invisalign is Suitable for Most People
Although serious misalignments may require more traditional treatment, Invisalign is a viable option for a wide variety of patients. In fact, you’ll be surprised at how many people are suitable candidates for Invisalign. From resolving minor misalignments to spacing crowded teeth, there are a variety of ways Invisalign can enhance your smile.
