Invisalign, better known as invisible braces, has revolutionized the world of orthodontics in the past few years. These plastic fittings are an excellent substitute for traditional metal or ceramic braces because they are much more cosmetically favorable.
What Is Invisalign Made Of?
Invisible braces are clear, transparent plastic fittings that are highly flexible and provide comparable support to your teeth as any standard braces. They are FDA-approved, safe, and highly effective.
How Can I Get Invisalign?
After our orthodontists examine your teeth, impressions of your teeth will be taken to build custom-made invisible braces at our laboratories. These are then fitted for a certain period and adjusted serially after every few months.
Gradually, Invisalign will help restore the symmetry of your teeth exactly how conventional braces would.
How Do I Know If I Need Invisalign?
Whether you need orthodontic treatment will depend after our dentists have taken a careful history and examination of your oral cavity. You might require orthodontic treatment if you have problems like overcrowded teeth, ill-fitting teeth with too many gaps in between, and problems with biting.
Alignment of your teeth can be done in multiple ways, through metal braces, ceramic braces, or Invisalign – the choice is yours.
Why Is Invisalign Better Than Traditional Metal Braces?
The most significant advantage of invisible braces is their appearance and how they merge with your natural teeth. Invisalign is invisible; other people may not even know you have braces.
The effectiveness of invisible braces in restoring the symmetry of teeth is more or less the same as any other braces option.
Are There Any Drawbacks of Invisalign?
Perhaps the biggest drawback of invisible braces is the price point. Compared to metal braces, invisible braces are more costly; however, they may be more cost-effective in the long run.
Care for Invisalign
Invisalign needs to be managed and cared for as any other braces. This means you should pay close attention to your oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing regularly will help prolong the longevity of these braces.
