Orthodontics is becoming easier for dentists, orthodontists, and patients everywhere. Thanks to Invisalign, you’ll look better, take better care of your health and spend less time to straighten your teeth than you would with braces. Invisalign has slowly gained popularity since its patent in 1997.
Would you like to know more about what Invisalign is? This revolutionary new orthodontic treatment is composed of custom-made thermoplastic trays created specifically to straighten your teeth and bite. Invisalign takes an estimate of only six to eighteen months to work, as opposed to an average of two years with braces. These aligners’ clarity makes the wearers’ teeth far more aesthetically pleasing. They’re also easy to remove while eating or brushing your teeth, promoting better oral health as well as freedom in food choices.
Be aware, however, that some dental issues can only be corrected through braces. These include bridgework, teeth that need to move vertically, back tooth bite issues, or canine-premolar issues. You might also consider braces if you know that you or your child would not likely have the discipline to keep the Invisalign trays in for 22 hours or more every day.
