If you wish to straighten and enhance your smile, then Invisalign could be the answer you're looking for!
On the market today, there are many different options of Orthodontics, however, Invisalign is revolutionary in the way that their technology works to permanently straighten your teeth.
Invisalign uses a series of clear, customized and removable plastic trays called aligners, which are made to move the teeth in small steps until the correct position is reached. These aligners are custom made for you based on a 3D scan of your teeth and are virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.
With Invisalign, you can say goodbye to wires and brackets for good!
The Advantages of Invisalign
So why should you choose Invisalign over other Orthodontic treatments? Here is a list of the 6 main advantages of Invisalign to help you decide.
1. Nearly invisible appearance
The best feature of Invisalign is that the aligners are completely clear and virtually invisible. Therefore it's suitable for everyone from a corporate executive to a teenager, who doesn’t want others to know they are wearing aligners or undergoing Orthodontic treatment.
2. Comfortable to wear
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is known to be less painful with most patients experiencing only slight pressure during the first few days of their new aligners. Invisalign aligners are made with a special plastic that is contoured to your teeth with no sharp edges, so unlike braces, you could have the wire sticking out and hurting your cheeks and lips.
3. No food restrictions
Since Invisalign aligners are completely removable, there are no food restrictions, unlike braces where you are restricted from eating sticky or hard foods such as carrots, nuts since you can break the bracket.
4. Brush and floss with ease
Brushing and flossing have never been easier. All you have to do is remove your aligners and go! With nothing permanently placed on your teeth to worry about, you can brush and floss as you did before starting your treatment.
5. Fewer visits to the Orthodontist
With Invisalign, there are hardly any emergencies, unlike braces where you could possibly break a bracket or have the wires sticking out forcing you to visit the clinic. This means fewer visits to the Orthodontist.
How to Choose an Invisalign Provider
Invisalign is a commercial company that offers the product to any dentist who undergoes a 1-day certification. Unfortunately, General Dentists are not trained to correct the bite or treat complex malocclusions of the teeth, unlike Orthodontists who are specialists and have undergone 3 years of specialized training.
This is why it’s so important that you get your treatment done only with an Invisalign Certified Specialist Orthodontist who will not just align your teeth but will also correct an overbite or other problems to ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy and the results are stable.
