Your Guide to Invisalign
What is Invisalign
Invisalign has quickly become one of the most popular options for getting the smile of your dreams. This treatment involves a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually shift your teeth over some time. Invisalign offers a more aesthetically pleasing option for straightening your teeth when compared to traditional metal braces. Lets learn more about this treatment below.
Pros of Invisalign
The aligners are virtually invisible
These custom made clear aligners are nearly undetectable when worn. This is a huge benefit for those people who do not want to draw attention to their teeth by wearing traditional metal braces. The aligners are also easy to take out, making them a great choice for anyone who wants to improve their smile without sacrificing looks, diet, or hygiene.
The aligners are more comfortable
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners are made from customized clear plastic aligners. These aligners fit snugly to your teeth and make treatment much more comfortable over the course of the alignment process. Traditional metal braces can sometimes cause irritations when wires and brackets rub against the gums and mouth.
More control of hygiene
Since the aligners are removable, patients are in control of when they are taken off, allowing them to easily brush their teeth, floss, and practice proper oral hygiene. Invisalign also allows its users to enjoy a wider selection of foods since there are no restrictive wires or brackets that can get in the way of chewing.
Cons of Invisalign
While prices vary based on the specific treatment needed and the provider, braces can sometimes cost less than Invisalign. This will all depend on your treatment plan so it’s always best to speak with your dentist in Miami to understand all of your options.
May not be suitable for all types of tooth misalignment.
Invisalign is most effective for minor to moderate issues, such as gaps between the teeth or mildly crooked teeth. For more severe misalignments or bite problems, traditional braces may be a better option. Speak with your dentist today to get clarity.
Since Invisalign aligners used are nearly invisible, this type of treatment is ideal for anyone looking to improve their smile without wearing metal braces. The clear aligners also have less friction on your mouth and can be easily removed for activities like eating and brushing teeth.
Long term benefits
Once treatment is completed, your dentist will typically provide you with a post treatment plan so that your teeth stay aligned for the long run.
