The Truth About Invisalign and How It Can Straighten Your Teeth
Invisalign has grown in popularity because of the benefits that it offers, and a lot of people are wondering what it can really do for them.
There are a few different types of aligners that exist for straightening the teeth but opting for Invisalign has become more popular because of the benefits that come along with it. In this article, we will explain how Invisalign can straighten a person’s teeth. It can be great to know what these benefits are, especially for those who are considering it. Read more below!
These clear dental aligners allow for a person to straighten their teeth without having to wear heavy metal brackets and wires on their teeth. Traditional braces can be bulky and cumbersome and people that are curious about other options should think about Invisalign because they aren’t bulky and they are practically invisible.
While Invisalign is seemingly easy to wear, it is important to remember that the treatment process depends heavily on the patient. And because the aligners are removable, people often find themselves forgetting to put them back in after eating. Others may believe that not wearing them for a few hours won’t change anything but this is not the case. However, in order for the process to go by quickly and efficiently, it is best that a person keeps their Invisalign in at all times - aside from eating or brushing.
Clear and discreet
More people consider Invisalign because the traditional straightening process can make someone self-conscious. With the use of Invisalign, nobody can even tell that someone is wearing the aligner - thus making it a discreet method of treatment.
Being able to wear something to straighten the teeth that nobody else can see will greatly help increase the likelihood that one will want to have the straightening treatment done. These clear aligners allow for treatment to be done and nobody ever has to know.
The straightening process
Invisalign can often provide a more speedy turn around time. They have been said to be more effective because Invisalign is one whole appliance, meaning that all of the teeth shift together. Traditional braces allow for each individual bracket to work one tooth at a time, thus causing a shift over time. Invisalign is more appealing because it allows for the teeth to shift as a whole rather than individually.
Because the teeth can shift together with Invisalign, the process of straightening is usually achieved quicker than that of traditional braces. Some people may not have to wear Invisalign for as long because their teeth may achieve straightness sooner since all of the teeth are moving together.
