There is a lot of hype these days about Invisalign as well as many misconceptions. Invisalign IS an efficient orthodontic treatment for adults and kids that solves most of the orthodontic problems. Invisalign is NOT a purely cosmetic treatment.
As the technology progresses, so does Invisalign treatment. Here are 5 reasons why Invisalign is better than you think compared to braces:
- Increased comfort
Patients using wired braces have more discomfort and pain. With Invisalign the only time you might feel discomfort is when you start wearing a new set of aligners, every 2 weeks. The pressure on your teeth is of a very low degree.
Invisalign aligners are removable and you have the freedom to continue eating a normal, balanced diet. You can also remove the aligners for an important evening out.
Invisalign are almost invisible and it looks as though you are not wearing braces at all. If you feel anxious to wear a “train track” to work especially if you are an adult, then Invisalign is the perfect solution for you.
- Fast treatment
Invisalign treatments are generally faster than traditional braces. What is more fascinating is that since the treatment is designed by a special software, you can see how your teeth will look like at the end of the treatment. As a patient, you can even add modifications to the outcome before your treatment had started.
One more thing: using an Acceledent device, you can half the duration of your Invisalign treatment. The soft pulse technology helps your teeth move safely faster, for example, a treatment of 12 months can be reduced to 6 months.
- Reduced restrictions
One of the biggest downsides to traditional braces are the required bi-monthly visits to the dentist. In our fast-paced world, where people’s lifestyles are directly related to travel, committing to monthly or bi-monthly visits for 1-2 years is virtually impossible.
With Invisalign, you have the freedom to travel extensively and plan your dentists’ visits according to your schedule.
- Hygienic and safe
Oral health is significantly improved with the use of Invisalign aligners, which can be easily removed for cleaning. You will also tend to consume more water as it is the only liquid you can drink while wearing the aligner. Less sugary drinks – healthier teeth.
- Get those few pounds off!
Along with your Invisalign treatment, you can plan a diet as well. As you must remove the aligners for every meal, snaking is naturally reduced. Combine 2 in one, Invisalign treatment and a lite diet, the result will be amazing.
