For a long time, kids with teeth alignment or bite issues had to resort to using cumbersome metal braces. These braces were eyesores, had a lot of functional issues, and were expensive. Thankfully, Invisalign has come in recent years as a stable replacement that looks, feels, and works better than its traditional counterparts. Let us see what Invisalign is exactly about and how advantageous it is to you.
Invisalign is the short form of Invisible Aligners. It is a form of orthodontic tool composed of a set of custom-made dental trays used to treat misalignment and bite. Those with overbite, underbite, or crossbite can use Invisalign to permanently fix their problem. The patient will need to wear the dental trays for over 20 hours a day every day for a period prescribed by the dentist.
Invisalign has several advantages over its traditional counterparts. Some of these advantages are the following:
Pain has always been an inevitable side-effect of using metal braces. These braces would often cause cuts that would lead to bleeding in the mouth. And the people who wore them had to deal with it because they had no other options. Now, Invisalign provides an alternate solution that doesn’t cause any pain and keeps feeling good.
People with braces often shy away from being the center of attention as they are conscious about showing them in public. Invisalign, as its name says, is nearly invisible and effectively solves this problem. In fact, it’s hard for others to notice that a person is actually wearing dental trays unless they know about it. Because of this, you can smile more and freely.
Invisalign can be taken off when you need to brush your teeth in the morning, giving you that level of flexibility that braces wouldn’t allow. Also, you don't need to worry about food getting stuck on your teeth or the braces, or going through the discomfort of carefully picking away the food particles.
Bottom line, Invisalign is a godsend for people who have bite issues and need an effective fix that isn’t painful and lets you maintain your natural smile.
