More than ever, people have been looking for ways to get the perfect smile; one that does not include crooked teeth or an overcrowded mouth. There are a few different corrective options available today to get these dental problems treated, such as conventional metal braces or Invisalign. Invisalign has been gaining a lot of attention recently due to its massive benefits including overall comfort, the visual appearance of your teeth, and the often shorter overall treatment time. Unlike conventional metal braces that people may shy away from, Invisalign can be worn without anyone realizing it. Here are a few key facts about Invisalign to consider:
Invisalign Is a Comfortable Corrective Tool
Are you tired of your conventional metal braces and the constant need to keep a close eye on what goes into your mouth? While metal braces are a traditional method for correcting misaligned teeth, they can also be extremely uncomfortable at times. What if you could get the same benefits without the added stress or discomfort? That is what Invisalign will provide you with – comfort and ease!
Invisalign Is Not Made of Plastic
There is a popular misconception that Invisalign is a series of custom-made plastic aligners. In fact, Invisalign is made of a biocompatible polyurethane resin that is much stronger when compared to standard plastic. This biocompatible polyurethane resin has the strength needed to move your teeth into their new position, whereas a standard plastic would not. Thus, Invisalign does not break easily but can be easily stained just like your natural teeth would when consuming things like coffee or tea.
Invisalign Is Easy to Remove
Conventional metal or ceramic braces don’t allow for removal until the treatment has been completed in full. Whereas, Invisalign invisible braces provide one with the advantage to take off the braces during meal times or when one needs to clean their teeth. This is possible due to the tray-like design where they can be inserted and removed at will, rather than being cemented directly to the teeth. This is one of the top reasons why Invisalign is preferred over standard metal braces.
Invisalign Can Provide Faster Correction
Invisalign may offer a shorter treatment duration for the correction of misaligned teeth. Each aligner is specifically designed to help each tooth migrate quicker to its new permanent location. It takes about six weeks for one millimeter of movement, which is faster compared to traditional metal braces. An expert dentist recommends their patients keep the Invisalign on for 20 to 22 hours a day to achieve this goal.
