Invisalign® offers many benefits that traditional braces do not offer, such as the ability to remove the aligners, shorter treatment times, and a more discreet solution to orthodontic care. The results with Invisalign treatment are also proven, and the aftercare process is designed to keep your smile straight long-term.
Reviewing the advantages of Invisalign treatment
By understanding the advantages that Invisalign can offer, you can make the best decision possible about how to straighten your teeth and jaw. Of course, the benefits vary based on your treatment goals, but the following includes five of the more commonly reported advantages of Invisalign to straighten teeth.
Invisalign aligners can be removed whenever the patient desires. This makes daily tasks such as eating and oral hygiene much easier. It also is useful when giving an important presentation at work or school. However, the ability to remove the aligners also comes with added responsibility. Patients should wear the aligners at least 20 hours each day and only remove them when it is necessary to do so. Nevertheless, the ability to remove them is a huge advantage for many patients.
Short treatment times
On average, the treatment times with Invisalign are significantly shorter than the treatment times with braces. This is largely beneficial to patients who may feel less secure with themselves while going through orthodontic treatment. In a fast-paced world, choosing the option that allows you to straighten teeth the fastest can be highly beneficial. Of course, treatment times vary and depend largely on how well the patient follows the treatment plan.
Perhaps the primary reason patients choose Invisalign over braces to straighten teeth is due to how discreet Invisalign aligners are. In fact, others are not likely to notice that you are wearing Invisalign unless you were to tell them. This is because the trays are made of a transparent material, whereas the metal brackets and wires used with traditional braces are highly visible.
The results of Invisalign are proven effective. While there are constantly new brands of clear aligners arriving on the market, they are far less proven or less effective than Invisalign. For patients who want the best possible orthodontic care, Invisalign or traditional braces are the best way to go. For patients who want discreet and effective care, Invisalign is a great choice.
The aftercare process is simple but thorough with Invisalign. Patients are given a retainer that retains the position of teeth after they are straightened. The aftercare process is monitored by the dental professional administering treatment. Without the retainer, teeth are prone to shift back to their original position.
