The Advantages of Invisalign
Here are some of the advantages of Invisalign:
Invisalign Looks Better
The biggest benefit of Invisalign is that the retainers are virtually invisible. Adult patients love that colleagues and clients can’t see they are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
With Invisalign you don’t go through a period of people commenting on your new braces. You Can Take the Aligners Out to Eat
Patients often ask us “do you have to wear Invisalign all the time?” For best results Invisalign needs to be worn for 20 - 22 hours each day, which means you can take your aligners out when you are eating. It’s Easier to Brush and Floss Your Teeth
With Invisalign, much of the orthodontist’s work happens before you wear your aligners. A 3D scan of your teeth is used for making all the customised retainers in a laboratory. You should change the multiple sets of retainers on your orthodontist’s directions. There is no need to visit the orthodontics for adjustments so visits are kept to a minimum to check on progress. Few visits to the orthodontist means less time off work.Comfortable to Wear
You may be wondering “are braces or invisalign more painful?” Moving teeth around with Invisalign can be uncomfortable and painful, much like traditional braces. However, there are also fewer mouth and gum problems with Invisalign. Invisalign retainers are made of a special plastic and fitted to each patients mouth, so - unlike braces - there are typically no cuts on the inside cheeks or salt washes to deal with.
