If you ever thought that not using braces as a child would make it too late to wear braces publicly as an adult, then think again. There is an invisible solution to correct your teeth without letting the world know of your cosmetic endeavors. It is not a gimmick, it is not magic; it is simply a marvel of new technology. It is a trail-blazing innovation called Invisalign, which is changing the world of teen and adult orthodontics.
The Invisalign system cares for your privacy. It does not bring undue attention to the fact that you’re wearing aligners, and makes sure that it does not interfere with your normal life in any way. It is a system of completely transparent aligners made in clear plastic. It does away with the traditional metal wires and brackets system altogether. Its ability to preserve the user’s aesthetics makes it an ideal solution for teenagers and adults who are reluctant to use unsightly metal braces.
Invisalign clear aligners have another key advantage in that they are removable by design. This helps to improve oral hygiene because the aligners can be removed at the time of eating, drinking, or brushing and flossing your teeth. You may drink plain water while wearing the braces. The advantage here is that you are free to eat all kinds of foods, and do not have to suffer restrictions for the entire duration of treatment, unlike with traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners are also more comfortable on the gums and the underlying tissue because they are relatively lighter than metal braces. People who have sensitive skin and are allergic to metals may opt for this clear plastic alternative that is highly biocompatible by nature. Many dentists think that the Invisalign system causes less pain and discomfort to the patient during the treatment compared to traditional metal braces. The aligners are precisely custom created with the help of computerized measurements. As a result, they can achieve maximum results with minimal force.
