If you’ve ever considered straightening your teeth, you’ve probably heard of Invisalign. Launched in the late 1990s, Invisalign is a clear aligner system that’s used to treat misaligned teeth, overcrowded or gappy smiles, and a range of other bite issues.
Before Invisalign grew in popularity, orthodontic treatment often involved wearing fixed appliances or metal aligners. While these options have always been very effective, Invisalign now offers similar results without any major lifestyle changes.
So, what makes Invisalign so good, and why should you consider it for straightening your teeth?
Here are six of the main reasons why people love Invisalign so much.
1. Invisalign Is Transparent
If you’re worried that people might notice the fact that you’re having orthodontic treatments, this won’t be a problem with Invisalign. The clear aligners are virtually invisible, and even if anyone does notice them, they’re very subtle.
Additionally, if you’re having a photo taken and you don’t want your aligner on show, you can easily take it out for a couple of minutes while you say, “cheese!”
2. Invisalign Is Comfortable
Invisalign is made from a special material called SmartTrack. This smooth medical-grade plastic is lightweight and barely noticeable when you’ve been wearing it for a while.
In fact, Invisalign aligners are so comfortable that you can even sleep in them, which is ideal because you’ll need to wear them for around 22 hours each day to get the best results.
3. Invisalign Is Versatile
There are several problems associated with the alignment of your teeth. Whether your teeth are too close together, too far apart, or crooked, Invisalign can move them to where they need to be.
To perfect your smile, your aligners will gently put pressure on your teeth. This slight force is so small that it’s barely noticeable; however, over the course of your treatment, your teeth will noticeably shift.
4. Invisalign Is Removable
Your aligner isn’t fixed in place, meaning you can take it out to eat and brush your teeth. Often, wearers of fixed appliances have difficulty at mealtimes as certain food can get stuck in brace wires. Removing your aligner means you can eat whatever takes your fancy!
Cleaning your aligner is straightforward too. Whenever you brush your teeth, you can clean your aligner with a different brush, keeping it fresh and bacteria-free.
5. There are No Adjustments
With braces, you usually need to have the wires adjusted every few weeks. Tightening your wires helps progress your treatment. With Invisalign, there are no adjustment appointments.
Instead, we’ll replace your aligner every couple of weeks. Your new aligner differs slightly from the previous one and achieves the same effect as tightening brace wires.
We’ll ask you to call in for a checkup every now and then to ensure your treatment is on track.
6. Invisalign Achieves Great Results
The main reason people choose to get orthodontic treatment is to get a smile they’ll love. Invisalign does exactly this. After your treatment, you’ll see a big difference in your smile, and we know you’ll feel great about the results.
