Everyone should smile with confidence, no matter their age. In the past, teeth straightening appliances such as braces were associated with awkward, self-conscious teenage years; this made adults feel uncomfortable with the prospect of walking around with metal braces. Now, with the advanced technology of Invisalign braces, you can transform your smile without feeling self-conscious.
Are You Ashamed of Your Smile?
Invisalign braces fix overbites, underbites, overcrowding and skew teeth, helping you regain full confidence in your smile. If you feel embarrassed about your teeth, then you should consider Invisalign.
They’re a series of clear, almost invisible aligners that are manufactured for your teeth and are changed every two weeks. Throughout treatment, you continue to replace your aligners until your teeth have straightened.
In addition, 3D computer imaging provides an accurate prediction of the movement your teeth will take throughout your treatment, which makes it easier to predict the length of your treatment and schedule regular check-ups.
Traditional braces are noticeable, which can make people feel self-conscious and anxious. One of the major benefits of Invisalign braces is that they’re practically invisible and are worn without detection.
Invisalign is less invasive and abrasive than traditional braces. The clear retainers move your teeth gradually; unlike fixed braces, there are no brackets or wires that press against your teeth or gums causing discomfort. The comfortable, smooth trays also allow you to play musical instruments, contact sports and participate in any other activities that are sometimes uncomfortable with wire braces.
Traditional braces restrict patients from eating anything that might damage the wires. With Invisalign braces, you can remove them at any time and eat and drink whatever you like.
Patients with traditional braces often need special implements to clean the metal wires and brackets. Any plaque left behind during this process can jeopardise oral health. Invisalign retainers don’t overly complicate your oral hygiene habits. Once removed, you can brush and floss your teeth per usual. The aligners do need to be cleaned, but it’s as simple as brushing them with your toothbrush and giving them a thorough rinse.
Traditional braces are only removable by a professional, but you can take Invisalign braces out at any time. This means they don’t have to affect your lifestyle. If you have important meetings or special occasions to attend, you can do so without wearing braces.
Invisalign clear braces are transparent and far more subtle than traditional braces. The plastic aligners are thin, clear and designed to fit discreetly over your teeth, so onlookers won’t notice you’re wearing braces.
On average, Invisalign braces need to be maintained every 4–6 weeks, but you will know exactly what to expect and your check ups are because your treatment follows a computerised plan. With metal braces, it’s trickier to plan treatment times because you might need frequent cleanings and intensive treatments.
