Many are blessed with aligned teeth while there are some who are not; modern dental studies and research have found the best solution for you to stay miles away from those unappealing traditional metal braces and yet have a flawless smile. For all your questions regarding smile correction without getting noticed; Invisalign is the answer.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign—also known as Clear Aligners—is an appliance which is designed by mapping a 3D image of your jaw and is made up of high-grade plastic. The treatment involves a series of Invisalign aligners to straighten your teeth. It also gives you the flexibility of time, space, and the ability to eat without restrictions.
Difference Between Normal Braces and Invisalign
Both give the same end result – a confident beautiful smile. To have a better understanding of both, have a look at the comparison below:
|Invisalign Aligners||Traditional Braces|
|Nearly invisible||Highly visible. Comprises of big metal brackets and wires.|
|Pain-free treatment||The patient may feel the pain each time the braces are adjusted. Also, the brackets may cause irritation and results in ulcers.|
|Requires few dentist visits||It demands frequent dentist visits to adjust the braces and to check the progress.|
|No restrictions in eating||Traditional braces restricts eating lot of food items which can stick around the brackets and on the teeth|
|No cleaning required and can be removed whenever required||It requires regular cleaning by an expert. And unlike Invisalign, traditional braces do not allow you to remove them while eating or during other activities.|
These aren’t the only differences; Invisalign aligners save you from post-treatment teeth cleaning expenditures and are easy to use on a daily basis. It requires you to wear it for at least 20 hours a day for better and faster results. Currently, Invisalign treats around 3 million people around the globe and has an almost 95% satisfaction rate!
