A straight set of teeth can make a considerably large difference to an individual’s self-confidence. Orthodontic treatments are typically conducted during teenage years when the dental set-up is strong enough to sustain pressure impact caused to move teeth to ideal positions.

With traditional metal braces, Individuals generally try to finish up their treatment before they’re off to college to spare themselves the embarrassment of having metal brackets on their teeth. With the entry of Invisalign into the market, however, teeth straightening has become a viable option for adults as well – given their transparent nature.

Here’s all you need to know about Invisalign:

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign is a fairly new orthodontic device in the dental industry that comprises computer-generated molds made of BPA-free plastic that help realign teeth. The Invisalign treatment consists of multiple aligners fitted to the teeth for easy movement to an improved position as opposed to metal wires that apply pressure on the teeth to move.

Benefits of Invisalign

More and more Americans are choosing Invisalign. Here’s why:

Clear: The most significant reason for the popularity of Invisalign is the near-invisible feature that makes it almost impossible for people around the patient to tell that he or she is wearing an orthodontic device.

Convenience: The clear aligners are removable. This means that it can be taken off while eating, allowing the patient to enjoy a meal unhindered while maintaining the recommended 20 to 22-hour wear time.

Treatment period: Aligners are more accurate and involve a series of them made for a different phase of the treatment. Thus, the treatment is more efficient and offers results quickly.

Who can get Invisalign

Teenagers, as well as adults, can get their teeth straightened by Invisalign. An improved smile is not only about aesthetics but translates to good oral health. Straight teeth are easier to maintain, whereas crooked or crowded teeth create hard-to-reach areas that could lead to plaque buildup. Thus, it is best to get teeth straightened with Invisalign – better late than never.
