5 Facts You Might Not Know About Invisalign

If you want to correct the positioning of your teeth without using conventional metal braces, Invisalign treatment may be an option. This treatment consists of using a series of clear orthodontic trays referred to as “aligners” that will move teeth over time to their desired position. It’s a highly recommended way to straighten teeth, and there are five very interesting facts that prove why this is the case.

1. Invisalign Aligners Are Specially Designed for Each Patient

State-of-the-art 3D modelling technology is used to shape and design aligners based on impressions of the patient’s specific teeth. As the overall treatment progresses, the patient will be given a new set of aligners that are made to further align their teeth.

2. Invisalign Aligners Straighten Teeth Faster Than Braces

Invisalign aligners are made to get teeth straighter quicker than conventional metal braces.Braces force only one individual tooth to move at any given time, whereas Invisalign aligners put an equal amount of pressure on every tooth at the same time to get them all properly aligned sooner.

3. Invisalign Aligners Can Be Removed

One of the best aspects of using Invisalign aligners instead of metal braces is that they can be taken out of the mouth. Although Invisalign aligners must be worn for a minimum amount of time every day so they can do their job properly, they can be removed for eating and cleaning.

4. Invisalign Aligners Are More Comfortable To Wear

Although metal braces do their job very well, they are notorious for being uncomfortable to wear due to their tightness and the potential issues their wires and brackets can cause. Invisalign aligners are by comparison far more comfortable to wear and are unlikely to cause any issues in the mouth.

5. Invisalign Aligners Use SmartTrack Material

While there are various types of clear dental aligners available, only Invisalign aligners are made out of SmartTrack material. SmartTrack is anextremely elastic material that’s much more comfortable on the teeth and mouth than other similar materials, making taking aligners on and off a lot easier. Its most notable advantage is that it’s designed to effectivelypush on your teeth with a gentle but unrelenting force to ensure teeth are moved to their desired position.
