Invisalign – What Is It & Why Is It So Popular?

Invisalign is an orthodontic procedure where clear aligners are used to straighten misaligned or crooked teeth. A series of custom made aligners are designed to be used during specific stages of the teeth straightening process based on the patient’s treatment requirements. These aligners are designed to gently push the teeth into their desired position.

Reasons Why Invisalign is So Popular

They Look Better Than Metal Braces

A lot of people who wear metal braces can feel self-conscious due to their unflattering appearance. Invisalign aligners, on the other hand, are almost invisible, as they’re made from a clear thermoplastic material. This means people can get their teeth straightened while still having the confidence to smile.

Controlled & Precise Movements

With Invisalign, the patient’s teeth will start to move to their desired position very quickly, meaning patients will be able to see how the alignment of their teeth has changed shortly after beginning treatment. The Invisalign treatment doesn’t move all teeth at the same time, allowing for more precise and more regulated control over when and how the patient’s teeth shift.

Minimal Discomfort

Patients will naturally feel some discomfort and pressure when undergoing any type of orthodontic treatment, and this will occur with every new set of Invisalign aligners. However, this is a good thing; the feeling of pressure means that your teeth are moving as intended. Invisalign aligners have smooth edges that are made to minimise how much irritation the teeth and gums experience, helping to make the overall treatment as comfortable as possible.

Convenience

Many people dislike metal braces, as their brackets and wires can make it hard to eat and clean their teeth. However, these problems don’t exist if you’re using Invisalign aligners. You can eat whatever you like without worrying about food getting caught in the aligners, and you can easily take the aligners out of your mouth when you want to brush and floss your teeth.
