The Invisalign system offers distinct advantages over traditional braces that make them popular with patients. Braces require dietary adjustments, regular maintenance, and are significantly difficult to care for. Technology has improved considerably since the advent of braces. New orthodontic systems such as Invisalign have resulted in more comfortable and revolutionary treatments.
Invisalign utilizes 3-D technology with advanced software to make a digital impression of the patient’s mouth. The design is produced by the lab and determines what shape the aligners will be created in. The custom aligners are then finalized and initiate the teeth straightening process.
The aligners fit comfortably over the teeth and are difficult to detect by non-patients. The common problems with braces are avoided with the application of Invisalign. They are flexible, removable, transparent, and accommodates the patient’s daily lifestyle.
“Invisalign aligners are so transparent that they are almost non-existent. Patients do not to worry about distracting their friends or feeling uncomfortable when out in public. Anything can be eaten while the aligners are being worn. They can be removed at any time and are just as easy to slip back on. This is the teeth straightening experience that patients have been seeking for a long time”, explained a dental hygienist at the office.
Invisalign is not recommended for every case, but works effectively for tooth alignment concerns. It can help with jaw problems by improving alignment of the bite and reduce the severity of tooth crowding. More patients have opted to correct their tooth alignment concerns, which they may have not if Invisalign wasn’t available.
