All You Need To Know About Getting A Brand New Smile With Invisalign in the New Year

  1. Safe and Premium quality: The clear aligners are made from patented SmartTrack, a thermoplastic material exclusively made for Invisalign, which makes them different from the rest of the brands available in the market. They are FDA-approved and free from gluten, latex, BPA, and BPS.
  2. Versatile: Because of their innovative technology, Invisalign can be used to treat nearly all simple and complex dental conditions of teeth straightening and bite issues. For instance, Invisalign works well for gaps between your teeth, crowded teeth, overbites, underbites, and crossbites, and if you’re looking for generally straighter teeth. There are some dental conditions that are not suitable for Invisalign, including, if you have had bridgework done, resolve back teeth bite issues, need to rotate canines or molars or move teeth vertically. The best part of Invisalign? You will start seeing the results in a few weeks.
  3. Convenient: Metal braces are binding and restrictive, unlike Invisalign. You can remove Invisalign trays when you are brushing, flossing your teeth, while eating and drinking, and during special occasions. There are very few restrictions when it comes to eating all kinds of food and drinks (see below for precautions). It’s also very convenient to clean your aligners, unlike brushing and flossing your teeth with metal braces. Poor oral hygiene because of the inconvenience of metal braces, can lead to lesions and discolorations in the mouth and other teeth complications.
  4. Comfortable: Unlike metal braces, which have brackets and wires which can make you feel your teeth being forced, and pulled, patients using Invisalign feel less pain. They are thin, transparent, and fit snugly around your teeth. Invisalign aligners apply a gentle and consistent force on your teeth, which doesn’t interrupt your daily life. They can be comfortably worn nearly all day, including while sleeping. There is no fear of them breaking or rubbing and irritating the insides of your mouth and lips, making them sore and sometimes bleed, unlike metal braces.
  5. Aesthetic and natural-looking: Invisalign aligners are the preferred treatment for most adults and teenagers today, as few can tell if they’re wearing aligners to correct their teeth. They don’t look awkward like metal braces.
