Metal braces have always been associated with pain and discomfort. Fortunately, things have changed and people are no longer shackled to braces any more. The latest technology in teeth straightening is the invisalign treatment. Invisalign treatment is preferred by many because of the sheer comfort it offers. Braces disrupt normal life as they are fixed to the tooth, they interfere in chewing. Food gets easily trapped in the braces making total oral hygiene very difficult. The elastic and wires stuffed in the mouth is another stress factor. Worst of all is the regular visit to the dentist to tighten the braces.
Another merit of the invisalign braces is that the patient can have a complete visual idea of the realignment of the teeth. Since the invisalign treatment process is a computerized process, the patient can actually see the different stages of improvement of the teeth structure and plan an effective treatment plan an effective treatment plan along with the dentist. With the different invisalign treatment plans, the patient can decide on which treatment plan will be most effective.
Also, invisalign is transparent. Aligners are not fixed. So it is easy to take them out when you want to clean your teeth or even before an important meeting. The mechanism is much easier as there are no metals or elastic wires inside the mouth. Most of all, one does not need to visit the dentist regularly for adjusting the aligners. They come pre-fitted for your face. So, if you feel you need to tighten the teeth, you should upgrade to the next set that has already been provided for you.
The most important reason to invisalign is aesthetics. There is no longer need of worrying about meat pieces or vegetable scraps stuck in the braces. The plastic used to make invisalign is thin and transparent. Therefore, they are discrete and barely visible. This is a huge relief to people who need the unobtrusiveness and the convenience provided by transparent aligners. Since these are invisible, even working people can use them without fearing any negative publicity.
With invisalign, there is no chance of demineralising or tooth decay, which occurs in about half the patients using traditional aligners. The pressure on gums and the adjacent teeth tissues is also relieved by the invisalign treatment. The patient is completely relieved from gum inflammations and swellings that occur while wearing traditional braces.
