What are the Benefits of Wearing Invisalign Removable Braces?
Fewer Visits With Dentist
Right at the beginning of the treatment, you already receive a series of Invisalign aligners: each one of them specially produced for each stage of your treatment according to the virtual planning made by your orthodontist. Aligner changes usually happen weekly or every two weeks and this change can be done at home. That’s why one of the main advantages of the Invisalign invisible braces is the more spaced visits to the dentist. Consultations are usually made every six or eight weeks and serve to monitor the evolution of treatment, which is why they are also faster.
Much More Efficient Treatment
In addition to the virtual planning – which we explained further in item 2 – there are other factors that contribute to the high efficiency of the invisible braces. One of them is SmartTrack technology, which goes far beyond providing comfort to aligners with the ideal fit for each smile. The material still allows for constant force to be applied, but more gently to avoid painful treatment. The technology also contributes to greater control of tooth movement, making the process much more accurate.
Self-Esteem Up There!
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign doesn’t affect your look at all and you can see the first results appear faster. Away from metal wires, rubbers and brackets, your self-esteem will remain high throughout the treatment! The possibility of removing the braces for a few hours for special events, for example, helps even more in this regard. In addition, the agility of the treatment also contributes to greater excitement, as it allows you to visualize the results in a shorter period.
Less Painful Treatment
As we’ve talked about here, the technology used in the production of aligners is largely responsible for making your orthodontic treatment more comfortable, but it’s not the only one. In addition to having a custom fit for your smile, Invisalign also doesn’t have any metallic threads to hurt your mouth and still has other factors that contribute to the application of force more smoothly.
The material can work together with another technology called SmartForce: they are small pieces strategically glued to help aligners apply the exact force needed to move your teeth, without harming the position of neighboring teeth. It is worth remembering that not everyone needs to use these pieces, but if necessary, they are the same color as the teeth and very small, so they are practically imperceptible – just like the aligners.
Oral Hygiene Made Easy
One of the great advantages of Invisalign compared to fixed braces is certainly the ease at the time of oral hygiene. The metallic wires and brackets make brushing difficult and, as the braces cannot be removed during meals, the accumulation of dirt is greater. With Invisalign this problem is solved: just remove it at the time of meals and oral hygiene. Cleaning your aligners is also very simple and can be done with your own toothbrush or with the brand’s exclusive cleaning system.
