Invisalign: Is It The Best?

Worrying about your teeth being misaligned isn’t something anyone wants to think about. Plus, with many people assuming orthodontic treatment is for children, how can adults get straight teeth without noticing?

Invisalign, in case you didn’t know, is how. Invisalign is a successful worldwide aligner made from clear smart material, so it’s practically invisible to see.

But, does the popularity of Invisalign match up to how good it actually is?

Why Is Invisalign So Popular?

Before Invisalign, when you wanted a straight smile, you had to persevere with years of train track braces and clunky metal brackets cluttering up your smile. Now, you can get your teeth straightened without anyone noticing.

Founded in 1997, Invisalign was a world-first in invisible orthodontics. Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear aligners, all custom-made to slightly move your teeth with each stage of the process. 

The result is a perfectly straight smile, and no one has noticed you were even going through treatment. As an alternative to conventional braces aimed at adults looking for discretion, it’s not hard to see why Invisalign is the world’s favourite.

Are There Any Flaws With Invisalign?

Invisalign is practically per cent as far as orthodontic treatments go. It’s virtually invisible, so only people standing at point blank range who already know you’re wearing your aligner will be able to tell.

Many think Invisalign will be super uncomfortable. The truth is, it really isn’t. Because the aligners are made to your specifications, each aligner actually fits really well and should sit snug over your teeth for minimum discomfort. 

Some people also assume that Invisalign will take longer than metal braces because of the material it’s made from. Nope. Invisalign clear aligners gently transition you through each phase of your treatment over around 12-18 months.

Who Can Get Treated With Invisalign?

Invisalign has a few ranges developed for different groups of patients. There’s Invisalign Lite, Teen and regular Invisalign, among others. It’s best to call your dentist to see how eligible you are for treatment from Invisalign.
