A smile is a window to your spirit. A set of perfectly aligned teeth can do wonders to improve your smile and leave a lasting first impression on all you come in contact with. Unfortunately, many suffer from crooked, misaligned and overcrowded teeth. This can detract from your looks and self-confidence. If you opt for the Invisalign treatment, your qualified doctor will use accurate 3D scans for a customized treatment for your teeth using a series of clear teeth aligners.
1. Invisalign Can Straighten Teeth Faster Than Conventional Braces
With Invisalign, clear aligners are used to delicately move your teeth into the proper position. These are made of plastic and are removable, unlike traditional braces. Within a few months, you can transform your smile. You will easily be able to clean your teeth, eat foods you fancy and unlike braces, you can remove your aligners occasionally for special events. You need to ensure you don’t do this too often though as it can interfere with the alignment process. Invisalign provides slightly quicker results than traditional braces but it is based on the condition of your teeth. The more they need to be aligned and straightened, the longer the treatment will be with Invisalign.
2. Invisalign Treatment Lets You Attain Healthier Teeth
Let’s briefly discuss how the Invisalign treatment gives you a healthier set of teeth:
When your teeth aren’t in the ideal position, food particles can quite easily get confined within the gaps. This can turn into bad bacteria if not cleaned immediately through regular brushing and flossing. The next thing you know, you’ve got cavities, and in severe cases, you could also develop gingivitis or periodontitis and tooth decay.
When you’re wearing your Invisalign aligners, you need to remove them after each meal and clean them. You will also need to brush your teeth before putting them back on. This reduces the chances of bad bacteria forming in your mouth. It’s much easier to clean your teeth than if you opted for traditional braces.
3. No More Crowded or Misaligned Teeth
Invisalign can rectify many orthodontic issues such as crowded teeth, crooked teeth, misaligned teeth and an open bite. You can develop a set of overcrowded teeth owing to various factors like a cleft palate or a cleft lip, an abnormally shaped set of teeth or losing baby teeth very early in life. Invisalign can help align your teeth with consistent and gentle pressure applied to them. Within six months, this treatment can help correct the limited crowding of your teeth. With more extreme cases, you may need a longer period and multiple treatments to get it resolved.
4. Enhanced Aesthetics
Invisalign is more aesthetically appealing than traditional braces as they are made of clear material and it’s a possibility that you could even get away with people thinking you’re not wearing anything on your teeth! You can smile freely and confidently. These aligners are cosmetic as well as functional. They don’t alter the shape of your face. Invisalign facilitates easy chewing of your food, which is visually appealing when you’re eating your meals. With this discreet teeth alignment treatment, you can maintain a natural look throughout your term of wearing your aligners and until you’re free to remove them permanently, armed with a dazzling natural set of teeth.
5. Improve Your Ability To Speak Clearly
It’s not just your tongue that helps you speak clearly. Your teeth also assist in pronouncing your words. Misaligned teeth can hamper your ability to communicate effectively and with self-confidence. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are made of thin plastic material and if at all it affects your speech it will be in a very small way. Do note however that you may suffer from a small lisp when you are initially fitted with your Invisalign aligners.
