Invisalign is one of the most advanced orthodontic aligners in today's dental world. It is a removable aligner that is made from transparent plastic material and stays under disguise when worn by the patient. The walls of the aligner apply pressure on the teeth in a controlled manner, thereby helping to move the teeth in the required direction.
Advantages of Invisalign
- Invisalign is made from dental-grade plastic material that is transparent. When you wear it, people who see you talk or smile wouldn’t be able to notice it easily. However, upon close viewing, it would be visible.
- Invisalign doesn’t have any metal components such as brackets or wires. Its contour will be designed in such a way that the walls of the aligner apply pressure on the teeth to move them as desired.
- Patients undergoing orthodontic treatment usually have to stop eating foods that are hard or sticky as they could damage the aligners. But, in the case of Invisalign, there is no such restriction.
- Patients can brush and floss their teeth as they do regularly, even while using Invisalign. But, this becomes too difficult when you are using dental braces.
