The trend in orthodontics is clearly moving toward Invisalign. Invisalign employs clear, this plastic appliances that surround the crowns of the teeth. Progressively, patients align their teeth by changing to a new appliance weekly so that small movements occur toward a straighter condition.
The Advantages of Invisalign®
The key advantages of Invisalign® include:
- Comfort – there are calibrated movements that keep the teeth moving without over-stressing the teeth.
- Esthetics – the appliances are clear and much less noticeable than braces.
- No emergencies – There are no wire pokes or broken braces.
- No food restrictions – braces come with a list of foods that should be avoided during treatment. Invisalign aligners can be removed at any given time, so there are no food restrictions.
- Health – Aligners can be removed when it is time to brush and floss maintaining great oral health.
- Shorter treatment times – In most cases, by virtue of the weekly progression.
- Comparable cost – due to the shorter treatment times and fewer visits required, Invisalign is in the same price range as traditional braces.
