Invisalign has become one of the most popular and preferred alternatives to traditional braces. They are invisible dental devices that provide lasting benefits to the person wearing them. The Invisalign treatment has long term effects in improving the appearance of the teeth and their functionality. Further advancements and accessibility prove its viability for teeth straightening.

Conventional Braces or Invisalign: Which One to Choose?

Dentists suggest both braces and Invisalign to treat misaligned or crooked teeth. There are advanced devices that help correct the teeth alignment, causing minimal pain or discomfort.

Invisalign is made from clear, invisible plastic, which is comfortable to wear. Their manufacturing is strong and robust, thus providing long term benefits over conventional braces. It takes less time to wear without creating much discomfort inside the mouth. Additionally, you can brush and floss your teeth in a hassle-free way. The food particles do not get stuck in the nooks, as is the case with metal braces. You can also remove them and put them back smoothly as advised.

However, the correction of your teeth will depend on how well you stick to your daily regimen of maintaining dental hygiene and the correct number of hours of wear of the devices.

The Benefits of the Invisalign Treatment

1. A subtle treatment option

A significant reason why people prefer Invisalign over conventional metal braces is that they have clear plastic aligners, which is are less noticeable. If you want to show your smile while undergoing treatment, Invisalign is a good option. Besides, you can remove them quickly, in a short time, making them suitable and perfect for any occasion or event.  Each case is assessed for suitability as not all types of crowding can be treated with Invisalign.

2. Shortened treatment time

Every person responds differently to dental treatment. The outcome of the treatment matters. Patient compliance is essential for any orthodontic treatment, but it is a primary requirement during the Invisalign treatment. For effective results, you have to wear these aligners for 20-22 hours. You switch them every 1-2 weeks depending on your individual case.

3. Fewer visits to orthodontists

The traditional braces have brackets made from metal and wires to straighten the teeth. Although durable, if it breaks, you have to take an emergency orthodontic appointment to repair it. On the other hand, if the same problem persists with Invisalign, you can immediately replace it with the next one in your series.

4. Flexibility

The Invisalign aligners are more flexible than traditional braces. In the case of braces, you have to follow certain restrictions to keep them safe and clean. If sticky or crunchy food particles get stuck in the wires, it can hamper the treatment process. With no food restrictions, they provide utmost comfort and ease of use.
