Do you have misaligned teeth or have bite-related issues like underbite, crossbite, or overbite? In the past, traditional braces were the only treatment option available to fix these misalignment issues. However, these metal braces pose several disadvantages to the wearer. The metal wires of the braces can lead to pain and discomfort when they rub against the cheek of the patient wearing them.  

In the present, thanks to the technological advancements in dentistry, we have more options to straighten the teeth. Among them, Invisalign, which are transparent aligners free of brackets and wires, is most popular as it offers all the benefits of metal braces while being comfortable for the wearer. 

What are Invisalign aligners?

Invisalign aligner is a clear aligner that uses 3D computer imaging technology to align the teeth and get rid of bite-related issues.

Invisalign aligners can fix the following dental concerns:

  • The gaps between adjacent teeth resulting from abnormal jaw growth or shifting of teeth due to missing teeth can be fixed using Invisalign. 
  • Invisalign aligners help adjust the overcrowding of the teeth inside the mouth.
  • They help to fix the overlapping of the teeth.
  • Invisalign can help to fix the poor positioning of the teeth developed due to the projections of teeth.
  • They help correct bite issues, including crossbites, open bites, and underbites.

What are the advantages of Invisalign aligners?

Invisalign aligners offer the following benefits: 

  • Invisalign aligners are transparent and almost invisible. Hence, they are aesthetically appealing. 
  • The results of Invisalign aligners are faster than the conventional braces.
  • Invisalign can be removed while brushing, flossing, or eating. 
  • When compared with traditional aligners, Invisalign causes less trouble and pain.
  • Wearing Invisalign aligners causes less discomfort and pain than metal braces, as the former doesn't include any sharp brackets, metal components, or edges. 
  • Unlike metal braces, using Invisalign aligners does not require the wearer to make any changes to their diet like the conventional braces.
  • Dentists suggest wearing Invisalign aligners to correct the relapsing tooth movement after removing the conventional braces.

What are the advantages of Invisalign aligners?

The major benefits offered by Invisalign aligners are as follows:  

  • Invisalign is clear and almost invisible. Hence, they do not affect the aesthetics of the teeth. 
  • Invisalign aligners give faster results. 
  • As the wearer can remove the aligners while brushing and flossing, it won't affect the oral hygiene routine.
  • Invisalign aligners are more comfortable and convenient for the wearer as they don't have any sharp braces, edges, or metal components.
  • Since the users can take Invisalign aligners off while eating, they do not need to make any changes to their diet.

Are you the right candidate for Invisalign?

  • Invisalign aligners are usually recommended only for older teenagers and adults who have predominantly grown adult teeth. 
  • Invisalign aligners can treat only mild dental concerns like open bite, overbites, crossbites, underbites, and gapped teeth. If the malocclusion is severe, other orthodontic procedures are recommended. 
  • If you think it is hard for you to visit your orthodontist often to get wires tightened, Invisalign aligners are for you. Invisalign aligners require less maintenance and dental visits.
