Invisalign Aligners – Invisible Clear Braces

Home Dental Clinic Cosmetic Dentistry Invisalign Aligners – Invisible Clear Braces

Say goodbye to visible aligners, try Invisalign Aligners.

What is Invisalign Aligner? 

Invisalign aligners, also known as invisible clear braces, are an orthodontic treatment that uses invisible, removable aligners to straighten your teeth. This treatment is an alternative to traditional braces. During this treatment, you will need to wear a series of clear plastic trays, each of which nudges your teeth, slowly bringing them to the desired alignment. Aside from being less visible, these transparent trays are removable, meaning that you can take them off before eating or cleaning your teeth.

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is a comfortable treatment that moves your teeth in the desired position with gentle but constant pressure. This treatment is generally deemed perfect for dental misalignments that are not too severe.

Are You a Good Candidate for Invisalign?

Here is a brief overview of the candidacy criteria for Invisalign treatment:

  • Candidates must be committed to wearing the aligners for the recommended 20-22 hours daily, only removing them for eating, brushing, and flossing.
  • Invisalign is most effective for older teenagers and adults. This is because their teeth and jaws are fully developed, and they’re more likely to adhere to the treatment regimen.
  • Regular dental visits are essential for monitoring progress and making adjustments as needed.
  • Invisalign is suitable for individuals with mild to moderate dental misalignments, such as slight crowding or gaps. It may not be effective for severe cases like major overbites, underbites, or crossbites.
  • Invisalign is ideal for those who prefer a less noticeable treatment option compared to traditional metal braces.
  • Candidates should have good overall oral health. This includes no active gum disease or severe tooth decay, as these conditions can affect the effectiveness of the treatment.
  • Candidates should be willing to wear a retainer after completing the Invisalign treatment to maintain the results.
  • Smoking can stain the aligners and impact oral health, thus it’s advisable for Invisalign users to refrain from smoking during treatment.

Benefits of Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign offers a myriad of benefits over other orthodontic treatments, including traditional braces. Let’s have a quick look at those benefits.

Easy to clean: If you have braces or know someone who has them, you may have an idea how difficult it can be to clean the metal wires and brackets. Invisalign transparent braces rid you of these worries as you can take these trays off anytime and clean them with a brush and toothpaste.

Fewer visits to the dentist: Every set of clear aligners needs to be worn for a predetermined period before you visit your dentist to get the next set of trays. This is much easier than seeing your dentist more frequently to adjust the wires and brackets.

No dietary restrictions: Invisalign trays are removable, meaning that you can eat whatever you want. On the other hand, braces come with many dietary restrictions due to the increased risk of food chunks getting stuck between the brackets and wires.

Better appearance: Many people do not like the nerdy look originating from a ‘braced’ smile. Those individuals can benefit from clear Invisalign trays, which are hardly noticeable.

Comfortable treatment: Braces work by tightening or pressing the metal wires to reposition the teeth. This may cause soreness in the gums and general discomfort, making chewing difficult. You can evade all these issues by using Invisalign to straighten your teeth.

How Do Invisalign Aligners Work?

As mentioned above, Invisalign treatment involves using clear aligner trays that turn and reposition your teeth to align them. These trays are prepared using impressions and digital photographs of your teeth. With this treatment, you have to use a series of trays with every next set of trays designed to provide an improvement over the current set. You will continue to receive these trays until your orthodontic goals are achieved.

After wearing the last set of trays for the required number of weeks, you will need to wear a retainer, which is a specialised device to prevent your teeth from shifting back to their pre-treatment alignment.

Is Invisalign Painful?

Invisalign trays are minimally painful. The discomfort resulting from every new set of trays is comparable to the pain due to the tightening of wires and brackets in braces. The good thing is that these trays do not have any wires and brackets, meaning the discomfort will be even lesser.

Is Invisalign as Effective as Braces?

Invisalign trays are effective as braces, provided that the crookedness of your teeth is not severe. It is an ideal treatment option for mild to moderately misaligned teeth. On the other hand, braces help treat severe misalignments.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

Invisalign can take six months to two years to deliver the desired results. The length of this treatment generally depends on the degree of teeth misalignment.

Can You Eat with Invisalign?

Yes! You can remove your clear trays before your mealtime and eat anything you want. It is worth mentioning that Invisalign trays are not made to endure teeth grinding when chewing.

How Do I Clean My Invisible Braces?

Soaking your aligners in a solution of antibacterial soap mixed in water dislodges all stubborn bacteria from the aligners’ surface. Then, brush these aligners with non-abrasive toothpaste.
