One of the more popular teeth straightening options, Invisalign, is all the rage among dental patients in and around Glen Mills, Pennsylvania, and for a good reason. Compared to other traditional teeth straightening options, Invisalign offers many beneficial differences and still gets the job done successfully.
While traditional teeth-straightening options have metal brackets and bands visible to others, Invisalign offers a more discreet alternative. It is a clear aligner placed on the teeth, making it hard for others to see. That is a significant confidence booster, especially for adults who feel they have passed the age for braces.
You can also give your teeth a break when you have Invisalign. The aligners are meant to be worn most of the day and the night, but they can come out for you to brush your teeth and eat. That allows you to comfortably straighten your teeth while living life as normal as possible. Patients who require braces do have dietary restrictions due to the brackets and bands used.
With Invisalign, you must regularly visit your dentist or orthodontist to monitor the aligners and ensure the teeth are straightening correctly. With similar options, they offer at-home alternatives that inexperienced dental patients try to do themselves and unfortunately find themselves taking longer to get through the process.
Using Invisalign, you will need to move to new aligners in the series regularly. Invisalign requires professionals to accurately take impressions so that you can get the best fitting aligners and have your teeth straightened faster.
Compared to the more traditional teeth straightening options, the time required for Invisalign is much shorter, with most needing anywhere from one year to 18 months total. For patients who need braces, treatment could last at least 18 months or go as long as three years.
