One instinctively feels more professional, capable, and confident with a sparkling white smile. Additionally, having a straight smile can help you feel more attractive and sociable. But what if you have to have braces as an adult? For many, this can be a huge hit to their self-esteem, but it doesn’t need to be as Invisible Braces are here.
Depending on your specific dental situation, you may be an excellent candidate for Invisible Aligners. These are clear transparent orthodontic inserts that straighten the teeth and do the same function as braces but are invisible.
What are Invisible Aligners or Invisalign?
Invisible Aligners are 3D printed molds that behave like retainers & are made by using clear transparent plexiglass. These are designed and made by highly trained Orthodontists using AI to predict your teeth movements. They can be removed from the mouth for eating, flossing, and brushing. Because they are removable, they are more conducive to maintaining optimal overall dental health. You will receive a new aligner every few weeks as your teeth slowly adjust to the current aligner. Each aligner slowly makes your teeth more Straight. This behavior is similar to braces, where you visit your dentist every few weeks to tighten your wires.
Do they Give the Same results as Traditional Braces?
When comparing tradtional braces vis a vis Invisible Aligners, one should weigh all the pro’s and con’s. Adults and teens who tend to be self-conscious might find the discrete look of Invisible Aligners or Invisalign is incredibly appealing, and its removability is also a big draw. However, it’s important to remember that the success of Invisalign depends almost entirely on the patient. If you don’t wear them as directed, they just won’t work. With regular non-removable braces, you don’t really have a choice in the matter! Keep in mind, too, that if you need to address issues with your back teeth, or you need to rotate teeth or move them vertically, Invisalign may not even be an option for your particular case. That’s why it’s so important to work with an experienced Dentist like Dr. Sandhya Biyani. She has years of working with both braces and Invisible Aligners, and is dedicated to helping you find the best solution tailor-made for you. Straightening your teeth isn’t just about improving your smile. It also has an impact on your overall oral health, which shouldn’t be taken lightly.
How Long do I need to wear Invisible Aligners For?
Invisible aligners need to be worn all day but can be taken out intermittently for eating and cleaning the teeth. Invisible aligners need to be used for 10-24 months to achieve the desired position of the teeth. This is similar time frames to that of traditional braces. In both cases retention wire or tray needs to be worn.
