What are the advantages of Invisalign?
Firstly, Invisalign is a lot quicker than other methods of teeth straightening. This is partly because it is designed to address mild or moderate misalignment issues of the teeth which can be corrected more quickly and easily than complex cases. It is also designed to work on your visible teeth which are easier to move in comparison to molars and premolars. The average treatment time with Invisalign is approximately 6 to 12 months, but it can take up to 18 months depending on your dental requirements.
Next, you can maintain your dental hygiene routine with Invisalign. It is important that whichever type of orthodontic treatment you undergo, you visit our dentist on a regular basis to make sure that your teeth remain clean, healthy and strong throughout the process. Our dentist will be able to show you how to look after your teeth properly with braces and how to clean around the braces for those who have a fixed braces in the mouth. With Invisalign this is not a problem. You are able to maintain a good dental hygiene routine and you can brush and floss as usual by removing your aligners to clean your teeth. This is a huge advantage of Invisalign over traditional fixed metal braces for teeth straightening. With traditional braces there is a higher chance of plaque and tartar build-up on your teeth and on the braces themselves because you are unable to brush and floss as thoroughly. This can cause stains on your teeth and even lead to demineralisation or tooth decay and gum disease.
With Invisalign you are able to carry out all of your daily activities as usual, it does not affect your choice of food or drink as the aligners are removed at meal times.
