The Benefits Of Invisalign Clear Aligners

Posted on: 26 November 2019

Having a beautiful smile to share with the world can be a great boost to your self-confidence. However, even the slightest imperfection in the teeth can make a huge difference in how the smile appears. Fortunately, there are ways to correct the appearance of the teeth without having to spend years wearing metal braces. One of those options is wearing Invisalign clear aligners. These are some of the benefits of using Invisalign aligners to straighten the teeth:

Custom-Made Comfort

Invisalign clear aligners are custom made for each individual patient. They are created by making molds of the patient's teeth so they fit snugly and comfortably. 

This ensures the aligners fit tight enough to straighten the teeth and stay in place unless the wearer wants to remove them. Additionally, no uncomfortable wires, rubber bands, or adhesives are needed to hold the aligners on the teeth.  

Unnoticeable To Others

Invisalign clear aligners are made of a high-quality material that is transparent when worn. The precision fit is so perfect for each individual patient's teeth that the aligners are virtually invisible to the naked eye. This gives the wearer confidence in knowing that their teeth are being straightened without others seeing evidence of a dental appliance being worn.

Ease Of Removal

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign clear aligners can be removed from the teeth by the patient as needed. Meals can be enjoyed without wearing the aligners. Brushing and flossing the teeth are also done when the aligners have been taken off. The aligners can be easily placed back on the teeth after meals and dental hygiene are finished.

Suitable For Adults And Teenagers

Invisalign clear aligners are suitable for people of all ages who want to improve the appearance of their smile. As long as all the permanent teeth have come in, these aligners can be worn by both teenagers and adults.

With improvements in technology and the design of Invisalign aligners in the past few years, more dental conditions than ever before can be corrected with this type of product. Even those patients who thought their only option was traditional metal braces have successfully been able to improve the alignment of their teeth with this treatment. 

It is also possible for some patients to need less time to straighten their teeth by wearing Invisalign clear aligners than what would be required by wearing regular metal wire-and-bracket braces on their teeth.
