Top 5 Reasons To Choose Invisalign
1. Dental Breakthrough
Among the major strides in dental science and technology, Invisalign is one of the most ground-breaking innovations that completely rewrote the blueprint in modern teeth straightening. Still, how do you know if it is truly the right dental treatment for you?
2. Virtually Invisible
Invisalign is a series of 18 to 30 clear adjustable plastic aligners designed to slowly shift teeth to their proper place. One of its most notable advantages over traditional metal braces is that it is nearly undetectable. Engineered to be transparent and thus almost unnoticeable when worn, Invisalign gave new meaning to the word “discreet” and has emboldened countless self-conscious children and adults to finally wear an effective dental device with little to no discomfort.
3. Easily Removable
Unlike traditional metal braces that are permanently mounted on the teeth, Invisalign is a detachable device which patients may take off anytime they want to. Removing before eating allows patients to enjoy practically any food without worrying about bits and pieces getting caught or stuck in their braces. Also, taking off Invisalign after each meal enables patients to thoroughly brush and floss their teeth for better periodontal health.
Invisalign is made of strong, medical-grade thermoplastic material that is comfortable to wear. The smooth and soft design of the aligner trays prevent cheek abrasions and gum injuries.
Invisalign is also free from bisphenol A (BPA), an industrial chemical present in most polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Studies have shown that exposure to BPA may cause brain damage and adversely affect the behavior of infants and children.
5. Treatment Time
For best results, Invisalign aligners are prescribed to be worn 20 to 22 hours a day throughout the treatment program for an average of 6 to 12 months. The treatment protocols for patients with complicated cases may stretch anywhere from 18 to 24 months.
