Advantages of Invisalign
Invisible aligners have a number of advantages that place them above traditional braces, but the most important one is comfort. Because these invisible aligners don’t require metal brackets or wires, they are lighter and more comfortable to wear. They can also be removed whenever you like which allows you to continue eating the foods you enjoy. Invisalign is virtually invisible, so you will feel confident wearing them in public. They also require fewer maintenance visits than traditional braces!
Candidates for Invisalign
Invisible aligners can be used to fix a number of dental issues. To determine if you’re a good candidate for clear braces, your dentist will perform a thorough examination of your overall dental health and bite. Issues typically recommended for treatment include overcrowded teeth, overbite, under-bite, cross-bite and spacing.
If your dentist determines that you are a good candidate for the process, he will take photos, x-rays, and impressions of your teeth in order to map out an effective treatment plan. Modern 3D technology is used to show your dentist exactly how your teeth will move during each step in the process. Most treatment plans take less than a year to complete!
