Misaligned or crooked teeth is one of the most common dental problems affecting people globally. It is believed that at least nine in ten people have a slight or significant alignment issue. While these problems may not always affect your bite, it is still an issue to be corrected. Crooked teeth leave you vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease as they can create small gaps which are difficult to clean sufficiently. However, many are not interested in aligning their teeth due to the traditional treatment method of braces being disruptive and significantly affecting physical appearances. Another solution is available that can motivate you to straighten your teeth if you feel hesitant: Invisalign Treatment.
What is Invisalign Treatment?
Invisalign treatment is an orthodontic treatment that is widely used for individuals who have mild to moderate misalignment. It is also helpful to correct bite-related problems such as overbite, underbite, or crossbite. Our dentists use clear aligner trays to move the teeth into their correct positions. You need to wear the clear aligner for a minimum of 20 hours a day to have great results.
How can Invisalign treatment motivate you to straighten your teeth?
It is simple and easy to clean.
Traditional braces have brackets and wires, which can make it challenging to use them. They also cannot be removed once installed; hence, it is impossible to take them out and clean your teeth. Brushing and flossing can be difficult as moving around the braces is tough. While you can brush adequately if the toothbrush is held at a 45-degree angle, people often fail to do so, leading to bacterial growth and tooth decay. Invisalign treatment only uses plastic trays so you can remove them with ease and properly clean your teeth.
It does not affect your physical appearance.
As mentioned above, traditional braces can affect your appearance. Regardless of which material you choose, the wiring is visible and can alter your smile. They are also very prominent and difficult to hide. This is one of the reasons many adults refrain from using metal braces, as they will be unable to present themselves in certain situations the way they want to. Invisalign aligners are clear and blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth. Therefore, your smile and appearance will be unaffected, and others will not notice that you are wearing them.
They are comfortable and cause minimal discomfort.
The clear aligners do not interfere with the rest of your mouth. They are comfortable to wear and pose no interference to your bite or ability to chew food. If you wish, they can be removed when you eat and then attached afterwards. While the treatment can hurt a bit initially, it is considerably less painful than metal braces, and as you get used to the treatment, the pain will fade.
The Invisalign treatment is considered a revolutionary approach to orthodontics and can help straighten teeth without the complications of traditional equipment. Hence, more people are likely to be more motivated to align their teeth regardless of their age.
