What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign®, sometimes referred to as clear aligners, is a method of straightening teeth without traditional metal braces. Invisalign® is commonly used by adults or by people who do not like the traditional look of braces.
Invisalign® vs Braces
Invisalign® and traditional braces are similar in that they are both methods of straightening teeth for aesthetic purposes and to correct orthodontic issues. However, there are a few differences between the two.
The metal wires of traditional braces may cause pain and irritation to the mouth and gums. Metal braces must be worn at all times for a duration of 1-4 years. Constantly wearing traditional braces makes it harder to clean your teeth. Improper teeth cleaning can lead to cavities or infections. You are advised to avoid certain crunchy or sticky foods with traditional braces since these foods could crack or damage the metal. Traditional braces usually require follow up visits every 4-6 weeks.
Invisalign® braces can be taken out for a few hours each day, which makes it easier to floss and brush your teeth. Invisalign® braces should be taken out before meals and must be cleaned regularly. Many people prefer the nearly invisible look of Invisalign® braces over traditional metal braces. Patients wearing Invisalign® braces can expect follow up visits every 4-6 weeks and can easily change out their aligners every two weeks.
