How Invisalign Treatment Works

Invisalign is a virtually invisible and hygienic orthodontic treatment. It uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually move your teeth into their new position. These aligners are changed out every two weeks during the course of treatment. With each new set designed to continue the progress of the last. The tooth correction targeted in each tray is mapped out in advance by your dentist.

Invisalign treatment won’t work for everyone. To see if it is suitable for your teeth, seek an opinion from an appropriately qualified dentist.

Invisalign Clear Aligners Vs Traditional Braces

When comparing Invisalign to traditional braces there are a few key differences to keep in mind.
Dental braces completely change the appearance of your smile. Invisalign is almost invisible.
Invisalign is more costly than traditional braces. This is because the trays have to be changed out every two weeks. The upside of this however is that each tray change is slight. Making the pain of adjustment less than compared to adjustments on dental braces.
Dental braces are usually worn for a period of around 2 years. With Invisalign, treatment is most often between 6-18 months.
Traditional braces are still considered the most effective solution for straightening teeth. Depending on the severity of your teeth misalignment, your dentist may recommend traditional braces over Invisalign clear aligners.
Invisalign trays can be completely removed for proper cleaning. This also allows thorough cleaning of your teeth and gums. With dental braces, they are bonded to your teeth with dental cement. This can make brushing and flossing quite difficult.

With traditional braces, you are required to visit your dentist regularly for adjustments. This ensures the teeth continue to move at the required rate. With Invisalign, you already have all the trays for each stage of adjustment. You simply follow the plan provided by your dentist.

Having traditional braces fitted is a somewhat surgical or invasive procedure. Any invasive procedure carries risks, Invisalign is non-invasive and therefore, safer.

Just as with any dental service however, Invisalign treatment should only be administered by an appropriately qualified health practitioner. Your dentist will discuss any possible risks before proceeding and ensure you are comfortable.
