What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Ever wanted to get straighter teeth as an adult without the fuss of metal braces? Ever heard of invisible aligners? These are a type of clear dental aligner that is used to correct teeth alignment. It is made of a thermoplastic material that can be easily removed and replaced. Invisalign was first introduced in 1997 and has since become one of the most popular methods for teeth straightening. Great!

Looking for more reasons to consider using Invisalign Wagga? Read on for our team’s top 5.

They are invisible

Well, OK, they aren’t invisible but they are the closest thing to it. As mentioned, Invisalign Wagga is made of clear plastic that is custom-fitted to your teeth, so no one will be able to spot that you are wearing them. This makes them suitable for use at weddings, graduations, or other events where there will be lots of pictures.

They are comfortable

Many people associate orthodontic realignment in their adult years with the anticipation of excruciating discomfort. However, when it comes to wearing invisible aligners, you may be surprised to know that they are more comfortable than traditional braces. This is because they use a different mode of action and rather than pulling your teeth into the correct alignment, they gently push them thus allowing the entire experience to be more comfortable. Great!

They are easy to care for

Invisible aligners do not require you to invest in interdental brushes or excessive accessories to care for them. Instead, all you need to do to keep them clean is to remove them and rinse them under a cold water tap twice a day and before putting them back into your mouth after you have eaten. This means that you can take them out when you eat food, when you give talks or when you are consuming a beverage that is not cool water. Just be aware that for this aligner to work you have to wear it for 22 hours per day.

They are quick

Many people assume that because they are not fitted, invisible aligners will take longer to work. However, on average, they take around 3 to 6 months to straighten your teeth meaning that you can even plan your orthodontic treatment ahead of important events such as a wedding.

They are affordable

Once again, there is something of a myth surrounding invisible aligners where most people assume that they’re out of their price range. But due to their speed, how few dental check-ups are required when you wear them, and due to the lack of intervention needed, they are more affordable than you may think. So, contact our team today for a consultation if you are interested in using invisible aligners or want to discuss any other type of orthodontic tool.
