What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign offers a number of benefits to eligible patients:

  • Discreet appearance: Using clear material, Invisalign trays are almost impossible to detect by onlookers. This enables patients to feel less conscious when wearing it.
  • More comfortable: Invisalign is made of smooth plastic and has no sharp edges that can cut the cheeks or lips of the patient.
  • Better Dental Hygiene: Invisalign is removable, which allows patients to brush their teeth and floss easier. This is in contrast with traditional braces, where food particles frequently get stuck on brackets.
  • Wider Food Choices: Due to its removability, patients can eat and drink whatever they want.
  • Less Maintenance: Compared to patients with traditional braces, patients with Invisalign require fewer visits to the dentist.
  • Shorter Treatment Period: Through consistent wearing of Invisalign, patients can usually expect straighter teeth within 6 to 18 months, depending on the severity of their orthodontic condition and adherence to the treatment protocol.

What Dental Problems Can Invisalign Fix?

Invisalign is used to treat mild to moderate dental problems through the wearing of trays that slowly realign the teeth or jaw. Basically, as the treatment goes on, pressure is increased, which moves the teeth into proper alignment and the correct bite. The following are some dental problems that can be treated using Invisalign:

  • Crossbite: This condition occurs when patients close their mouth and some of the upper teeth sit inside their lower teeth rather than on the outside.
  • Underbite: This is a dental alignment problem wherein the lower front teeth protrude in front of the upper teeth.
  • Open Bite: This dental condition happens when the top and bottom teeth do not meet when the patient closes his mouth, which shows an opening between the bottom and top teeth.
  • Gapped Teeth: Gaps refer to spaces in between two teeth that are not caused by missing teeth.
  • Overbite: This is characterised by upper front teeth that protrude or stick out beyond the lower front teeth.
  • Crowded Teeth: This happens when there is no space for teeth to grow properly, causing them to overlap or twist.
  • Teeth Development: Young patients can have a fixed set of permanent and baby teeth, and through Invisalign aligners, it can guide the baby teeth into proper alignment as they grow.
