Invisalign® Is a Popular Option for Teeth Straightening

Invisalign Scottsdale, AZ

Invisalign® is a teeth straightening treatment method that uses clear aligner technology to gradually move teeth into the proper alignment. Invisalign® has grown in popularity over the past decade, and this review discusses the reason for its rising popularity.

Invisalign®: what is it and why is it popular for teeth straightening?

Invisalign is popular for several reasons. One of the more notable reasons is that they offer a more discreet treatment option. This is because the aligners are clear, and others are not likely to notice you are wearing them. The following is an in-depth review of Invisalign for a straighter and more attractive smile.

Invisalign® for teeth straightening explained

Invisalign is a form of clear aligners treatment. This method of teeth straightening involves transparent trays that are worn over teeth. They slowly move teeth into their proper position, and new aligners are provided as the patient’s teeth alignment improves. The aligner trays are removable and hard for others to see while they are worn. Due to the transparent and removable nature of Invisalign aligners, many are choosing Invisalign over alternative solutions.

Why is Invisalign® a popular choice?

Invisalign is a popular choice because of the discreet nature that the treatment provides. Patients often choose Invisalign so that it is not noticeable that they are going through Invisalign treatment. In addition, the treatment times with Invisalign are often faster when compared with popular alternatives. Many also appreciate having the ability to remove the aligners when doing so is necessary.

What are the alternative solutions for teeth straightening?

The most notable alternatives to Invisalign are clear braces and traditional braces. Clear (ceramic) braces are more discreet than metal braces, but they are not removable and are still noticeable to others. Traditional metal braces are perhaps the most ideal for severe misalignments, but they are not discreet or removable.

How can I decide if Invisalign® is right for me?

Invisalign is ideal for anyone with mild to moderate teeth or jaw misalignment that wants to straighten their smile discreetly. Due to their discreet nature and the ability to remove the Invisalign aligners, they are popular among older teenagers and adults. The best way to determine if Invisalign is the best option is to schedule a consultation with a dentist that offers treatment.

How long does Invisalign® treatment take?

Invisalign treatment can take as little as six months or as long as two years, depending on the severity of the misalignment and how well the patient follows the treatment plan without any setbacks. On average, Invisalign treatment is shorter than is the case with metal or ceramic braces.

Four reasons to consider Invisalign® for an improved smile

Below are four reasons why dentists often recommend Invisalign for patients that have a mild to moderate misalignment.

Invisalign® produces faster results on average

Invisalign straightens teeth in as little as six months. On average, patients see a faster treatment time with Invisalign than with braces treatment. This means you can achieve your ideal smile faster and reduce the time you need to wear the aligners.

Invisalign® aligners are essentially invisible

As the name implies, Invisalign aligners are very difficult for other people to see. This means you can straighten your teeth discreetly, whereas metal braces are far more visible. For older teenagers and adults who want a more natural-looking smile, this is a huge advantage.

Invisalign® aligners can be removed at any time

Patients also have the ability to remove the Invisalign aligners at any time. In fact, they must be removed while brushing their teeth and eating. For rare instances that are important to the patient, such as giving an important speech or presentation at work or school, the aligners can also be removed. However, with that said, they should be worn approximately 22 hours of each day to achieve optimal results.

Invisalign® helps you protect your enamel during treatment

As mentioned, the aligners are removed during the patient’s oral care routine. This makes it easier to remove plaque and tartar that accumulate on teeth enamel. With braces, on the other hand, stains are more likely to develop around the brackets.
