How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign vs. braces.

When a dentist recommends treatment for a variety of dental problems including crowded teeth, overbite, underbite, crossbite, gap teeth or an open bite you do not need to get stuck with old-fashioned, traditional braces.

Invisalign straightens your teeth in the same manner yet without ugly wires and brackets. The series of clear, customized appliances are known as aligners and can even get removed.

Unlike traditional braces, the aligners are virtually undetectable which is a really great feature for those that are self-conscious about having their dental work get revealed every time they smile or chew on food.

Pros and Cons of Invisalign

Invisalign is a product of two decades of research and over 900 patents. It is considered the world’s most advanced clear aligner as it has helped 6 million plus patients.

It combines advanced 3D computer graphics technology with the science of orthodontics. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured for the person’s mouth, and at each stage of the treatment plan.

Therefore, the aligners are not only very discreet but also one of the most customized dental products on the market considering the highly sophisticated 3D printing technology.

The one and only true con of Invisalign is that the products generally cost more than your typical old-school braces. However, there are payment plans and financial assistance available to many patients.

Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

Braces have always been an issue of self-confidence with people that are forced to wear them. In our teenage years, it is hard to feel good about yourself when every time you smile you have a massive piece of shiny metal peering back at your peers.

When one is recommended to get braces later in life, the same negative feelings and lack of self-confidence may become apparent when a person doesn’t feel like they look professional or mature. It can lead to feeling down about your situation, avoiding smiling, or avoiding social encounters because you wonder what others think.

Invisalign is the Best Option

Are you ready to get the correct dental procedures without jeopardizing your self-confidence and feelings of self-worth? There is nothing to be ashamed of, and with Invisalign, you can enjoy life without wondering what others think of you.
