Here are some interesting facts about Invisalign:
Treatment time varies from patient to patient depending on the severity of their misalignment. Talk to our dentist to find out how long this process will take in your specific case.
One of the biggest factors that deter people from choosing braces is that metal brackets often stand out. Many may feel shy or self-conscious of their teeth with metal brackets and feel it may attract unwanted attention to them.
Invisalign, however, is virtually invisible. Made of a clear material, it easily blends in with your natural teeth and doesn’t stand out the way conventional braces do, making them an ideal choice for those who want a low-profile treatment.
The aligners are carefully custom-made to fit your needs. Our dentist at Quail Hollow Family Dentistry will guide you through the process of making your aligners and answer any questions you may have during the Initial consultation.
Easy to Maintain
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign braces are easy to clean. You can remove Invisalign braces and brush them whenever you wish. This helps maintain your oral hygiene. You can clean them by inserting them in lukewarm water so that it clears any residual bacteria.
Invisalign Braces are Detachable
Traditional metal braces are not detachable during the course of the treatment. You cannot remove them without our dentist’s assistance. On the other hand, Invisalign aligners can be removed whenever you need. Having the option to remove them is convenient.
The clear and smooth material makes it a comfortable choice. With no metal rubbing against your inner cheeks or lips, the feeling is very different than wearing conventional metal braces.
No Harmful Toxins
Metal braces are known for releasing harmful toxins into your mouth. This is another fundamental reason why patients have started to opt for Invisalign instead. Invisalign is made up of BPA-free plastic and does not have any dangerous toxins that can be released into your mouth.
Many who have used Invisalign have reported great results in the alignment of their teeth. It is a method that has proven efficient and convenient and thus has increased in popularity among those looking for a straight smile.
