While considering Invisalign solution for straightening your teeth every patients has this thought What are Invisalign Pros & Cons?
If Invisalign system is right for them, if it is ok to invest so much time, money & effort in Invisalign solution. Are there better solution?
► NEARLY INVISIBLE
Top reason patients get Invisalign aligners over traditional metal braces is because they are almost invisible! Having crooked teeth may mean feeling bad about your condition and when you trying to set thing straight (literally), you certainly do not want to draw anyone’s attention. Peers of children & adolescents may make fun of braces but not with Invisalign. Adults wearing braces is so uncommon that Invisalign is practically the only solution for adult braces.
Unlike traditional braces which remain on until the entire process is done aligners can be removed. This makes cleaning super easy after any meal. With traditional braces food easily becomes lodged around and in between metal brackets, making the cleaning process much harder for the bearer and bringing an unwanted buildup of plaque.
Conversely, Invisalign aligners are easily removed for proper cleaning, making sure to inhibit any plaque damage to your teeth.
Another hailed benefit of having removable aligners is the ability to eat what you want…no exceptions! Popcorn, caramel, corn on the cob.
Metallic braces not only cause more emergencies from a poking wire or broken bracket, but they are also just plain uncomfortable. Having metal continually rubbing up against the side of your mouth can produce irritation, discomfort, and sometimes even open sores.
Invisalign boasts a smooth plastic surface that produces no discomfort to the mouth lining.
The release of toxins in the mouth through metal braces has long provided controversy to various health professionals. However, Invisalign provides a solution to the whole issue with BPA-free plastic liners, free of any harmful toxins.
► Requires Excellent Cooperation
If you don’t follow your dentist’s rules for your Invisalign aligners, you may not see the desired results. The aligners must be worn an average of 22 hours a day. If you tend to be a rule-breaker, Invisalign may not be for you.
► Aligners Need to be Removed Before Meals
As mentioned above, you must remove the aligners before eating or drinking anything but water. While some may consider this a nuisance, we have heard of patients discovering an added benefit of weight loss as they tend not to snack as often during the day.
► Frequent Teeth Cleaning
Invisalign requires a focused attention to oral hygiene. You must brush and floss thoroughly after any food consumption. While this may seem an annoyance at first, many patients have seen an unexpected benefit of improved oral health and teeth whitening during Invisalign treatment because of the frequent dental cleaning.
► Difficult Cases
There may be certain cases where the Invisalign may not work as a perfect solution. Cases where mis-alignment/crossbite or overbite is more, Invisalign may not be recommended. An Invisalign Certified Orthodontist is your best bet in such cases.
