Invisalign is a series of aligners that are changed out about every two weeks. These aligners are normally worn for about a year and a half, and work to gradually shift teeth into a new, more desirable position. Misaligned teeth cause more than just cosmetic issues. Teeth that are misaligned are more prone to dental issues such as tooth decay. Misaligned teeth also have an effect on how you are able to bite, chew, and speak. Invisalign can be used to correct misaligned teeth so that the mouth is able to function properly. Unfortunately, Invisalign is not the perfect solution for all patients interested in getting their teeth aligned. Invisalign is only able to help with simple corrections. Complex corrections that involve multiple different movements of the teeth will most likely require traditional braces to correct.
Invisalign offers a much more convenient solution than braces. First off, the cosmetic appearance of Invisalign offers a natural looking smile. This is great for adults who are interested in getting their teeth aligned because having full metal braces as an adult can often be embarrassing. Invisalign aligners can also be removed at will. That means that you can take out your aligner when eating. This also means that you don’t have to restrict your diet. For many braces wearers, foods like corn and steak are off limits due to the dietary restrictions of braces. You don’t have to worry about this with Invisalign. Invisalign also only takes about one and a half years for full results, while braces can take up to five years to be effective.
If you have any more questions or concerns about whether you would be a good candidate for Invisalign clear braces, contact us today at Mayfair Family Dentistry. We are ready to get you on the fast-track to a smile you can be proud of.
