The Invisalign system has treated over 6 million patients worldwide and has been highly spoken of by celebrities such as Tom Cruise and Kathy Bates, who both underwent treatment for misalignment and spacing issues. Invisalign has attracted an increasing number of adult patients and below, we explore some of the reasons why.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is the leader in clear aligner orthodontics and is comprised of a set of transparent aligners that are custom made for your teeth. Each set of aligners is replaced every 2 weeks and the total treatment time varies between 12-36 months depending on the complexity of the issue. A continuously evolving treatment, Invisalign is now offering solutions for more complex cases with SmartTrack, a new aligner material that offers improved control of tooth movements and greater comfort.
No compromises when it comes to diet
More of us than ever are adhering to particular diets such as vegan, vegetarian, keto and raw food, to name a few. Unlike fixed brace models, which can restrict the ability to eat hard or chewy foods that may damage the brace or become stuck within the brace hardware, Invisalign aligners are removable. This eliminates any risk of damaging the brace and means that patients have complete flexibility with their diets.
Easier to care for your teeth
A further benefit Invisalign’s removable quality is that you can brush and floss as normal. One of the downsides to fixed brace models is the challenge they pose when it comes to brushing effectively, with food particles easily becoming stuck in the brackets. This can make keeping your teeth plaque-free somewhat tricky. With Invisalign, you can take care of your teeth by simple implementing your normal brushing and flossing routine.
One of the most aesthetic braces available
One of the main reasons adults used to put off undergoing the orthodontic treatment they needed was because there were no discreet brace options available to them. Invisalign’s transparent finish and custom design means they fit perfectly over your teeth making them both subtle as well as comfortable, so you can smile with confidence throughout your treatment.
