4 Exciting Things You Probably Didn’t Realize about Invisalign
The first thing most people think of when they hear “Invisalign” is the clarity of this amazing innovation, which makes it easy to conceal inside your mouth. While that is undoubtedly one of its top perks, it is far from the only one. In this blog, the team at Pearce Dental Group shares a few additional benefits that their Invisalign patients have come to realize throughout the course of their treatment.
Invisalign Makes Eating Easier
People with braces constantly get food stuck in the wires and brackets, which is a source of annoyance and embarrassment. With Invisalign, patients don’t have to worry about food getting caught, since they are allowed to take out the aligners during mealtime. This makes is possible to eat a wider variety of food, and with less cleanup time necessary afterwards.
Invisalign Can Tackle Difficult Alignment Issues
While it is true that early Invisalign models were designed to handle moderate alignment problems like overbite or underbite, the newer versions are able to address more serious and complicated issues with equal success. The dentists at Pearce Dental Group will examine your mouth and determine which kind of Invisalign will best get the job done.
Invisalign Means Fewer Trips to the Dentist’s Office
Patients with traditional braces wind up spending a lot of time in the dentist’s chair because they have to come in each time their braces need to be tightened. With Invisalign, dentists give patients multiple aligners at once, as well as a schedule to follow. Patients can then swap out their own aligners according to the schedule without needing to come in for an adjustment. While Invisalign patients will still have to visit us periodically to make sure the progress is on track, fewer total trips to the dentist is certainly the preferable way to go for people with busy schedules.
Invisalign Usually Works Quicker
Many patients assume that traditional braces are more efficient than Invisalign, but that’s not true. Most Invisalign patients complete their treatment in under 18 months, while patients with traditional braces can see the process last multiple years. By being able to change out their aligners more frequently than they could schedule orthodontic appointments, their teeth are likely to move into place more quickly.
