We are living in an evolving technology world surrounded by many wireless electronic devices. But when it comes to getting your teeth straightened, have you ever thought that you can get it done “wirelessly” without any wire at all? Thanks to the technological breakthrough called “Invisalign” that there is now a virtually invisible way to having straight teeth.
What is Invisalign and how does it work?
Invisalign uses a series of custom made and pre-planned plastic trays to straighten teeth in a precise manner. Invisalign patients will wear each set of trays for a period of two to three weeks to gradually move their teeth into a more desirable position and alignment.
Some advantages of Invisalign:
- Comfort Level: Besides being virtually invisible, the aligners are custom made and trimmed to fit each individual. There is no poking wire to worry about, and also no bracket to scratch the cheek and lips.
- Convenience: Invisalign allows you to enjoy and stay in tuned with your daily life and social activity without interfering with the progress of your treatment.
- No limitation or restriction on the kind of food you can eat
- Easy access for better hygiene: Because of the aligner’s removable nature, you can brush and floss your teeth better, and therefore are at lesser risk of having gum diseases or permanent damages to the teeth due to poor hygiene.
