Invisalign invisible braces have taken the dental world by storm. They are the new, modern alternative to braces. The two qualities that have made them the most attractive is that they are invisible and that you can remove them when you eat or brush. If these were the only advantages, they would be wildly popular. But here are a few more.
Invisalign can be used to treat most of the cases that are treated by standard braces, including overbite, underbite, crossbite, spacing and crowding. You can brush and floss normally with Invisalign. It is made of smooth, comfortable plastic which won’t cut the inside of your mouth. With office visits spaced between four and six weeks, you don’t spend as much time at the dentist.
For teenagers, up to six aligners are replaced free if they are broken or lost. Traditionally, teenagers are the most likely to wear braces. Because teenagers don’t pay as much attention to details as adults do and tend be “on the go” playing games and sports, the risk of losing or breaking the aligners could be a problem without the replacement policy.
Invisalign and Adults
Adults can use Invisalign, too. Many adults avoid regular braces because they don’t want to be embarrassed professionally. Invisalign is a perfect solution that isn’t noticeable. Even if they are noticed, they don’t provide as stark a contrast with your teeth as conventional braces.
Adults still suffer from the same problems as teenagers: overbite, underbite, crossbite, spacing and crowding. They can also suffer from crooked teeth, TMJ disorders and incorrect jaw positioning. If these problems are not addressed, they can cause gum disease, tooth decay, headaches, earaches and problems with biting, chewing or speaking.
