Misaligned teeth always pose great challenges to the concerned individual. This could range from low self-esteem to difficulty when feeding and bite some foods, or even pain when cleaning teeth. Misaligned teeth are often as a result of crooked teeth, protruding teeth, and so on so forth. Now, metal braces have been the most popular, most visible form of treatment for such kind of teeth. We all have memories of that childhood friend or colleague at work that used metal braces. Shiny, very noticeable, and always looking somewhat scary. But thanks to Invisalign, things are no longer the same again.
- Better appearance; unlike metal braces, Invisalign is less noticeable. Most of the Invisalign braces are made of a thin, clear material that’s hard to notice for a casual observer. You can thus enjoy your treatment program without worrying about others noticing.
- Easier to clean; Invisalign braces are easier to clean, some can even be whitened to enhance your smile to the fullest. Most Invisalign braces are removable, which means that you can clean them and let them dry as you sleep.
- More effective; another interesting fact about Invisalign is that it offers quicker, more certain results compared to metal braces. While metal braces tend to exert their pressure on teeth using some wires, Invisalign exerts pressure on almost the entire tooth. This leads to faster, more controlled results.
- Easier to customize; most orthodontists nowadays are using 3D computer-generated images to help design customized Invisalign braces. These images are extremely accurate, and can be designed for anyone; adults, teens, even children.
