Invisalign has been revered as an alternative to braces. However, it is always wise to look at the pluses and minuses of any treatment. Here, we will examine the pros and cons of Invisalign.
Virtually Invisible. If don’t want your child enduring ridicule from schoolmates, then Invisalign might be for them. They are designed to be invisible, all while straightening your teeth.
Removable. If you get food stuck in them, it will take more work to remove it, because you can’t take them out. If you don’t get to it, plaque can build up.
Since you can remove the Invisalign, cleaning now becomes easier, and eating certain foods that can get stuck is no longer a worry.
Comfortable. The metal in braces can rub against the side of your mouth. Irritation and sores can make them more uncomfortable than they already.
With a smooth surface that fits right over your teeth, Invisalign removes discomfort from the equation.
Safety. Health professionals have long held that metal braces release toxins inside the mouth. However, Invisalign is made with BPA-free plastic liners that carry no toxins.
You gotta stick with it. To get desired results, you need to follow the directions to the “T” as they say. They must be worn an average of 22 hours a day. If you can’t stick with that, then forget it.
Must be removed prior to eating.The only exception here is that you can drink only water with them on.
Frequent teeth cleaning. This is bound to produce good habits in oral health, because it’s what everyone should be doing in the first place. But it’s equally important when using Invisalign.
