Invisalign in Fresno
If you desire straighter teeth but do not fancy the idea of wearing metal braces, Invisalign could be the solution you're looking for. The treatment works just as well as the tried-and-tested traditional braces but in a more sufferable modus operandi. Here are four reasons why Invisalign aligners are considered a better treatment for malocclusion than metal braces:
They are Invisible
Invisalign are acclaimed for having solved one of the oldest fails of metal brackets – conspicuousness. Made of clear plastic, the trays seamlessly blend in with your teeth and ensure your treatment remains discreet and personal.
They take shorter to produce results
Treatment period largely depends on severity of your malocclusion. Dentists however believe that Invisalign aligners are a quicker treatment if worn according to the instructions of the dentist.
They can be removed
Removability is one of the selling points of Invisalign. Unlike metal braces which remain affixed on your teeth throughout the treatment period of more than one year, Invisalign trays can be removed daily to facilitate proper brushing of teeth, eating and cleaning of the trays themselves.
They are easier to maintain
The fact that you need to wear a set of aligners for only two weeks reduces their chances of getting damaged. Additionally, removability allows for easier cleaning and maintenance.
They are less irritating
Metal braces are likely to irritate your gums lips and inner cheeks due to their multiple moving parts and sharp edges. Invisalign trays are more smoothly curved and may feel just like your natural teeth against soft tissues in your mouth.
