Invisible Braces are becoming more and more popular.
Gone are the days where fixed, metal braces were your only option.
More and more people are now opting for removable, Invisible braces instead. Today, we’re discussing the benefits of Invisible braces and why they’re a good alternative to the train tracks we used to know (and hate)!
First of all, let’s look at what Invisible Braces actually are.
Invisible braces are custom-made clear plastic aligners that help shift your teeth into the proper position. In most cases, the patient will be given a new set of aligners every two weeks which will guide the teeth into the correct position. Each set of trays help to shift the teeth slightly until they reach the desired positioning. Most patients can see results within as little as three months. The length of the course of the invisible trays depends on the severity of the misalignment to begin with.
How can Invisible braces benefit me?
“How Can Invisible Braces Benefit Me?” is something we hear all the time and the asnwer is simple. Invisible braces give you certain freedoms that metal braces don’t.
Invisible braces are removable. This means you can take them out when you’re eating. Which means there will be no food caught in your braces! Since they are removable, you also have the chance to remove them if they are causing you pain. You are meant to keep them in for a minimum of 20 hours per day. Pain from braces or retainer type braces is common but if you are experiencing discomfort, then you do have the option to remove them.
Invisible braces are just that. Invisible. Clear aligners are much less conspicuous than metal or fixed braces. They are made of thin sturdy plastic that is truly unnoticeable unless you point it out! This is a confidence booster for most people. Those with metal or fixed braces often try to hide their smiles. With clear aligners, there is no need! Invisible braces such as Invisalign keep you smiling every step of the way.
Invisible braces are arguably a lot more discreet than regular metal braces. Like we said, they are barely noticeable but there is also no additional need to carry around rubber bands, and wax and toothpicks. Removable braces come in a discreet case so that you can store them safely if you take them out. No need for horrible elastic bands here!
