Invisible braces help in straightening your teeth without using metal braces. Being made of clear plastic, it involves wearing a series of customised clear aligners that move your teeth into the proper position. Various sets of specially moulded and different aligners are made by keeping in mind the need of each patient. Each set is worn for at least two weeks before they are replaced with the new one.
The aligners need to be worn for 22 to 23 hours a day to achieve the best results. They can be removed easily at the time of eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. Make sure all your adult teeth are there before you decide to perform this treatment.
The choice of braces depends on several factors such as – the complexity of the treatment, medical condition of the gums, time period for the entire treatment, and the cost involved. While you may choose the kind of braces that will suit your estimated budget, it is necessary to opt for a different system, as per the advice of your orthodontist.
There is a suitable solution to have straighter teeth without wearing metal braces. Popularly called invisible orthodontics, this kind of treatment gives you the choice of wearing a clear and removable appliance while at the same time, aligning and straightening your teeth.
This is a great option for the adults who are employed and do not feel comfortable wearing unsightly braces for several months. The latest technology behind invisible orthodontics has less treatment time for the patients, according on their individual cases.
Some benefits associated with this treatment are getting your teeth straightened within a short time and proper alignment of the top and bottom jaws. You have the flexibility of hiding the braces from others that make you feel less self-conscious when talking in public or socialising with friends, relatives and colleagues. You can even remove them at the time of eating or during special occasions so that they may fit with your lifestyle.
Having straighter teeth means a healthier mouth. When you have straighter teeth and your bite is aligned properly, you’ll find lesser gaps in between the teeth which prevent the problem of food getting trapped and the formation of plaque on the teeth, causing tooth decay. Invisible orthodontics is considered to be a long term investment to improve your oral and overall health.
