In our Pascoe Vale, VIC dental surgery, Invisalign is a popular way for many of our patients to straighten their teeth without the wires and brackets of traditional braces. Most people opt for Invisalign because they can improve their smile with nearly invisible plastic aligners. But many are unaware of the other benefits of Invisalign.
Invisalign Provides a Gentler Experience
Anyone who has had traditional braces can tell you that sometimes wires and brackets have sharp edges that can irritate the gums and soft tissues of the mouth. Invisalign plastic aligners are smooth, and they do not attach permanently to teeth or rub up against the gums or lips.
In addition, because Invisalign plastic aligners gently nudge the teeth into place with new aligners rather than orthodontic adjustments, there is less pain associated with Invisalign than with traditional orthodontics.
Invisalign Means Less Time at the Dental Clinic
Metal braces usually require regular trips to the dentist or orthodontist for adjustments, but this is not the case with Invisalign. Dr Amir Kiaee will generally provide patients with several sets of trays at each appointment so patients can change to a new tray without coming to the dentist for an adjustment. When an appointment is required, it is typically a shorter appointment than it would be for traditional orthodontics because there is no manual manipulation needed.
Invisalign Lets You See Your Progress as It Happens
When teeth are covered up by metal brackets and wires, it’s not easy to see the teeth as they are moved into their desired position. With Invisalign removable aligners, however, you can take them out and clearly see your teeth as they make the desired progress. This can be quite gratifying and often helps patients stay on track with compliance in wearing the aligners each day as prescribed.
