Invisalign: The Clear Way to Move Teeth
If you’re considering Invisalign for yourself or your child, you’ve come to the right place (and it appears there are lots of you as the keyword ‘Invisalign Calgary’ is one of the most popular on Google) In this blog post, we’ll cover everything you need to know about this clear and convenient method of straightening teeth.
Invisalign has been a popular choice for orthodontic treatment since 2004, and for good reason. It is a tool that orthodontists use to move teeth into their proper positions, just like traditional braces. Whether you want straighter teeth or a better bite, Invisalign can help you achieve your desired results.
Advantages of Invisalign (and all clear aligners) Over Braces:
One of the biggest advantages of Invisalign and all other clear aligner brands (Angel, Spark, Clarity) is its convenience. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic and can be easily removed. This means you can continue to eat all your favorite foods without any restrictions. Whether it’s popcorn or chewy candies, you can enjoy them without worrying about damaging your aligners.
Another benefit of Invisalign is that it allows you to maintain your oral hygiene routine. You can brush and floss your teeth just like you normally would (twice a day), as the aligners can be easily taken out. This is especially important for preventing cavities, as good oral hygiene is crucial during orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign aligners are also compatible with other dental appliances, such as mouthguards. This is great news for athletes who need to protect their teeth during sports activities. You can simply leave your aligners in and wear a boil-and-bite mouthguard over them, ensuring both your teeth and your treatment are protected.
Parents often appreciate that Invisalign requires fewer visits to the orthodontist compared to traditional braces. With Invisalign, a computer program is used to create a treatment plan, and a series of aligners are made accordingly. This means you’ll typically only need to visit the orthodontist every ten to twenty weeks.
In contrast, braces require more frequent adjustments, resulting in visits every six to eight weeks.
Disadvantages of Invisalign:
It is important to note that wearing Invisalign aligners for about 22 hours a day is essential for effective treatment. They are not glued onto your teeth so you must remember to wear them and keep track of them.
You can remove them when eating or brushing your teeth, but it’s important to wear them at all other times.
