Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners can fix the problems traditional braces promise to resolve, but Invisalign treatment does it in a revolutionary new way. As scientific advances have made treatments and procedures easier yet better in other fields, modern alternatives are making orthodontics easier and more accessible for millions worldwide. Invisalign clear aligners can correct numerous issues, including improperly spaced teeth, overcrowding, protruding teeth, faulty bites, difficulty chewing or speaking, and other orthodontic complications that make life tougher than it should be.

The rewards are many. Dental problems tend to cascade, and a gap can cause the shifting of other teeth. Overcrowding can make surfaces inaccessible to brushing. But aligners can nip these problems in the bud with less pain and inconvenience than traditional braces.

Tips to maintain top-notch oral health during your Invisalign treatment

Straight teeth and a winning smile are fantastic rewards, but Invisalign treatment offers more. For example, your aligners are removable, unlike traditional braces. To attain your smile-transforming results, you’ll have to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours per day. However, braces are mandated 24 hours a day, so Invisalign aligners offer another significant advantage by letting you remove them multiple times daily.

Due to this handy feature, Invisalign treatment has become among the most popular and effective orthodontic solutions today. You’ll be able to take out your aligners to perform proper oral hygiene routines – after all, you want your future smile to be as brilliant as it is straight.

To keep everything as hygienic as possible, be sure to floss, brush properly, and rinse. Even though Invisalign treatment provides plenty of liberties regarding convenience and efficacy, patients still need to adhere to cleaning habits to attain their best possible results.

By doing so, you can also help thwart tooth decay, which invisibly coats the teeth with a bacterial coating. If untreated or if hygiene lapses, this plaque becomes hardened and causes damage to the gums, teeth, and even jawbone. But Invisalign treatment's convenient nature means you can take out your aligners to help keep your teeth beautifully brilliant and clean.

Traditional braces may have made cleaning difficult, but Invisalign treatment removes that problem. You can take out your aligners for mealtimes (so you can eat your favorite treats) and for cleaning your teeth. The result? The opportunity to efficiently and effectively brush, floss, and rinse, staving off tooth decay and keeping your teeth as dazzling as possible.
