Do Invisalign Aligners Really Work for Misaligned Teeth?

Posted by DR. CHRISTINE Y. LEE on May 12 2022, 03:59 AM

Having a straight smile has been made much more comfortable with Invisalign. Invisalign is a series of clear aligner trays custom-made to fit your teeth. Each aligner is worn for about 2 weeks. You change aligners about every two weeks, and your teeth gradually move into place. Over the course of treatment, each aligner should fit more comfortably than the one before it.

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign uses a series of clear aligner trays to straighten teeth. The trays are swapped out every two weeks to offer patients a more comfortable and convenient treatment process.

Invisalign aligners are completely removable, so patients can eat and drink whatever they want during treatment. They can also brush and floss their teeth normally to maintain good oral health and decrease the risk of tooth decay.

Invisalign vs. Braces – The Honest Comparison

Invisalign and braces are similar in that both straighten the teeth, but that's where the similarities end. Braces rely on metal brackets and wires to apply force to the right spot at the right time. Invisalign, however, uses a series of invisible, removable aligners that fit right over the teeth to straighten them.

Invisalign aligners are crafted from smooth, clear plastic, while braces are made from metal brackets and wires that stand out against the teeth. Braces are attached to the teeth with metal brackets, while Invisalign aligners can be removed for drinking, eating, and teeth cleaning.

Is Invisalign Right for You?

Invisalign is a great option if you're interested in straightening your teeth without wearing metal braces. Because Invisalign uses clear aligners, they're virtually invisible. Invisalign aligners are also easily removable, allowing you to eat whatever you want.

Invisalign aligners can also correct many common orthodontic issues, such as crowded teeth, underbites, overbites, and crossbites.

How much does Invisalign cost?

Invisalign treatment costs depend on many factors, including how many aligners you need. However, in general, Invisalign typically costs about the same as traditional braces.

Cost shouldn't be the only factor you consider when choosing between them.
