What are the benefits of Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is an immensely popular option that many of our Parramatta patients use to fix crooked, misaligned teeth. Here are some of the most common reasons why Invisalign® is so popular at our dental clinic. 

Invisalign® is Discrete 

The popularity of Invisalign stems from the fact that they are virtually invisible on patients’ teeth. Invisalign are constructed out of a transparent plastic material, in comparison to traditional metal braces which are visible and unsightly. It is a great option for adults as they can smile confidently without worrying about any stigmas regarding orthodontics.

Convenience

A major advantage of Invisalign is that the aligners can be removed. You can take them out when you eat or brush your teeth, meaning you don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in between your teeth or having to brush them as often. This is because the requirement is that the aligners are worn for 22 hours of the day to be effective.

Comfort

 Invisalign are made of flexible, smooth plastic that are designed to fit your teeth closely, making them more comfortable than hard, metal brackets or wires under the traditional braces. You also won’t experience the deep, dull pain that sometimes occurs after brace-wires are tightened. 

Invisalign® Treatment is Fast 

With invisalign, it usually takes one year to one year and a half to get the straight smile. With traditional orthodontic treatments, it can take a long time (up to five years). Of course, Invisalign may not be able to be used in all cases, so ask your dentist whether the treatment is suitable for you.
