Invisalign® Clear Braces

Braces are effective dental appliances that help to fix alignment issues with your teeth. However, the act of wearing braces, particularly traditional braces that are very noticeable, can bring attention to your problem, causing you embarrassment in social situations. Luckily, there is another option in the form of Invisalign, clear braces that offer the same alignment benefits without being overly visible. At The Dentists at North Cypress, we offer you these braces, allowing you to get back your smile without having to endure more embarrassment.

How Do Invisalign Braces Differ From Traditional Braces?

Invisalign braces are transparent, custom-made teeth aligners, which slowly shift your teeth into their correct position. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign braces do not use a metal material. Instead, they are made from a clear, invisible plastic material. They are ideal for people who are conscious of their appearance, especially for teenagers and adults.

Invisalign braces are removable, but they are worn all day except when performing tasks such as eating, brushing, and flossing. The long periods of wear help to increase the speed of the alignment. As a result, after every few weeks, adjustments to the braces might be necessary.

Advantages Of Invisalign

Invisalign clear braces have several advantages over the traditional braces:

• They are more aesthetically pleasing—one of the main benefits of Invisalign aligners is that they are barely visible, unlike metal braces which are very noticeable and unsightly. Therefore, if you are looking for a stylish option, Invisalign braces are much better compared to traditional ones.

• They are comfortable—traditional braces are comprised of metal chunks that press against the teeth and gums. The metal braces are also not removable—they must be removed professionally. On the other hand, Invisalign braces feature a comfortable plastic material. You can also remove them for brief periods, which allows your gums and teeth to relax. This makes them a better option regarding comfort.

• They offer faster results—Invisalign braces produce faster results, which means a shorter time wearing them. While traditional braces can take up to 5 years to offer the desired results, Invisalign can deliver results after just one year.

• They are safer—the metal parts found in traditional braces can cause injuries to your mouth by scratching or even puncturing your gums. On top of that, the braces work by exerting a high level of force on the teeth, which can cause problems such as cracking, fracturing, or chipping. Invisalign clear braces are, smooth (due to the plastic material), which minimizes any risk of injury.

Cost Consideration With Invisalign

Invisalign braces are custom made, better looking, and offer faster results. As a result, they are a bit more expensive compared to traditional braces. The cost factor is thus one of the things you will have to consider if you are considering Invisalign treatment. However, the benefits they offer makes them worth the extra cost.
