Straightening your teeth used to mean years of metal braces and uncomfortable adjustments. But thanks to modern technology, there's now a more discreet and convenient way to achieve that perfect smile: Invisalign. With its clear aligners and innovative approach, Invisalign Edmonton, AB, has become the secret weapon behind countless straighter smiles around the world.
Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that has changed the way people achieve straighter smiles. Unlike traditional braces, which use metal brackets and wires to shift teeth into place, Invisalign utilizes clear aligners made of smooth, BPA-free plastic material. These aligners are custom-made for each patient using advanced 3D imaging technology and are designed to gradually shift teeth into their desired position.
Invisalign and traditional braces are two of the most common orthodontic treatments used to straighten teeth and correct bite issues. While both methods can effectively achieve a straighter smile, there are several key benefits to Invisalign that set it apart from traditional braces.
One of the most appealing aspects of Invisalign is its virtually invisible appearance. Unlike traditional metal braces, which use brackets and wires to shift teeth, Invisalign utilizes clear aligners made from smooth, BPA-free plastic material. This means that when wearing Invisalign, most people won't even notice that you're undergoing orthodontic treatment.
The clear aligners used in Invisalign Edmonton, AB, are custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly, providing maximum comfort while wearing them. The smooth plastic material also eliminates any irritation or discomfort often associated with metal braces rubbing against the inside of the mouth.
Additionally, unlike traditional braces that are attached to the teeth for the entire duration of treatment, Invisalign aligners can be easily removed for eating and oral hygiene routines. This allows for easier brushing and flossing without any obstructions from wires or brackets.
Traditional braces come with a list of food restrictions, as certain foods can get stuck in between brackets and wires or potentially damage them. However, with Invisalign aligners being removable during meals, you have the freedom to enjoy all types of foods without worrying about damaging your orthodontic appliance.
With traditional braces, adjustments need to be made regularly by an orthodontist every 4-6 weeks throughout the course of treatment. On the other hand, with Invisalign, patients typically only need to visit their orthodontist every 6-8 weeks for check-ups and progress updates.
While treatment time varies for each individual, Invisalign typically has a faster treatment timeline compared to traditional braces. With the use of advanced technology and 3D imaging, Invisalign aligners are custom-made to gradually shift teeth into their desired position in a more efficient manner.
