Did you hear about Invisalign? Not yet?
Invisalign is one of the greatest technological advancements in dentistry. This technology has elevated the art and science of orthodontics (commonly known as braces) to a whole new level. Invisalign opened a whole new market with a whole new target audience, which is adults. 10 years ago, you never would have heard of adults seeking braces to fix their teeth. Nowadays, however, adults demand braces just as much as children, if not more, all thanks to Invisalign technology.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a new form of braces. The idea came from people hating the looks of traditional metallic braces with metallic wires and colorful elastics on them, especially adults. Invisalign took care of all that.
Instead of braces, the patient would wear a series of aligners. Aligners are transparent plastic molds that are custom made for each patient to fit the outer surface of their teeth. This means that there is nothing attached to your teeth, so no more worrying about the looks, and the can be removed in times of need like when you have a special occasion. Not only that, but it elevated the oral hygiene of braces wearers as well, who all know what a nightmare it is to clean their teeth properly.
Invisalign can take care of almost any problem related to the alignment of your teeth. The aligners act through pressure on specific areas of the tooth to properly move it.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
As said before, the looks are great and the oral hygiene is far better than traditional braces. Computers are used to formulate the treatment plan and aligners, so minimum chances of human errors. In addition, you would need far fewer visits to your orthodontist, may be once every 2 months and sometimes even less than that. Finally, the treatment time is quite smaller and you could end up with a gorgeous smile in as little as a year.
Can Invisalign fix my gap teeth?
They absolutely can. In fact, one of the first problems tackled by the Invisalign technology was gapped and spaced teeth. In the earlier days of the technology’s development, it could only treat gap teeth, but now it can take care of anything.
That being said, it all comes down to the origin of the problem. In most cases, the jaw bones are in great shape and the teeth are a bit small for the jaws. Invisalign can take care of that .. No problem. However, if the origin of spacing was the jaw bones themselves (which is very rare), then surgery would probably be needed. You would need to consult a specialist to know the root cause of the problem.
There is no doubt that this technology is revolutionary. It established a great demand in the past few years, and more than earned its rights.
