Eating with metal braces can be quite painful, since the metal parts cause tiny injuries to the tissues in your mouth. Also, maintaining a thorough dental health regimen is also difficult with metal braces in the mouth.
Fortunately, there are plenty of advancements available in the field of orthodontics today, and you can wear braces and nobody will actually know that. Invisible braces give you the confidence that you need, and they are also extremely comfortable to wear.
For missaligned and crooked teeth, the invisible braces are perfect. There is also no age boundary when it comes to wearing invisible braces. They might be more expensive than their metal counterparts, but it is worth the investment.
The invisible dental braces are fabricated using aligners made of clear plastic instead of metal parts (brackets and wires). First and most important, invisible braces will not cause sores in your mouth like the metal braces.
This means you can eat without problems, but you will also be able to smile and talk with confidence, which are very important factors.
The invisible braces are custom tailored to fit perfectly your needs. You just need to go to the orthodontist and he will recreate your invisible braces using digital 3D imaging. Your braces will be perfectly comfortable, and while they are “invisible” they will straighten your teeth over time.
The invisible dental braces are detachable. This offers you yet another level of comfort because you can remove them anytime you want. For instance, you can stay away from dental cavities and gum complications, because you can perform a thorough dental hygiene of brushing and flossing after removing the braces.
Patients with metallic braces often develop cavities and even gum problems because they cannot floss and brush correctly the teeth with the braces on.
Since the invisible dental braces are more flexible than the metal ones, injuries to the teeth and surrounding tissues will also be eliminated. These braces also favor a more natural way of moving your jaw, eating, speaking, etc.
The treatment time required to straighten your teeth with invisible braces is approximately 1 year, but it can be even longer.
Unfortunately, not everyone is a candidate for invisible braces. After a thorough evaluation by your orthodontist, he will let you know if these invisible braces are efficient in your case.
The invisible braces are highly recommended especially in case of mild to moderate misaligned or crowded teeth. If your teeth are stubbornly crooked, only the metal braces have got that power it takes to shift them correctly into place, over a reasonable amount of time.
Get your checkup and see if you can become a candidate for invisible dental braces or not.
