5 Amazing Invisalign Facts

Crooked teeth can be a confidence killer. Whether your teeth protrude, are spaced apart, appear wonky, or are generally crowded, you probably don’t feel good about your alignment problems. 

While misaligned teeth can harm the appearance of your smile, there are oral health concerns associated with them too. Overcrowded or even gappy arches can be breeding grounds for plaque and tartar causing bacteria, putting you at increased risk of tooth decay. 

Not only that, but misalignment also often means bite problems. This causes jaw issues that lead to pain in the neck, shoulder, and head. Straightening your teeth isn’t always a cosmetic concern, sometimes it’s important for your overall oral health.

In the past, fixing this type of issue meant wearing a cumbersome fixed metal brace. Thankfully, these days there’s an easier way to a perfect smile; Invisalign. Here are five amazing facts about the Invisalign treatment offered at Canon House.

1. Invisalign Is Barely Visible

Invisalign is a revolutionary removable clear aligner system that straightens your teeth without the need for a fixed appliance. Because they’re made from transparent material, they’re barely visible without close inspection.

Made from safe medical-grade plastic, Invisalign aligners are comfortable and lightweight. Not only will they be barely noticeable to anyone else, but you’ll hardly be able to tell they’re in too.

2. You Can Eat What You Like

Because you can remove your Invisalign aligner, you won’t have to worry about the common problems experienced by fixed brace wearers. Some of the most common problems people have with braces are food getting lodged between the wires and the teeth and the fact that they’re hard to keep clean.

Invisalign aligners can be removed effortlessly, allowing you to enjoy your favourite meals and brush your teeth easily. As long as you keep your aligner in for at least 22 hours a day, your treatment will be effective.

3. The Invisalign Treatment Process Can Be Quick

Your aligners work by gently exerting pressure across all of your teeth. Your custom-made aligner is perfectly designed to make small, subtle movements. But during the course of your treatment, you’ll replace your aligner every couple of weeks.

Each new aligner is slightly different to the last. It builds on the movement made by previous aligners and takes your teeth closer to becoming perfectly straight. Often, you’ll start to notice the changes after a relatively short period of time. 

Depending on the scale of the alignment, you may only need to wear your aligner for a year. 

4. Invisalign Is Suitable for All Ages

There’s a commonly held belief that orthodontic work needs to be carried out when you’re a teenager. You may have slipped through the net and missed out on getting your teeth aligned when you were a teen, or you may not have actually needed the treatment until you became an adult. 

Whatever your situation, it’s never too late to enjoy a straighter smile. Invisalign works just as well regardless of your age. Best of all, because the aligners are transparent, nobody needs to know you’re getting the treatment.

5. Invisalign Works for a Range of Alignment Issues

You may think that because you have a complex malocclusion you’ll need fixed braces to address it. That’s not the case. 

Invisalign isn’t just great at dealing with simple alignment problems, it can correct a host of complex bite issues such as overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite, overjet, and more.
