What are the Pros & Cons of Invisible Braces?

Invisible Braces have become the go-to solution for almost all dental alignment issues. Their greatest strength is the ease of use and convenience they offer. While metal braces have been around for decades, there has always been an issue with poor aesthetics and longer treatment times. Aligners have fixed all of these problems in a single stroke, giving people all over the world the confidence they need to achieve their ideal smile.

What exactly are Invisible Braces?

Invisible aligners are plastic trays customized to your teeth and mouth shape that are designed to push your teeth in the desired direction to give them the perfect shape. 

 Invisible aligners are quickly becoming popular treatments for dental crowding, overbite, underbite, diastema, and other similar issues. These devices fit perfectly on your teeth and quickly and efficiently provide the desired solution.

You can visit your orthodontist for any teeth alignment needs and get a better understanding of your teeth condition as well as the prescribed aligners in a matter of days. These aligners are customized to your specifications and offer a far more effective solution for all of your dental alignment needs.

Let’s take a look at some of the benefits and drawbacks of clear aligners.

Advantages of Invisible Braces

  1. Simple to use

There is no special procedure required to use clear aligners. It’s as easy as putting a hat on your head. This is not an exaggeration; they are that simple to use. Simply remove the aligners from the kit and place them on your teeth to begin treatment.

2. Painless

 Clear aligners fit snugly but comfortably over your teeth, gradually pushing them together. While there may be some niggle in the early days, once your teeth are accustomed to the aligners, it will be smooth sailing.

3. Rapid outcomes

Traditional braces can take anywhere from 12 to 18 months to work effectively and put your teeth in place. Aligners, on the other hand, begin to produce results in less than 6 months.

4. No dietary restrictions

One of the biggest benefits of wearing clear aligners for teeth is that you don’t have to worry about sticking to a strict diet. You can easily remove aligners while eating and replace them once you’re finished.

5. Customized solution

There is no one-size-fits-all solution for any treatment, and clear aligners effectively adhere to this concept. Each patient receives personalized aligners that are designed to fit their teeth and work towards treatment.

The disadvantages of Invisible aligners

  1. Must be worn for 22 hours

For effective results, aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours per day. To get better treatment, patients must practice certain disciplines and adhere to a schedule. This may not be possible for everyone, and it has been observed that patients frequently forget to replace their aligners after taking them out during a meal.

2. Not recommended for severely crooked teeth –

Certain cases are beyond the scope of aligners’ expertise. Severely crooked teeth and alignment issues caused by jaw structure necessitate surgical intervention or other methods, and aligners are ineffective in these cases.

3. More expensive option

There is no doubt that aligners have proven to be extremely effective in treating a wide range of alignment issues. However, one of their major disadvantages is their pricing. Patients must be prepared to pay more than they would have paid for braces or veneers.
