Invisalign is a revolutionary product that provides patients with an alternative method for straightening teeth versus the metal braces that have been the predominant option for many decades. The treatments consist of clear thermoplastic material, made which do not contain Bisphenol-A or phthalate plasticizers. The aligners are replaced every two weeks and they cause sufficient pressure on the teeth at controlled points in order to align the teeth into place.
The biggest benefit of the Invisalign treatment is, of course, that it is relatively less visible to people. Since they contain no metal parts, they are easier to keep clean and there exists less constraint on the types of foods and drinks that patients are allowed to consume during the treatment. Another general benefit is that Invisalign is typically less painful to implement than traditional metal braces, however there might be some discomfort at first while the pressure of the aligners are working on the teeth.
While Invisalign can be a great option for many patients, it should be noted that it is not always the appropriate treatment for some patients. If you are interested in corrective alignment of your teeth, the best first step is to visit your dentist to learn the best course of action for you. At our Brampton dental office, we have treated many patients with both Invisalign and traditional Metal Brackets and had amazing success stories. We would be happy to share them with you during your visit to the office.
