If you are looking for an alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign is it.
Clear aligners have become a popular alternative in recent years for people looking to straighten their teeth and fix bite issues. Of all the options available, Invisalign has emerged as one of the most popular ones, as it offers numerous advantages.
Read on to find out what makes Invisalign different and what the pros and cons of these clear aligners are.
Short for invisible aligners, Invisalign is a clear aligner made from a flexible thermoplastic material called SmartTrack.
When worn, Invisalign aligners fit snugly over your teeth and are significantly less noticeable than metal braces.
Invisalign aligners cost anywhere between $3,000 to $7,000 depending on the issues you need to have fixed, making them slightly more expensive compared to traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners need to be worn for 20 to 22 hours every day. The duration of the treatment, however, is determined on a case-by-case basis and will be different depending on the severity of the issues that need to be fixed.
Invisalign has a few pros and cons that you should know about before opting for them:
Invisalign is best for people looking for a discreet and more comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces.
After your Invisalign treatment is over, you are required to wear a retainer for 16 hours a day to ensure the teeth are set properly. Costs range from $100 to $500 per retainer.
