What Are Invisalign Braces?
Invisalign is a series of clear, removable, plastic aligners. They are nearly impossible to detect when worn, as opposed to the metals in the traditional braces.
Each Invisalign tray is custom-made to your unique measurements and is worn for two weeks. The trays must be worn in the mouth for 20-22 hours a day and should never be removed unless you’re eating, brushing your teeth, or engaging in a sports activity.
The removable trays slowly move your crooked teeth place into place for straighter teeth alignment.
Problems Addressed By Invisalign
Orthodontics address a number of dental issues other than correcting crooked teeth. Their benefits go far beyond cosmetic enhancements. Take a look at some of the problems solved by orthodontics, including Invisalign.
Wide gaps between teeth.
When your jawbone continues to grow abnormally, the result may be too much space for your 32 teeth to fill in. Hence the wide spaces in between.
When the jawbone develops in complete opposite of the first example, the result is the crowding of your teeth. The lack of space causes your teeth to cram for space, hence the crowding.
When the upper jawbone is smaller compared to the lower jawbone, the result is the protruding of the lower teeth past the upper teeth.
This is the opposite of underbite. When the lower jawbone is smaller compared to the upper jawbone, the result is the protruding of the upper teeth past the lower teeth.
A correct bite function is when the arcs of your mouth meet together. When they are misaligned, the condition is called crossbite. In a crossbite, the upper teeth may fall inside the lower teeth when biting, or the teeth located in the on each side of the mouth.
Benefits Of Invisalign
Invisalign is very popular, particularly among adults. Their clear nature makes the wearer feel more comfortable speaking even while wearing them.
That is just one of the many benefits of Invisalign. Take a look at some of these benefits listed below:
- Rectify bite problems (malocclusion).
- Straighten crooked teeth.
- Nearly invisible making the wearer feel more comfortable.
