Invisalign braces are basically clear and invisible aligners that use transparent trays to push your teeth towards their desired position gradually. Invisalign treatment serves several purposes — getting straighter teeth, correcting misalignment and overcrowding, and even correcting bile misalignment.
Invisalign braces have to be regularly changed after every 2 weeks so that the new set of braces can continue applying pressure on the newly moved teeth. These braces apply gradual pressure on your teeth over an extended period to correct their position. In some cases, your teeth may have to first be polished to ensure the joint-teeth movement.
Proper alignment or straightening of the teeth is important for several reasons that go beyond the aesthetics as well. Misaligned teeth lead to immense grinding, which can lead to migraines and also cause bruxism. This can damage your teeth immensely and also lead to pain and discomfort.
Invisalign can also be manually removed whenever you want and you don’t have to visit a dentist. This is pretty fortunate because you can take the Invisalign aligners off before eating so they don’t get stained and then put them back on. This saves you the embarrassment of having your braces turn yellow after every meal. With traditional braces, you may have to think twice before indulging in certain dishes, but that’s not the case with Invisalign braces.
