Lately there have been a lot of articles and reviews about a new cosmetic dentistry treatment to straighten teeth called Invisalign. Most Invisalign reviews make this teeth straightening treatment sound much less embarrassing than those old fashioned traditional braces that children and adults have been wearing for decades. Before we get into what these Invisalign reviews have to say about this treatment option it will be helpful to understand what this treatment is and how it is supposed to work.What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign custom made teeth aligners are plastic trays made to fit the shape of your teeth that you wear for 22 hours of each day. These trays will over time shift your teeth to give you that perfect smile. Since these trays work over time (usually 6 to 18 months) they need to be replaced every two weeks. Each new tray shifts your teeth just a little bit more until your teeth are aligned just like wearing those metal braces would do. In fact, many wearers refer to their Invisalign braces as invisible braces.The Conclusion from Invisalign Reviews
Most of the Invisalign reviews explain the benefits that the Invisalign treatment has over those traditional metal braces and admittedly there are quite a few benefits that make this treatment worth considering. These benefits include:
Comfort. Invisialign braces do not have the sharp edges that metal braces have they do not cause irritation or discomfort.
Convenience. While you do have to wear these braces 22 hours a day you can take them out for meals, and to brush and floss your teeth. This allows you to have cleaner teeth and you don’t have to worry about different foods sticking to those traditional braces.
Almost invisible. The fact that these braces are almost invisible makes wearing them less embarrassing for both children and adults. Children don’t have to worry about getting teased by their peers and adults who did not have their teeth straightened as children can now do so without feeling as though it affects their professional work lives.
While Invisalign works in most cases there may be some problems that these invisible braces are not designed to treat so you need to ask your dentist if you are considering this teeth straightening option. The good news is that most dentists who offer these treatments do give a free consultation so if finding out if the treatment is right for you won’t cost a penny. However, the treatments themselves can be costly so be sure that your budget will allow you to use this option.
Invisalign seems like a good teeth straightening treatment and the reviews all make a good case of why people might want to choose this way of straightening their teeth. However, the price of these treatments might mean that Invisalign is not readily available to all who would like to choose this option over metal braces.
