- What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a brand of clear dental aligners that snugly fit over your teeth. They gently and gradually align your teeth. It is used to treat a range of dental misalignment and other issues.
- Is Invisalign like braces?
People often think that it is a ‘special kind’ of braces. Well, the only similarity is that both braces and Invisalign are used to treat dental misalignment. However, the similarity ends there. Braces use wire and brackets to pull the teeth together. On the other hand, the aligners gently exert force on the tooth from multiple directions to align them.
- What Makes it the Better Option?
Invisalign has a number of advantages over traditional metal braces. Some of its biggest advantages are:
- Since it is made up of a clear material, it is hardly noticeable by people around. They would not even know that you have them.
- The treatment is more effective.
- It is more convenient.
- What is Invisalign made of? Is it safe?
These particular clear aligners are made up of a special material called SmartTrack. It is a clear, transparent material that is both highly effective and completely safe. The material is approved by the US FDA. It is BPA free and contains no latex or gluten. So, there is no cause for any kind of discomfort whatsoever.
