Invisalign - Braces
Following improvements in CAD/CAM technology, the straightening of teeth without braces through the use of clear aligners (Invisalign) is now the preferred way to an aesthetic smile. There are over 4 million Invisalign patients now smiling with confidence.
These clear aligners are comfortable to wear as they are made of smooth and thin plastic and yet are sufficiently strong enough to move and straighten your teeth. Because the aligners are removable, you can continue to eat your favourite foods while brushing and flossing normally to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Virtually invisible in the mouth –even close friends may not notice the ongoing treatment unless you tell them. Speech is not adversely affected with the aligners in place.
Comparision Table : Invisalign Versus Braces
|Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without wires or brackets.||Fixed braces use wires and brackets to move your teeth into straighter alignment.|
|Nearly invisible.||Most fixed braces are noticeable.|
|Removable during treatment.||You cannot remove fixed braces until treatment is completed.|
|Treatment doesn’t involve metal that can irritate teeth and gums.||The metal wires and brackets can cause mouth irritation.|
|Allows you to brush and floss normally during treatment.||Fixed metal braces hinder the ability to reach the entire tooth/gum area when flossing.|
|Provides a clear defined and virtual treatment plan from the start to the completion of treatment.||Although your dental practitioner has a clear, defined treatment plan, you will not be able to see what your teeth may look like during and after treatment.|
Since the 1990s, Alpha Dental Group has been designing beautiful smiles with functional appliances, metal, ceramic, and Damon braces. These traditional appliances are still ideal in complex malocclusion, where there are skeletal/bone issues, severely misplaced or rotated teeth, etc.
