Adults and teens who need orthodontic treatment to correct crooked teeth or misalignment but are hesitant to commit to traditional braces can benefit greatly with the convenience that only Invisalign Tequesta can offer. Invisalign can discreetly straighten your teeth while minimally disrupting your daily life. It uses virtually invisible, 1mm thick clear aligners. Invisalign is a great option for mild to moderate orthodontic needs.
How Is Invisalign Different from Traditional Braces?
The major difference between Invisalign and traditional orthodontic braces is the fact that Invisalign is virtually invisible and is removable. In terms of comfort, aesthetics, and convenience, Invisalign is the ideal choice. Traditional braces are permanently attached to your teeth for months or even years at a time depending on the severity of your bite problems. Your food choices are also limited to traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are to be removed when eating, drinking, or cleaning your teeth. Your aligners must be worn 22 hours a day to effectively move teeth.
Who Can Have Invisalign?
Adults and teens can be good candidates for Invisalign treatment. However, responsibility and discipline are important qualities for Invisalign patients as these clear aligners need to be worn regularly for 22 hours a day, 7 days a week. Treatment may not progress effectively if patients are frequently eating and snacking or not wearing aligners as prescribed. Invisalign is also not recommended for patients with severe bite problems. Traditional braces are recommended for severe orthodontic issues.
