Fixing Three Myths about Invisalign

Fixing Three Myths about Invisalign

Invisalign therapy is an advanced method of straightening teeth with almost invisible dental appliances. As with most new technologies, the truth about Invisalign is escorted by myths and misunderstandings because people do not know much about it. If you are looking at Invisalign as an orthodontic alternative, you will want to know the truth behind the dental device. Here are three myths about Invisalign, and why they are wrong.

Myth #1: Invisalign Therapy is less effective than braces.

Truth: There is a 96% patient satisfaction rate for Invisalign treatments because it will correct crowding, spacing, overbite, and under bite just as effectively as braces. However, it is true that Invisalign Therapy does not work for every patient. Consult your doctor before you try Invisalign.

Myth #2: Invisalign is impossible to clean.

Truth: Invisalign treatments are basically a series of trays that slowly set your teeth. The trays are removable, providing for easier cleaning, healthier gums, and decreased risk of abnormal wear. As long as you are consistent, your teeth will be just as healthy as they could be with regularly-cleaned braces. Just make sure to remove your Invisalign tray before you eat, brush or floss.

Myth #3:Invisalign needs constant care from your dentist.

Truth: On the contrary, visits to your dentist will be quicker and less frequent than if you were to wear traditional braces. According to Newington Family Dentistry, “patients will only need to visit their Invisalign provider once a month to check on the progress being made.”

Invisalign is an excellent alternative to braces, and like most technologies, it is constantly being improved. Straightening teeth has never been clearer with this orthodontic alternative to braces.
