Misaligned teeth are usually corrected with braces among teenagers. However, many parents also face the same problem with their teeth and thus tend to use Invisalign® rather than braces. Invisalign® is transparent and it’s almost impossible for you to notice someone has it on their teeth. It lets you carry on with your regular activities. It is one of the best orthodontic procedures done by Dr. Joseph Manfredi.
How It Works
Invisalign® is very effective form of teeth alignment. It is transparent and should be worn for a period of 22 hours in a day to achieve positive results. You will delay the treatment if you do not wear the trays continuously. The time taken for the teeth to be properly aligned can differ between patients. It takes an average of a year for Invisalign® to correctly align the teeth on an adult. In teenagers, it can take up to 2 years. One advantage that comes with its use is that it’s comfortable and can be worn by people on any type of diet. Another advantage is that it takes less work to look after Invisalign® than traditional braces.
Most of the time, the cost of Invisalign® is similar to that of the metal braces. However, depending on how severe the misalignment is the cost can rise. Dr. Joseph Manfredi will need to evaluate a patient’s problem before he can advise on the best option to use for alignment, that is, between the metal braces and Invisalign®. There are instances where the metal braces are more advantageous than Invisalign®.
Metal braces are less comfortable compared to the Invisalign® aligners. There has never been a reported case of gum irritation and discomfort when a patient is using it. The trays are only removed if you want to eat and after that, you can brush your teeth and put them back on. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign® will not be uncomfortable to your cheeks.
Many people prefer Invisalign® over metal braces because of the convenience that comes with it while eating. Invisalign® users prefer not having to change their diets. They also like how the aligners can be removed easily for eating.
