Invisalign are nearly invisible braces manufactured of translucent plastic and are a cosmetic alternative to conventional braces. The invisibility of the braces ensures an esthetically pleasing appearance throughout the corrective period; this is one of the main advantages of Invisalign over metal braces.
In the USA alone, dental records indicate that about nearly a million American adults aged 18 and above require alignment procedures and hence are compelled to choose braces.
Braces are recommended to correct overbite, substantial gaps between teeth, and crooked teeth. The neglect of such misaligned teeth structures is not only esthetically unappealing, but can also cause tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health complications because of the challenge of cleaning teeth effectively due to varying misalignments among teeth.
Despite the misconception that braces will only be effective during childhood and adolescent years, the success levels in adults indicate that the process is slightly longer during adulthood while the results are positive.
The need to wear braces over a longer term is unappealing to a majority of the adult population, especially because of the unattractive appearance of metal brackets and wires. A cosmetically pleasing option for adults seeking teeth correction is the Invisalign clear brace, which is less conspicuous and easier to maintain through the corrective period.
A high-tech laboratory prepares a set of Invisalign trays to suit each individual after an examination of the corrective requirement of the individual.
