Important Invisalign Questions We Always Get Asked

There are patients that have similar thoughts about the Invisalign process.

Are you ready for the smile that you’ve always dreamed of? Are you prepared to align your teeth but have been on the fence about starting the process? Did you know there is a comfortable and almost invisible way to have a beautiful and straight smile that you’ve been dreaming of? There are plenty of patients that have similar thoughts about the Invisalign process, and we’re here to give you the most asked questions we’re asked about Invisialign technology and a few comparisons to the traditional metal braces. Read on for some important Invisalign questions our Baltimore customers ask us!

Does Invisalign Work Faster Than Braces?

While no bite misalignment is the same, the teeth-straightening process that uses aligners to move teeth into the right position is around 12 to 18 months. The same treatment with braces can take about 18 to 24 months. Why is this? In general, Invisalign takes much less time to align teeth and correct any malocclusions due to the force application and different processes of how aligners move your teeth. The forces inside the aligner can be customized in a way that they apply to all teeth as a whole, whereas braces move your teeth more segmentally or each tooth individually. The biomechanics of tooth movement are slightly different with custom aligners compared to braces. Also, there is no breakage or last second emergencies with Invisalign when compared to braces. When there are broken brackets, the treatment will take a pause, extending the time of treatment.

What Advantages Does Invisalign Have Compared to Braces?

This is another question we get about Invisalign. Invisalign is comfortable, clear, and very convenient. The clear aligners are inconspicuous, and they’re hardly noticeable and thus popular with adults and teens who want straight teeth but no “metal mouth.” Invisalign aligners are smooth and have no sharp edges or pokey wires. Also, there are no emergencies as there aren’t any brackets which could break off and cause poking wires and treatment pauses. If you’re busy, you don’t have to worry about visiting an orthodontist every four to six weeks. With Invisalign, appointments could be customized to your lifestyle, making it much easier to get orthodontics without much interruption of your schedule.
