Are You Thinking About Choosing Invisible Braces?
If you’ve considered teeth alignment then the chances are that you have considered invisible braces, because compared with traditional braces, clear braces offer a whole range of advantages. But what are those advantages, and why might some people decide against wearing invisible braces, despite all of the benefits?
Obviously the first advantage which most people think about is the fact that invisible braces are virtually invisible. Traditional braces are certainly very obvious even from a distance, and many people feel rather self-conscious wearing metal wire braces. Traditional braces offer very little in terms of a positive appearance, and so for many people the single most significant aspect which they consider when choosing between traditional braces and invisible braces is the overall appearance throughout the period of time they are required to wear a brace.
But this actually brings up another reason why many people are choosing invisible braces such as those from a company called Invisalign. Because when you’re wearing traditional braces it’s a commitment you will need to remain with for several years. Typically the process of teeth alignment using metal braces can take anything from two years to four years, depending upon the amount of alignment necessary. Clearly this is a very significant commitment, and not one entered into lightly.
By contrast those braces from Invisalign are not only clear, but manage to achieve the same end result in a much shorter space of time. Instead of having to wear braces for several years, the entire process is usually complete within just a few months. So for many people the key advantage is the fact that Invisalign braces are virtually undetectable, and many other people come to the decision that clear braces are the right choice for them simply because of the fact that the entire process takes so little time.
Although I say that traditional braces and invisible braces achieve the same end result, this isn’t entirely accurate. In fact accuracy is the key here, because whereas traditional metal braces encourage the teeth to move to a new position based almost entirely on the dentist’s intuition and guesswork, Invisalign braces are built by computer, according to a highly sophisticated three-dimensional virtual reality model of the teeth, both before the process, and as they will appear at the end of the process. This means that the end result is far more accurately known, removing guesswork from the equation.
Yet another advantage, and one factor which many people find helps them make up their mind once and for all is that invisible braces can be removed at any time. Most metal or wire braces are fixed in semi-permanently, meaning that the wearer is unable to remove the braces themselves. Clear braces or invisible braces can be removed quite easily at any time, so that the wearer is able to benefit from a degree of versatility and flexibility.
So if they happened to have an important photograph being taken, such as at a wedding, school photograph, graduation photograph or other important occasion, the braces can be removed so that they are not a permanent feature for posterity. Similarly for eating certain foods, and even simply for cleaning teeth properly, being able to remove clear braces can make all the difference.
But this brings us onto one of the reasons why people sometimes decide that Invisalign braces are not for them. Having braces wired in and fixed to your gums so that you cannot remove them takes away the temptation to remove the braces. With invisible braces from Invisalign require a good deal of discipline is needed for the wearer not to be tempted to keep removing the braces, possibly forgetting to put them back in again afterwards. Failing to keep the braces in for a minimum of 23 hours out of every 24 hour period could end up with the entire process having to be started from scratch.
