Greenwich CT Invisalign Advantages
As a top provider of Greenwich CT Invisalign, Dr. Fu believes whole-heartedly in the power of this relatively new orthodontic tool in delivering amazing results for our patients. These clear, medically approved hardened plastic retainers move the teeth slightly, week by week, but have been moving the world of orthodontics quite quickly since their invention. Today we will be reviewing some of the ways that clear braces, such as Invisalign, have advantages over the traditional metal braces we have all known and seen for years.
The first advantage of the Invisalign system over traditional braces is the reason most patients prefer these retainers in the first place: their appearance. The mouth full of metal and bands look can be a thing of the past thanks to Invisalign, where most people, besides your doctor and yourself, may not even be able to tell you are receiving treatment. You wear the clear retainers most of the day, except while eating or drinking, so do not suffer from embarrassing mishaps such as food being stuck in the brackets either.
In relation to the makeup of the devices can also come issues of safety. In the structure of traditional metal braces, you have brackets and wires, which especially at first placement, can cause the tongue to wander and potential abrasions to result. With Invisalign systems, there is no extra pieces of material or overhang, nor room for harm caused by them. Your retainer is specifically molded to your teeth and fits you perfectly, without discomfort. In the event you need to remove your retainer for any reason- you can at any point. This flexibility is also a big benefit over braces, where only a trained professional can remove your device after treatment is complete.
Lastly, time of treatment with Invisalign is much shorter than regular braces. Where the later may take from 2 to 4 years to straighten your teeth, the former can only take a year or 2 to be effective.
