1. Higher comfort level.Wearing Invisalign aligners eliminates the need for metal or ceramic brackets adhered to the tooth surface and metal wires, reducing the occurrence of oral ulcers caused by friction during the treatment. Additionally, Invisalign aligners exert a gentler force compared to traditional braces, reducing discomfort during the treatment and providing a more comfortable teeth alignment experience for patients.
2. Easy to cleanMoreover, wearing Invisalign aligners makes it convenient for patients to maintain oral hygiene. In the Invisalign treatment process, there are generally fewer attachments compared to traditional braces, and the attachments are usually smaller and smoother. This reduces the likelihood of food residue getting stuck on the teeth after eating. Furthermore, after removing the Invisalign aligners, patients can perform their regular oral hygiene routines as they did before the treatment.
3. Aesthetic appearance.
Lastly, properly worn Invisalign aligners are snug and transparent, allowing patients undergoing teeth alignment to maintain a clean and presentable appearance.
1. Requires active patient cooperation
However, because Invisalign aligners can be freely removed by the patient, the duration and method of wearing them depend on the patient's cooperation. Therefore, achieving the desired results requires active patient cooperation. If the aligners are not worn for a sufficient amount of time or not worn properly according to the dentist's instructions, individual tooth movements may not keep up with the progress, resulting in an extended treatment time.
