Pros & Cons of Invisalign

Florence SC Invisalign

Your smile is your best accessory. If your smile is misaligned, you may feel self-conscious about showing it off! While Invisalign is not an option for all types is misalignment, many patients find that Invisalign is an option for them.

Invisalign is made of a transparent plastic that covers your teeth to slowly align them to a good position.


What are the Pros of Invisalign?

Because it is made of an invisible plastic, it is almost undetectable. It makes it more comfortable to speak when talking with people.

  • It is removable

During social events or occasions, you can remove the aligner from your teeth. Also, it can be removed when you want to eat.

  • It promotes better dental hygiene

Since it is removable, you can comfortably brush or floss your teeth after eating before putting the plastic tray back on your teeth.

  • It is comfortable

There are no wires or brackets that could cause mouth sores in your mouth.


What are the Cons of Invisalign?

  • Treatment could take a longer time if you do not follow provided instructions

This happens when you tend to remove the plastic tray every now and then.

  • Maintenance

You will experience different pressure on your teeth because you will have a new aligner every few weeks.

  • It does not apply to all kind of crooked teeth

Invisalign is not for everyone, especially if your teeth are severely  crooked.
