Limitations of Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign are a set of clear hard plastic aligners that fit on the teeth. Nowadays Invisalign preferred among young adults because they are invisible due to being clear. They are the best alternative to conventional orthodontic treatment.  Aesthetically it is supreme but has limitations as well for smile beautification procedures.

If your teeth badly shaped, or have gaps, cosmetic dentistry has various solutions: bonding (using tooth-colored materials), inlays, on-lays, crowns, etc. The result can be beyond your imagination. Patients who have these procedures done consistently say they wish they would have done it earlier.

The function of both Braces and Invisalign is to straighten teeth while improving your smile, aesthetics and overall oral health. Metal braces consist of a metal bracket that adhered to each individual tooth, and then connected by a wire which tightened in a way that will adjust each tooth gradually into its proper place. The wire held into place by small rubber bands.

On the other hand Invisaligners straighten your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customised, removable appliances called aligners. Unlike traditional metal braces, the Invisalign system has only been around for a little over fifteen years. When it comes to braces, metal braces are the most common and widely used form of braces. The most obvious difference between braces and Invisalign is that braces are not removable.

Invisalign is a next generation clear aligner system that straightens teeth and ensures your teeth look perfect and sparkle. Orthodontists have long been using the clear plastic aligners for many decades, but now it’s time for patients to experience the benefits of Invisalign.

The clear aligners have fixed teeth, unlike traditional braces, which come in two different shapes. The basic shape is just a basic plastic bracket that your teeth sit on and around. These brackets help them move into the correct position, but these braces have a few downsides. They have to be replaced every few months, and due to being completely clear, it can be difficult to see what is happening inside.
