Get Great Smile with Invisalign
Braces have been used for centuries to correct gaps, crowding, crookedness, or overlap in your teeth. However, the traditional unattractive metal braces can put you off the entire process, especially if you are an adult.
Imagine looking like a teenager for months and feeling conscious while smiling.
But fret not, we at Dental Krafts have the solution to all your problems. Wear braces but have them be invisible by opting for our clear aligners.
What are Invisible Braces?
Clear teeth aligners are a stylish but functional alternative to traditional braces that will guide your teeth into their correct positions. They use gradual force to move your teeth back into place without any need for metal wires and brackets.
Additionally, while they perform similar to traditional teeth aligners, they are not attached to your teeth. Instead, they are customized for your mouth and act like plastic caps. Moreover, they are removable and easy to take out when you want to brush, floss, or eat.
So, generally, you will begin with one set of invisible braces which your orthodontist will change as you progress according to your treatment.
Which are the Best Invisible Aligners?
There are plenty of choices in the market when it comes to invisible braces.
However, Invisalign makes for the best choice in invisible teeth braces! Backed by over two decades of research, it is the most popular brand for orthodontic treatment.
Moreover, every orthodontist offering an Invisalign treatment undergoes training for the same. And most importantly, an Invisalign treatment is suitable for every age group, from teens to those in their 60s.
What are Invisalign Braces made of?
One of the first steps of getting Invisalign braces is getting your teeth scanned. This allows dental experts to design your personalized pair of the best invisible braces available. You will also have regular orthodontist visits to check your progress and change your aligner pair.
The clear aligners themselves are made from flexible medical-grade plastic. This is a patented multilayer aromatic thermoplastic polyurethane material called SmartTrack which is perfectly safe and also biocompatible.
Is Invisalign Noticable?
The Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible. People around you might not even notice anything different with your teeth until you tell them otherwise. Additionally, they make a sizable aesthetic difference in comparison to usual metal braces.
So, if you were ruling out the option of getting teeth aligners for appearance reasons, Invisalign gives you the discretion you want.
What Problems Can Invisalign Braces Correct?
The Invisalign invisible braces efficiently treat the most common dental issues. However, some problems might require specialized orthodontic treatments depending on their severity.
Here is a list of issues that Invisalign can solve for you:
Not only do misaligned teeth make you conscious about smiling, but they also make eating and chewing very difficult. It occurs mainly during childhood and can be caused by many reasons. One of the most common and unavoidable reasons being genetics.
Genes can affect the size of your jaw, making it too small compared to your teeth. Additionally, habits like thumb-sucking or thrusting of your tongue can also contribute to this issue.
But with slight and steady pressure, Invisaligners can help fix your teeth.
Overbite and Underbite
Overbite is when your upper front teeth overlap your lower front teeth by a more significant margin than is normal. It can cause difficulties in biting and chewing and sometimes also cause pain in the jaw. On the other hand, an underbite is when your lower front teeth overlap your upper front teeth. This can give rise to speech difficulties and can cause the teeth to wear more quickly.
This too can be solved with Invisalign teeth aligners.
Openbite and Crossbite
Openbite is the condition where your upper and lower teeth do not meet when you close your mouth. In contrast, crossbite is when some of your upper teeth sit inside your lower teeth when you close your mouth instead of being outside. This can cause chipping of your teeth and faster wear along with receding gums.
With Invisaligners, you can correct both these conditions effectively. At the end of your treatment, you will have perfectly aligned teeth when you close your mouth, preventing further problems.
Crooked and Crowded Teeth
Having crooked or crowded teeth can make way for a hoard of other dental problems. Food particles can get stuck in the reduced space between your teeth, causing tartar and plaque build-up which will in turn cause gum problems or tooth decay.
But fret not, Invisalign braces can fix most crooked and crowded teeth based on severity and complexity and help you attain your perfect smile!
How Long Does Invisalign Take to Show Results?
Similar to traditional braces, Invisalign invisible braces are also a lengthy treatment. The exact duration of your treatment will be based on your specific requirements. Your Invisalign dentist at Dental Krafts will devise a plan for you, taking all factors into account.
For teenagers, the length of the treatment may vary considerably, whereas, for adults, an average treatment can last about 12-18 months. But irrespective of age, your teeth will show visible results within a few months of starting the Invisalign treatment.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
The advantages of an Invisalign treatment extend way beyond the aesthetics. Not only is there a sizable difference when you compare results before and after invisible braces, but they also provide the following benefits.
Invisalign invisible braces are made from smooth, flexible plastic. You might experience some discomfort initially, but you will get comfortable will their placement inside your mouth over time. They are perfectly safe to use as opposed to traditional teeth aligners.
Metal braces tend to have extruding ends and sharp edges that can irritate the tongue and the inside of the mouth. In some cases, it also causes sores and cuts. This is why Invisaligners are a safer option in comparison.
You can eat what you want
When you start wearing traditional teeth aligners, there are many food restrictions imposed for the course of your treatment. You cannot eat chewy, crunchy, sticky, hard foods or anything that requires biting into.
With Invisalign, however, there are no such restrictions. You can eat everything you want over the course of your treatment because you will not be wearing your clear aligners while eating. The removability of Invisalign allows you to enjoy your favorite foods without limitation.
Since metallic braces are attached to the teeth, they often obstruct cleaning activities like brushing and flossing which can lead to bad breath and dental uncleanliness.
With Invisalign, however, you face no such issues. You can simply pop them out before brushing or flossing and put them back on once you are done. You can also clean your Invisalign clear aligners separately.
Just use your toothbrush to ensure there is no build-up on the aligner trays.
Saves you time
Once you start your Invisalign treatment, you only have to visit your orthodontist once in six to eight weeks. On the other hand, opting for traditional braces requires monthly visits. Therefore, choosing Invisalign can save you time on trips to our clinics!
Invisalign is customized to your teeth, making it more effective in repositioning them than braces. No matter what the problem is, Invisalign is found to be more time-efficient and fruitful in shaping your smile. This means that the average duration of the treatment is lower for Invisalign as opposed to traditional aligners.
You can remove it for special occasions
You may have to attend an important event or function, but you feel self-conscious about wearing braces. With Invisalign, your braces are practically invisible. If you still do not want to wear them, you have the option to remove them and place them in the Invisalign case.
What to Ask Yourself Before Getting Invisalign?
An Invisalign treatment is a long process with its own set of responsibilities. So, you need to ask yourself these four questions before embarking on your teeth alignment journey.
Will I wear my clear aligners for the recommended number of hours every day?
Will I take off my Invisalign every time I eat something and brush my teeth before wearing them back?
Will I keep my clear aligners clean at all times?
Am I ready to wear full-time retainers after my Invisalign treatment?
If your answer to all of them was a yes, you are ready for your Invisalign journey!

One of the most crucial considerations while deciding on an Invisalign treatment is its cost and how it compares to traditional dental methods. On the surface, it can seem like traditional braces are less expensive, but if you only need a couple of teeth repositioned, the Invisalign cost is comparable.
With Invisalign, you also save money on other dental options like veneers and composite bonding by using Invisalign instead. It is hence a more natural and effective solution to enhance your smile.
