Things about Invisalign orthodontic treatment. Is it effective?

As we know Invisalign is one of the most popular types of orthodontic treatment in these days. How about you? Are you considering Invisalign braces for yourself? Invisalign will help you have well aligned teeth without using uncomfortable metal brackets’. As its name suggests, it is invisible! Even if Invisalign cost Singapore is quiet high, but Invisalign is becoming more and more popular and a lot of patients choose this instead of metal brackets. Lets find about why people love to stick to Invisalign though this article.

As a doctor, I agree that Invisalign is an innovative aligner, which is a perfect combination of 3D printing graphics technology and science of orthotics. Like any other metal brackets do, Invisalign also helps patients get straight teeth with aligners designed to change and move small parts of the teeth to the desired positions set up by a dentist. Every aligner is planned and created to be suitable for each patients teeth structure at each stage of the Invisalign, and patients will change ‘old aligners’ to new aligners in every 2 weeks.

Also, Invisalign braces treatment is a very flexible orthodontic treatment that allures to lots of patients. Some patients have fear and worries about wearing traditional metal braces as they are obviously visible. However with Invisalign, which with clear aligners these problems are no longer problematic. Also, Invisaligns are removable. 

Invisalign braces treatment is more expensive than other aligning devices. Some dental clinics in Singapore provide cheap invisalign under Invisalign package but still relatively expensive compared to traditional braces. This is because Invisalign is designed using a very advanced 3D scanning and printing technology with high quality materials to make the device flexible and comfortable. Invisalign may not be suitable for all patients. For some patients traditional metal braces could be more appropriate method.

Moreover, as Invisaligns are movable, wearing it at least 20-22 hours every single day is required to maximise its effectiveness.
