The short answer is yes.The only differences between the two treatments occurs between experience and cost. But here’s some history.
Patients in the United States first began wearing Invisalign in 2000, just three years after its creation. So, Invisalign does not have the same history as metal braces, but ultimately, both will produce the same desired results. But keep in mind, Invisalign success depends on the beholder. With braces, you don’t have a choice in the matter!
22 hours per day is the magic number to achieving the perfect smile you desire.
At Lakewood Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics in Dallas and Lakewood, Texas, we support our patients to make sure they can successfully follow the steps and care needed for Invisalign.
Your Dallas and Lakewood orthodontists will only recommend removing your aligners to eat, drink anything besides water, brush your teeth, and floss. However, with each Invisalign Teen aligner comes a built-in Blue Dot Wear Indicator, which alerts you if your Invisalign trays need to be worn more. So, if you must remove your aligners for reasons outside of eating or drinking, just be sure to check in with the Indicator to stay on track.
Almost invisible! Invisalign alignment trays are molded entirely of clear plastic, making it nearly impossible for you friends to see them on your teeth.
The likelihood of Invisalign impacting your speech is very low due to the thin, plastic material. If any impacts were to occur, they would be very minor and possibly only noticeable by you, the wearer.
Keep in mind, Invisalign is gaining widespread popularity. If it caused major speech impediments, they wouldn’t be very popular at all!
