blondeglassessmileAre you under the impression that your smile needs straightening? Serious aligning? Before you jump to the conclusion that you require traditional braces, ask yourself if you really know all there is to know about Invisalign treatment. Uncover the truth to some common misconceptions with the following debunked myths. You just might find that Invisalign provides you with a wonderful option to achieving the smile you want.

Myth #1: Invisalign treatment is only for very minor problems

Their near invisibility and comfort make them seem too good to be true, but these trays are actually pretty powerful. They do not work only for mild problems, but for most malocclusions treated by conventional metal braces, including the following:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open Bite
  • Overcrowding
  • Spaces Between Teeth

Myth #2: Speaking with aligner trays is difficult and embarrassing

Like anything other foreign object that you begin to wear on a regular basis, an adjustment period will be required. And while there is no set one-size-fits-all time period identical for all patients, you will find that you quickly become accustomed to wearing your trays. You will speak just as articulately and may even forget that you’re wearing aligners.

Myth #3: This treatment is incredibly expensive and time-consuming

Actually, when you compare the aligner trays system with metal braces, they run a fairly close race. Invisalign typically requires an investment in line with traditional metal braces. As for the duration of your treatment, every case is unique whether you choose trays or brackets and wires. However, treatment time is similar, typically lasting approximately one year.
