Living With Invisalign Treatment

Living With Invisalign Treatment

May 16, 2019

Invisalign treatment offers patients with crooked teeth an opportunity to enhance the alignment of their teeth without the hassle of wearing bulky metallic braces. Invisalign is almost invisible to other people while talking and eating.

Who Needs Invisalign

Invisalign treatment is suitable for any patient with crooked teeth. It is best suitable for younger patients who do not wish to have their smile and appearance hampered with bulky metallic braces.

Not Wearing Trays With Lengthen Treatment

One of the biggest advantages of Invisalign treatment is that the trays can be removed while eating or cleaning their teeth. Most dentists recommend wearing Invisalign trays for about 20 hours a day, and most Invisalign treatments can last between 12 to 18 months.

What Patients Think About Invisalign

While most patients express their satisfaction with the Invisalign treatment, however, some patients can experience certain issues or difficulties during their Invisalign treatment. Here are some common experience issues of patients of Invisalign treatment.

  • The trays may be tight: Initially, some patients can experience some discomfort due to the trays being too tight for them. However, most patients get used to their Invisalign trays within a few days or ask their dentist to adjust their trays.
  • You can hear the trays: While Invisalign trays are invisible, they can cause some speech difficulties with the wearer developing a lisp. However, the patient improves their speech and lisp over time.
  • The trays can stain: While the Invisalign trays are invisible and not easy to notice, they are capable of staining. Users should refrain from consuming tea, coffee, red wine and highly pigmented food and beverages.
  • You’ll have new trays every two weeks: Patients of Invisalign treatment require tray replacement instead of regular wire tightening.
  • You might eat less: Many users of Invisalign report loss in weight due to reducing the amount of snacking. This is mainly due to the inconvenience of removing the trays every time they have to eat.
