If you want to straighten your teeth but hate the idea of wearing traditional braces, then you can opt for Invisalign Medford instead. Invisalign is a great way to straighten your teeth without having to deal with metal brackets and wires. Not only are they more aesthetically pleasing, but they’re also very comfortable to wear and works just as effectively as traditional braces. Unfortunately, several misconceptions and myths about Invisalign have pushed people away from this amazing treatment. To make things clear, here are the 4 common Invisalign myths.
A lot of people think that Invisalign can’t treat misalignments. Your dentist can customize the Invisalign aligner system to address your smile’s specific needs and concerns. It can effectively treat crossbites, overbites, underbites, open bites, gapped teeth, and overcrowded teeth.
On average, Invisalign treatment only takes around 12-18 months to complete. This is relatively quick compared to traditional braces that take about 2 years to complete. But your length of treatment depends heavily on how severe your case is and how good you are at wearing your aligners for 22 hours a day and changing them as scheduled.
Invisalign is not only suitable for adults, teens can wear them too. If you’re a parent considering Invisalign treatment for your teen, just make sure they’re responsible enough to wear them most of the time and to clean them every after eating.
DIY aligners promise to improve your smile instantly. But moving your teeth too quickly can damage your bone and gum tissues. DIY aligners may also not move your teeth into the correct position, leading to misaligned teeth and a bad bite.
