In today’s world of innovation and technology, we have developed smart solutions to our everyday problems. For example, pimple patches to get rid of zits overnight, concealers to hide dark circles, instant foods to reduce cooking time, etc. The list goes on! One such modern solution in the field of orthodontics that has created a positive impact on adults has been the introduction of clear aligners!
Invisible aligners or clear aligners are the modern solution or replacement to the traditional metal braces that we have all known and dreaded. Unlike metal braces, which have always been associated with discomfort, lower confidence and unpleasantness, dental aligners, especially the transparent ones, are the most convenient way of correcting teeth. What makes these two treatment options so different when it comes to teeth straightening for adults? Read on to find out!
5 unique advantages of makeO toothsi invisible aligners over traditional braces
As the name suggests these aligners are entirely invisible to the naked eye which means that you can go on about your day, work your 9-5 job, smile at photos and be authentically yourself without worrying about wires, brackets etc., ruining your pearly whites. For those who want to fix their teeth but don’t want to compromise on their physical appearance for a year or two, clear aligners are the best option for you!
Metal braces consist of brackets, wires and bands, all of which are fixed and cannot be removed for 12-24 months till the treatment is complete. Only orthodontists are certified to remove them correctly and they are the ones who tighten them from time to time. This means that once you commit to braces, you will never be free of them until the end of your course. But since clear aligners are plastic trays, they are easily removable so you can take them off when you’re eating or drinking and wear them back once you are comfortable. All you need to do is wear these aligners for 20-22 hours a day and you are good to go!
Metal braces have long been known to result in cuts, inflammation and speech issues. Each tightening session can lead to pain and discomfort for a few weeks too in the case of braces. With aligners from makeO toothsi, you can say goodbye to all of these issues as our aligners are made from USFDA-approved superior quality plastic which fits snugly over your teeth and does not cause any pain!
4. Easy to brush and floss
Brushing and flossing can be very difficult with metal braces. It also becomes very hectic to remove and manage to keep your braces clean. With clear aligners, you simply have to remove them and brush your teeth normally. You can floss with ease too and put your aligners back on once you are done. This ensures that your teeth are as clean as possible and you can prevent any future dental health issues!
5. Low maintenance
Unlike metal braces which require high maintenance, aligners are very easy to handle. All you need to do is clean your aligners with your aligner cleaning liquid at least once a day and rinse them in clean and cold water. Store them safely in their case while eating and never place them near hot temperatures as they can get deformed. Never use toothpaste on your aligners and stick to the instructions given to you once you receive them. That’s all you need to know to maintain your aligners and have a safe and hygienic smile correction!
And how much do aligners cost? Well, some aligners can be more expensive when compared to metal braces.
