Answers to Questions That Invisalign Wilmington, DE Patients Want to Know
One of the most common questions people have when it comes to Invisalign is who does the treatment work best for? A major advantage of Invisalign is that it works well for almost everyone—including teens and adults. Historically, traditional braces with poking wires and a less-appealing appearance haven’t been the favorite option for teens, adults or any recipient of an orthodontic treatment. Alternately, Invisalign has several benefits. Learn more about the advantages of Invisalign as we answer several common questions:
Q: Invisalign straightens teeth, but can it correct other orthodontic issues, too?
A: Yes! While Invisalign corrects crooked teeth, it can also address:
- Crowded Teeth
- Gap Teeth
- Open Bites
Q: Do you have to watch what you eat with Invisalign like you do with traditional braces?
A: Since Invisalign utilizes clear aligners that can be removed for meals, not only can you eat the things you normally do, but you can also brush and floss while the aligners aren’t in use.
Q: Do you have to wear your clear aligners all day, every day?
A: For best results, Dr. David Nibouar and Dr. Matt Baran recommend that you follow the Invisalign guidelines and wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day. This still allows time to remove the aligner trays for meals, brushing and flossing, and for special events.
Q: Does the Invisalign orthodontic treatment work better than traditional braces?
A: According to a recent study, a comparison between patients treated with Invisalign versus traditional braces expressed a higher satisfaction rate with Invisalign. The study additionally demonstrated that patients of Invisalign experienced an increase in gingival and oral hygiene health.
