Myths About Invisalign That You Should Stop Believing

It’s Not an Effective Treatment  

One of the most common myths about this treatment is that it’s not as effective as metal braces. However, because of its advanced technology, the all-encompassing force that Invisalign aligners exert across the teeth is superior to that of conventional metal braces. Additionally, orthodontists won’t be able to reverse engineer teeth as well with braces compared to Invisalign clear braces 

The Treatment Is Longer Compared to Braces

With traditional braces, patients typically have to wait years before getting a straighter smile. However, in less than two years, Invisalign can potentially give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Furthermore, several variables affect how long Invisalign takes to work. These variables include your ability to adhere to your orthodontist’s recommendations, the complexity of the treatment, and the state of your teeth.  

You’ll Have Difficulty Talking or Communicating

While most people who use Invisalign aligners don’t have any trouble speaking typically, some people may stutter somewhat during the first two to three days of treatment or when they put their aligners back in after a long break.    

You Can’t Eat Anything You Want 

Wearers of Invisalign love the freedom to eat anything they want, whenever they want. This orthodontic device won’t restrict your diet because it employs removable aligners rather than metal brackets and wires.
