Maybe you were considering starting orthodontic treatment but weren’t ready to wear visible braces. Perhaps you were worried that your treatment would be too painful. These worries can be put aside as you look at the options available to you. Invisalign attachments are a recent breakthrough in orthodontics.
Invisalign is a popular option for orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is an excellent alternative to braces because they are clear and can be removed. You can enjoy a straight smile without the need for wires or visible brackets. You can also take your aligners out for meals so you don’t have to deal with any restrictions on food.
Invisalign has not been able to treat more severe cases than traditional braces. This is what has prevented people from getting Invisalign. Some people prefer braces over Invisalign. This problem has been solved by the Invisalign attachments.
What are Invisalign Attachments and How Do They Work?
Invisalign attachments can be small pieces that are added to the regular Invisalign Aligner System. This makes Invisalign an excellent treatment option for a wider variety of cases. They can be placed strategically to increase pressure at a specific location. This allows for easier movement in areas that are more crowded or crooked. A small hook attached to the aligner is another type of attachment for Invisalign. These hooks are equipped with elastic bands that pull the jaw forward and back.
Although they are slightly more visible than traditional braces, they are still very invisible. These little pieces of plastic are custom-made to match your teeth’s color and can only be seen if you look closely. To prevent them from becoming dislodged or damaged, Invisalign attachments will be placed directly on your teeth.
Traditional braces still offer the best option for those with very difficult cases. However, Invisalign attachments have made it possible for more patients to choose Invisalign. Invisalign attachments have opened up new options for patients who have severe crookedness or malocclusions.
