Invisalign before and after results have slowly been convincing more and more people to look into this new, non-invasive technology that is beginning to replace older forms of metal bracings. These transparent alternatives to metal were once deemed a cosmetic choice over its counterpart, even garnering adult customers who were originally too self-conscious to adopt some form of orthodontic treatment.

The product is supported by nearly 50,000 doctors from around the world, and as more studies prove its effectiveness, it is gaining more traction. Notably, patients who use the transparent molds instead of metal braces are at a much lower risk from sustaining gum and tooth root damage and shortening. More than 50 percent of patients using metal devices experience some sort of tooth decay while they are attached.

Invisalign before and after studies have shown none of the inherit risks that metal tools exhibit. Further, the ease of use of the transparent molds has become a very appealing idea for consumers to adapt into their lifestyle. Because patients can remove the molds at any time on their own, there is no need for limiting certain types of foods that would normally be caught between the metal grafts of traditional devices. It’s the lack of immediate permanence that seems to be the driving factor on why children and adults alike are adopting this alternate form of orthodontic treatment.

Patients also experience much less pain when using the transparent variety as opposed to traditional dental adjusters. New molds are created every two weeks and apply less force to the teeth than metallic adjusters do, as they are realigned every six weeks.
