Invisalign Vs. Other Clear Aligner Therapy

Posted on 7/4/2022 by Evan
Invisalign Vs. Other Clear Aligner TherapyInvisalign is a company that has come a long way to create a new and affordable make for tooth straightening. It has diversified to orthodontics and is making huge strides with its products regardless of the stiff competition it experiences. The clear aligners are the most popular product most dentists have recommended for years. Let's elaborate on the key differences between the two products.

Cost, Convenience, and Effectiveness

Regarding cost, the Invisalign clear aligners are the most expensive due to the procedures involved when putting them on. Consequently, the overall cost of the treatment is extremely higher than other clear aligners. The other competitors, Smile Direct and Clear Correct, are slightly cheaper, which has resulted in most insurance companies covering such procedures to minimize the burden of high medical costs.

On the other hand, clear aligners have proven to be very convenient. For instance, they're easily removable; thus, the effort required to remove them is quite minimal when eating or drinking. It's also convenient as one can perform regular oral routines without many challenges. Invisalign clear aligners allow people to have the meal of their choice, unlike the traditional braces. Unfortunately, they require periodic visitations to the dentist every six weeks for maintenance and to primarily ensure effective and desired teeth aligning.

The Invisalign aligners are products that dentists use to deal with almost all straightening complications and thus have become as effective as traditional braces in their application. Studies have shown that Invisalign teeth shifters do the work very well as they shift the teeth permanently.

Comfort and Durability

The primary characteristic of Invisalign is its comfort. The plastic is gentle with the mouth and gums, with the shapes fitting well with the gums and teeth. Also, the ease of putting in and taking off the aligners has contributed to their comfortability.
