What makes Invisalign Attachments so Popular?

Invisalign braces have become an excellent option to straighten teeth.

Invisalign treatment involves the patient wearing clear plastic aligner trays over their teeth. These aligner trays are customized, based your dentist’s measurements, and are designed to gradually straighten your teeth. Somewhat like the traditional braces, Invisalign shifts your teeth in place, over time, using controlled force.

Invisalign offers many benefits that have made it popular amongst those who wish for straighter teeth, including –

  • Aligners are virtually invisible. No one can tell you are wearing them!
  • Aligners are removable. They can be easily taken out while you are eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing!
  • Aligners are easy to clean and better for your oral health than traditional braces.

The aligners can straighten minor alignment issues. Sometimes, extra attachments may be used to treat specific issues.

Invisalign attachments are small, tooth-colored adhesive dots made of dental bonding, and are placed at specific locations on the teeth to provide extra grip for the aligners. These attachments ensure aligner force to be focused in the right spot by applying the ideal amount of pressure. These attachments may also be used to secure elastic bands.

Invisalign attachments are placed directly on the teeth, so aligners fit more snugly.

Before your Invisalign treatment kicks off, ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the attachments. Your dentist would explain everything to you, but you can ask any questions you may have.
