While a lot of people would like straighter teeth, some people have avoided seeking teeth straightening treatment after being put off by the thought of traditional braces and the associated implications. For example, the idea of having metal brackets in your mouth and the pain and swelling that comes as side effects aren’t tempting. This is without even thinking about the appearance of metal braces.
In the late 21st century, Invisalign was introduced. Rather than using the conservative method of straightening teeth, i.e., metal bands and brackets, Invisalign use customs made plastic trays. This is known as the conservative method of straightening teeth and has become very popular now days.
How clear aligners move teeth?
The tooth is made up of different materials and the visible part of the tooth is known as enamel. The roof of the tooth is covered with something called cementum. The Cementum is connected to the surrounding tooth socket by the periodontal ligament, which is made up of collagen and fibers. PDL, is to anchor the teeth to the bone socket so that they don’t fall out. It allows movements which absorb pressure from chewing.
You have to just put clear aligners carefully apply controlled pressure to the teeth to move them into a better position. Clear Aligner treatment is more convenient as it is more attractive to the eye and it doesn’t cause as much discomfort and pain and conventional braces. Invisalign treatment simply requires you to wear a series of modified, designed clear aligner trays, to move your teeth into the desired position.
