The effectiveness over traditional braces and Invisaligns treatment is divided. Medical studies and findings about Invisalign are still lacking and the biggest concern by others about this treatment is that Invisalign may not necessarily correct the dental problem.
A main problem with Invisaligns aligners is that they are removable, so much of how effective they are actually depends on the person getting the treatment. If you are the type who can not stay committed to wearing the braces as often and as advised by your dentist, then the treatment will not bring good results. If you need dental braces to correct molars, then Invisalign may not be the best braces treatment option. The device has difficulty in grasping molars and letting this rotate or set in its place for better alignment.
There have been people who reported to having their Invisalign broken. While in many cases this is partly due to their own carelessness, the technology is not as durable as metal braces. If you have a more active lifestyle, or you tend to grind your teeth while you sleep at night, then this option may not be the right kind of braces treatment for you to go with. Make sure you talk to your orthodontic dentist and go over the pros and cons before making the final decision on what you feel will be the best for your dental needs.
