Underbite, overbite, crossbite, crowding, and gaps: all these are common teeth alignment problems many Singapore residents have. Most of them can be corrected through traditional braces.
The thing is, a lot of those who have these issues are no longer in their teenage years. Quite a good percentage of them are already adults who’d rather not wear metal braces that tend to have an impact on facial appearance.
Invisibility: The Latest Approach to Straightening Teeth Out
Fortunately, conventional braces are no longer the only option for teeth straightening. One of these is the invisible approach, which comes in the form of the Invisalign treatment from i.Dental. Unlike metal braces, this removal dental appliance is made of clear plastic, so it is completely inconspicuous.
No one will immediately be able to tell, unless upon close inspection, that someone is using Invisalign aligners.
More than Just a Non-Obvious Way to Realign Teeth
Although the primary attraction to Invisalign is its “invisibility,” it offers more than just an unobvious way to realign teeth. Since it is removable, it is easier to clean the teeth, gums, and tongue, promoting better oral hygiene. Its removability also allows for quick but thorough cleaning of the appliance. This feature also enables users to enjoy whatever food they want, unlike with traditional braces that have certain food and beverage restrictions.
Factors Contributing to Overall Cost of the Treatment
Invisalign’s cost in Singapore depends on many factors, and is different from case to case. It’s one of the pricier teeth straightening methods, though. The type of problem, the severity of the problem, and your own oral hygiene habits all contribute to the overall cost of the treatment.
The Bottom Line
Although the price of Invisalign is the most common reason people hesitate to choose this as their teeth realignment option, its cost is easily outweighed by all the benefits it delivers.
Overall, Invisalign is a worthy investment, and the fact that even adults can benefit from it makes it an even more attractive teeth-straightening choice.
