In a nutshell, the answer is yes. Thanks to the latest technology, there are now more precise and faster ways to get an idea of what each patient needs for orthodontic treatment and less intrusive ways to make sure that treatment goes as planned. If you're looking to improve your appearance at work, school, or with friends, Invisalign is a great choice. These clear braces are nearly invisible, so no one will know you're straightening your teeth unless you tell them.
And when treatment is finished, you can feel confident in your new smile. Dentists with years of experience understand that it can be difficult to take accurate impressions of teeth in a professional setting on the first try. It may take two or three attempts to get it right. This is because each person's teeth are unique and there's no way to replicate them.
The impressions must be exact in order to create comfortable aligners that move your teeth as desired. It's unlikely that the average person at home will be able to take quality impressions of their own teeth. Plus, they won't even know if their impressions are good or not. If you start with bad impressions, your entire orthodontic plan will be off from the beginning.
You won't be able to guarantee good results in the future. These Invisalign devices fit perfectly over your teeth, so you won't have to worry about any discomfort from rubbing or poking during treatment. The cost of Invisalign braces will depend on your individual treatment and insurance plan, but it's usually comparable to traditional braces.
