What are the disadvantages of Invisalign?

When we think of Invisalign in Apex, NC, we consider all the advantages, including a straight smile, teeth that are easier to care for, and improved oral health. However, there are disadvantages to everything when you think about it.

Let’s explore a few disadvantages of Invisalign clear aligners.

#1 You Have to Wear Your Aligners for at Least 22 Hours Per Day

You might think of this as a disadvantage, even though you must wear traditional braces constantly. Still, for anyone who does not want to wear a discreet aligner most of the time, it is crucial to wear your Invisalign!

#2 You Can Misplace Your Aligner

Because Invisalign is removable, you can misplace your aligner easily. We recommend always keeping it in its case when eating and cleaning your teeth. If you place it on a plate, you risk accidentally tossing it in the trash.

#3 Your Treatment Timeline

With any orthodontic system, your treatment is not finished just because it’s time to stop wearing your aligners. After treatment, your dentist fits you with a clear retainer to maintain your teeth in their new positions.
