Remember when braces consisted of what looked like oversized train tracks that run across your teeth? Thankfully, with the advance in orthodontic treatment, braces can be as inconspicuous as possible. The current trend in aesthetic braces is the InVu braces, which has been around for over a decade.
Designed and built using the latest technology, InVu braces is one of the most successful orthodontic devices around. It consists of ceramic materials that are durable and less likely to break or splinter. InVu braces are placed on the outer surface of the tooth and exerts an accurate amount of pressure to push the teeth into proper alignment, working faster than conventional braces. Most patients can experience the results within 12 to 18 months.
InVu aesthetic braces are barely noticeable. It has only one wire which runs across the teeth, and the wire is designed to match the colour of your natural teeth. The brackets are made from white ceramic materials, so it is virtually invisible and can only be seen up close. InVu braces uses tooth coloured elastics which attaches to the arch wires, making this form of orthodontic treatment even more discrete, allowing you to smile with confidence while wearing them.
InVu braces is suitable for many people, adults and children, because they combine good aesthetics without sacrificing effectiveness. Containing the conventional bracket design, they are able to move teeth faster and just as effective as metal brackets, therefore it can be used in even the most severe orthodontic conditions.
There are not many disadvantages to InVu braces. The only downside about this innovation is that some patients claim that the tooth coloured wires do not always remain tooth coloured. This is due to stains left behind from food and beverages. If you are dedicated to cleaning your teeth twice daily and flossing after every bite using a floss pick, then you will certainly reap the maximum benefits.
