Although now, there are a few clear plastic aligners options to straighten your teeth. However, many people struggle to choose the right option. So, which should you use? Beam Clear aligners or Invisalign? Read along to find out.

Also, it is important to note that there has been an increase in the number of adults seeking orthodontic treatment over the years. From what we’ve seen, adults make up at least a quarter of all orthodontic patients. The increase may be connected with the development of clear aligners, also, more adults have realized how important a good smile is to their overall levels of confidence.

At least 80% of adults who have undergone teeth straightening said it was one of the best procedures they ever did. Over 90% admitted that straight teeth helped to boost their confidence.

The thing is, if you wish to correct your teeth alignment or your bite with clear aligners, then you have many options to choose from. Consider two of the more popular options – Beam clear aligners or Invisalign, and see which is best for you.

What is Invisalign?

When you use Invisalign braces, you will wear clear aligners over your top and bottom teeth. These aligners are made of plastic. They move your teeth gradually and cause them to straighten. Compared to traditional braces, you’ll have to remove these aligners before eating or drinking.

Each set of aligners is worn for 22 hours daily, for 5-7 days, then you dispose of that, and use a new set of aligners. There are variations in the treatment time frame, although you can wear the aligners for up to 6 months on average.

Align Technology is the company behind Invisalign’s. Invisalign’s are approved by the US-FDA. They are made of BPS- and BPA-free plastic, and are also latex- and gluten-free.

Before starting an Invisalign treatment, you will have to consult a certified dentist. He or she may not necessarily be an orthodontist but must be a licensed dentist and a certified Invisalign provider. While planning your treatment, the dentist will detail how your smile will be after you’ve worn the aligners. You will also get to know the duration of treatment and the cost.

Most patients go for checkups every 6-8 weeks. You must call your dentist if you have concerns or questions between checkups.

After your treatment, you must wear a retainer. This will help to maintain your teeth alignment. Align Technology, makers of Invisalign also produce retainers known as Vivera Retainers. They are produced with the same materials as the clear aligners. Of course, there are other retainers made from acrylic and other less durable materials.

Beam Clear Aligners

This straightening method involves wearing a clear aligner for a set period. The aligner is made of BPA free plastic material. You will need to wear Beam Clear aligners for at least 22 hours.

Beam Clear aligners must be changed periodically. The frequency at which you will change the aligner, as well as the number of aligners you’ll need, depends on how severe your condition is, as well as the type of treatment.
