What are the Disadvantages of Invisalign?
Not all patients can hold themselves responsible for wearing their aligners for 22 hours per day. Many patients also find it annoying to have to brush their teeth after every meal or drink that is not water. It really depends on the patient. Many think these small sacrifices are worth the benefits that come with Invisalign like the freedom to eat whatever you want, the ability to brush and floss with ease, and the comfort of wearing smooth clear plastic aligners.
