6. What Are The Downsides?
There are some disadvantages to Invisalign, which include:
Some patients may view the cost of this treatment as an investment. After all, the perfect smile is priceless. It increases your confidence and boosts social and business relationships. However, the treatment is expensive. While some dental plans cover some costs, if you don’t have insurance, you’ll have to foot the entire bill.
Some people might experience “dry mouth” with this treatment. You may find yourself breathing out of your mouth at night (unconsciously) while wearing aligners. Thus, causing “dry mouth”. However, the condition should go away once you are done with your Invisalign trays.
Not For The Forgetful At Heart
Finally, you have to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day. Therefore, if you are busy, on the go, or forgetful by nature, this can be challenging. You may forget to put on your trays after a meal. You might forget to bring them with you while traveling. Forgetting to put your trays in, delays the progress in straightening your smile.
Even more, you could place them somewhere and forget where they are. Perhaps, accidentally throw them out. Replacing these trays can get expensive.
