  • Easy to use and follow. Zenyum is said to be easy to use and the plan of the treatment is also easy to follow. Not only that, but users of Zenyum also have to use an app that the dentists are updated on the progress without the need to visit the clinics.
  • Comfortable. It is verified that these braces are more comfortable than the traditional ones. This is because Zenyum’s braces are removable and invisible.

The Difference Between Zenyum And Invisalign

The main difference between the two is that Zenyum treats straight forward cases. Invisalign’s on the other hand, are for more severe cases. With Zenyum, your teeth can’t be too crowded and need extraction. Therefore, Zenyum treatments are much shorter than Invisalign’s. After wearing your “braces” you need to do follow-up check-ups. For Zenyum, it is done virtually through an app. Since Invisalign’s treat more severe cases, you need to go to the clinic and get checked by an orthodontist. Another difference is the cost!

What Are the Limitations to Wearing Zenyum?

  • Minor fixes. Zenyum’s braces can only minor straightening. If you want to realign your entire bite, molars or structure of the jaw, then Zenyum is definitely not recommended.
  • Short-term fixes. Zenyum recommends that you constantly wear retainers to keep your teeth in place. If you do not use them, then your teeth can go back to its original state, which makes the time wearing the 3D braces go to waste.

In short, yes! But in long words, they work well for segmented movement of teeth but are not as effective in correcting overtly severe tooth rotations. Zenyum is better for treating common teeth issues like overcrowding of teeth, misalignment of the teeth and jaw, irregularities in the jaw structure and dental hygiene issues. Take note: Only consider opting for Zenyum if you’re diligent and responsible in the upkeep because it is hard and tedious work!
