Benefits of Invisalign
- Invisalign is comfortable.
Unlike traditional braces — made of brackets and wires that can poke or rub your mouth — Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, custom-fitted plastic that fit comfortably over your teeth. The process of moving your teeth with removable aligners is also less intense compared to metal braces, which require frequent in-office adjustments to wires and bands. With Invisalign, you simply substitute your aligners every couple of weeks as they apply gentle pressure to gradually move your teeth.
- Invisalign is practically invisible.
If you already feel self-conscious about your teeth’s appearance, then you will probably feel even less confident wearing braces that draw attention to your teeth. A distinct advantage of Invisalign over other teeth-straightening methods is that it is virtually invisible. Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of plastic, clear aligners that blend with your natural smile. Patients love Invisalign’s transparent, retainer-like appearance, and it will be difficult for anyone to notice that you are straightening your teeth with invisible braces.
- Invisalign is convenient.
Invisalign aligners don’t interfere with your life. Whether you have a school dance or an important work presentation, you can remove the aligners as needed as long as you wear them for the prescribed number of hours every day. Since you can remove your aligners before you eat, you can enjoy the foods you want without diet restrictions. And when you are finished eating, you can brush and floss your teeth before placing the removable aligners back on your teeth.
- Invisalign is effective.
Invisalign removable aligners work. While traditional braces are still a widely used form
of orthodontia in our office, not everyone requires the extensive treatment that metal braces provide. In most cases, Invisalign removable braces benefit patients without complex bite issues.
Invisalign and removal aligners are a preferred method for adults and teens who are looking for a fast and effective fix for their mild dental issues, including gapped teeth, crowded teeth, overbites, underbites and crossbites.
Is Invisalign Right for You?
The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign invisible aligners is to schedule a complimentary visit with our practice. Our team will meet with you to understand your goals for treatment, assess your current bite issues and work with you to create a customized plan that matches your treatment goals.
