If you are a candidate for orthodontic braces, you have options to choose from besides just traditional braces. Unlike standard metal braces, Invisalign is a virtually invisible, easily removable, and comfortable approach to straightening your teeth. To learn how you could benefit from Invisalign, read the following overview:
Advanced Technology: Advanced 3D computer imaging technology is used throughout your treatment with Invisalign. Upon your first consultation, the orthodontist will create a plan of how your teeth will move into a final desired position. Don’t worry about rubber bands or other painful wiring methods of traditional braces. You’ll simply visit your orthodontist every two weeks to replace your aligner with a newly fitted one.
Increased Comfort: Invisalign technology provides all the benefits of traditional braces without the discomfort. Standard metal braces and brackets easily irritate the gums and can cause painful sores in your mouth. With Invisalign, you can enjoy clear, smooth, and BPA-free plastic aligners that, unlike their metal counterparts, won’t require the application of special wax to sooth ulcerated areas in your mouth.
Improved Hygiene: Invisalign’s custom-made aligners make it easy to maintain good oral hygiene because they are removable. Traditional braces are secured to your teeth, making it difficult to remove bits of food and plaque that get stuck in between brackets. Invisalign wearers have the luxury of brushing and flossing their teeth without special brushes or oral irrigators.
More Confidence: Invisalign’s clear aligners are ideal for adults who are uneasy about revealing metal braces. Adults in the service industry and others who simply want to be discreet about their orthodontic work can carry on with their day-to-day activities without feeling inhibited.
