Build A Better Smile
Invisalign is a more recent innovation in orthodontic care. Instead of using brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of plastic aligners that are custom-designed to fit your teeth at each step of the process.
These aligners have been around for decades, and they have been proven to fix all of these issues:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded smiles
- Gaps between teeth
- Open bites
Millions of teens and adults have used these aligners to redefine their smiles. Could it work for you? For most people, the answer is yes. There are instances when traditional braces are the better option, but we can help with that, too.
The Advantages Of Invisalign
When Invisalign was first created, it was designed with adult patients in mind. Many adults would like to have straighter teeth, but they are bothered by the idea of wearing brackets and wires.
This may be Invisalign’s biggest advantage over traditional orthodontic care. The aligners are made of transparent plastic. Since they are custom-made for your teeth, they are a discreet way to make changes to your smile. This can help you feel more relaxed about wearing your aligners in both personal and professional situations.
Invisalign has other benefits as well, which may make it easier for you to decide to do something about your teeth in the year to come.
Some people find that brackets and metal wires can irritate the soft tissues inside their mouths. Wires also can break, and brackets can come loose. Any of these can cause braces to feel painful. The smooth aligners feel more comfortable. They don’t have small parts that can break and poke into your cheeks or lips, either.
Another concern for many patients is eating during their orthodontic treatment. With braces, it’s strongly recommended that you should avoid many foods. Things that are hard, crunchy, and sticky all can create problems. This won’t be a concern with Invisalign aligners, however. All you have to do is remove them before you eat, and you can enjoy all the foods that you love. Just remember to clean your mouth and rinse your aligner before putting it back in.
