Decades ago, the only way to straighten crooked or misaligned teeth was to endure years of a mouth full of metal brackets and wires. Fortunately, thanks to advances in the field of orthodontics, straightening teeth does not have to be uncomfortable or noticeable. Invisalign® clear braces make it easy to straighten teeth discreetly. Here are some of the advantages of this amazing orthodontic process.
Easy on the Lips
Invisalign is easy on the lips, tongue and inner cheeks. Traditional braces can be uncomfortable when the soft tissues of the mouth rub against the brackets and wires. When a wire becomes loose or breaks, soft tissues can get poked or scratched. This is not the case with Invisalign.
Invisalign aligners are removable custom-made aligners that fit over your teeth and gently move them a little at a time into the desired position. The clear plastic is smooth and non-irritating to the oral tissues and virtually invisible. You can smile with confidence while wearing Invisalign aligners and no one will know you are wearing “braces.”
There are no extra tools required to keep your Invisalign aligners or your teeth and gums clean. You can maintain your regular oral hygiene routine of brushing and flossing. Remove your aligners, then brush and floss your teeth as usual. Clean your aligners with warm water and put them back in your mouth. There are no wires or brackets to work around, making this an easier and more desirable way to straighten teeth.
Instead of frequent trips to the dentist for adjustment of wires and ligatures, every two weeks you will receive a new pair of aligners. Invisalign cuts down on office visits and is considerably more comfortable than the process using traditional braces.
Enjoy Your Life with Invisalign!
You can enjoy all the foods you love to eat when you choose the Invisalign system of orthodontics. Take your aligners out for your meal or snacks, rinse your teeth when finished and pop the aligners back in. You do not have to change your diet during the time you are being treated. Traditional braces come with a list of foods that must be avoided until treatment ends. Not so with Invisalign. Enjoy your life with friends and family and eat what you like.
