Many people want to straighten their smile but don’t want to go through the trouble of wearing noticeable and painful metal appliances. Invisalign® makes straightening easier.
By using these imperceptible aligners every day, you can get your dream smile without wires and brackets!
How Is Invisalign® Different from Braces?
Invisalign® is a clear plastic tray aligner system that is completely removable. The material of these aligners allows for corrective treatment that isn’t visible.
Once we take accurate impressions of your teeth and design your aligners, you’ll have to wear them from 20 to 22 hours a day and only remove them before you eat and brush your teeth. Your teeth will slowly start shifting, so you'll need to get new aligners every two to three weeks.
When the treatment is over, you will no longer suffer from issues like:
- Underbite, overbite, and crossbite
- Open bite
Benefits of Invisalign®
Aside from being discrete, Invisalign® trays have other advantages that make them a popular choice among children and adults, such as:
- Being painless
- Not requiring dietary restrictions
- Needing fewer visits to the dentist
- Letting you brush your teeth better
Am I a Good Candidate for Invisalign®
Invisalign® is great for minor and moderate misalignment issues but won’t work as effectively for severely crooked teeth or misaligned jaws. Patients who undergo this procedure must also:
- Have healthy teeth and gums
- Have permanent incisors and first molars
- Not have undergone extensive dental work
