Invisalign is a revolutionary addition to cosmetic dentistry. These clear aligners are easy to use and can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Made of SmartTrack® material, Invisalign aligners work to gently ease your teeth in place. Listed below are some advantages that have made Invisalign a popular treatment:
One of the biggest factors that deter people from choosing braces is the way that metal brackets often stand out. Many may feel shy or self-conscious of their teeth with metal brackets and feel it may attract unwanted attention toward them.
Invisalign, however, is virtually invisible. Made of a clear material, it easily blends in with your natural teeth and doesn’t stand out the way conventional braces do, making them an ideal choice for patients who would like a low-profile treatment.
The aligners are carefully custom made to fit your needs. Our dentist at [practice_name] will guide you through the process of making your aligners and answer any questions you may have during the initial consultation.
Conventional metal braces can often trap food in its brackets or hard to reach places in the mouth, so patients have to perform more careful oral cleaning during treatment. Invisalign is built to be removable, which makes it easier for patients to enjoy food and drink since they can easily remove the aligners before eating or drinking. Unlike conventional braces, you can also remove Invisalign aligners before a special occasion or while taking pictures, and when you do wear the aligners, they are clear, making them less noticeable than metal braces. Just make sure to reinsert the aligners back because it can take longer to align teeth if you are constantly removing them.
The clear and smooth material makes it a comfortable choice. With no metal rubbing against your inner cheeks or lips, wearing Invisalign is very different than wearing conventional metal braces.
Invisalign aligners require maintenance just like other braces do. Every time you take off the aligners, make sure you brush them properly under warm water before putting them on again. This removes any residual bacteria from the aligners and prevents more from growing.
Some types of Braces have been criticized because of the suspected toxins they are said to release. If you are uneasy about the possible release of toxins that metal braces could release, you will have peace of mind knowing that Invisalign is BPA-free.
Treatment time varies from patient to patient depending on the severity of their alignment problems. Talk to our dentist to find out how long this process will take in your specific case.
