Invisalign® aligners are one of the newest and most popular forms of orthodontic treatment methods on the market today. They are thin and transparent plastic aligners that gradually transform the placement of your teeth into a more ideal position for the smile you have always wanted. They are custom-made to fit your mouth and teeth, and are crafted for comfort and ease of use – unlike the traditional bracket and wire braces. Here are some of the many benefits of getting the Invisalign® treatment.
Invisalign® braces are completely transparent. This means that they can be worn without anyone knowing you are even wearing them. Gone are the days when you needed to worry about the appearance of metal wires and brackets.
No Food Restrictions
With traditional braces made of wires and brackets, there are some foods that become increasingly difficult to eat and some that you aren’t even allowed to eat. However, with Invisalign®, there are no such restrictions. Simply remove your aligners to eat and drink and put them back in when you are finished. No special cleaning is required, and you get to eat and drink whatever you want.
Simple to Use
As we mentioned, cleaning your traditional braces can be a daunting task. There are so many little crevices and areas for food to get stuck in, as well those special little tools that you have to use to get to them. With Invisalign®, you can easily slide the braces out of your mouth to brush, floss and use mouthwash. Easy, simple and not time-consuming at all. Since there are no obstructions to cleaning, you can expect your mouth to be even cleaner than with traditional braces.
Much More Comfortable
Most patients who choose Invisalign® say they are very comfortable to wear and quickly forget about them even being there. This is easier said than done with the more traditional type of braces.
Correct Many Smile Imperfections
Invisalign® is here to correct just about anything that your traditional braces can. They are most commonly used to straighten crooked teeth, make sure your teeth are properly spaced with no crowding or serious gaping, and even correct a misaligned overbite or underbite.
