What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a clear alternative to braces. It is made up of a clear plastic aligner trays that are changed out every few weeks. The succession of aligners gradually shifts your teeth into place. We create the aligners with special technology that maps a path for your teeth from their current position to their proper positions when alignment is complete. This method is as effective a traditional braces, produces great results, and still requires about the same amount of retainer use after treatment.
There are also some major benefits to using Invisalign over traditional braces. Let’s talk about four things you will love about Invisalign and why you should choose it for your alignment needs.
Fact #1: Invisalign is comfortable.
Invisalign is known for being much more comfortable to wear than traditional braces. Because the aligners are made up of a clear plastic material, there are no metal wires or brackets to cause friction. Braces often rub the inside of the patient’s cheeks or lips and can become uncomfortable. Invisalign simple does do that thanks to the soft plastic.
Invisalign also moves the teeth more gently than traditional braces. While it is often very uncomfortable (even painful) to have your wires tightened with traditional braces, changing out Invisalign aligners is a breeze! It does not hurt and you really should only notice a very manageable pressure. Avoid unnecessary discomfort by choosing Invisalign for comfortable orthodontic treatment!
Fact #2: Invisalign is convenient.
Did you know that Invisalign is completely removable? When you use traditional braces, they are placed and then cannot be removed without the help of your care provider at the end of treatment. Your braces can stop you from eating certain foods and can get in the way on special occasions. With Invisalign, you can remove your aligners any time you feel it is necessary! In fact, they SHOULD be removed for eating, drinking, and hygiene purposes. Just be sure to wear them for at least 22 hours each and every day … that is the only way you will able to achieve optimum results!
Fact #3: Invisalign is fast.
Invisalign can help you achieve the results you desire in just about 12 months! That is half the time (or less) than it takes for traditional braces to work their magic. If you want to avoid the two or three year commitment that traditional braces require, Invisalign can be a great option for you. In many cases, you can get the same great results in just a fraction of the time!
Fact #4: Invisalign is invisible.
Do you want to know the best thing about Invisalign? It is invisible! When you place the Invisalign aligners in your mouth, they are nearly impossible to see thanks to the clear plastic material they are made from. This looks WAY better than the brackets and wires of traditional braces. Your peers won’t even know you are undergoing treatment … unless you tell them, of course.
