Known as “the clear alternative to braces,” Invisalign® can solve the same orthodontic issues as traditional braces, including overbites, cross-bites, tooth crowding, and gaps. Yet the clear plastic aligners are smooth, comfortable, removable, and nearly invisible. Your aligners are custom-made just for you, and will gently shift your teeth into the desired position without the need for metal brackets or wires.
Here are some of the top benefits of Invisalign®:
3-D Modeling: Your treatment starts with a 3-D digital model of your mouth. Your dentist will use sophisticated planning software to show you exactly what your smile will look like at each phase of treatment, including the results.
Convenience: Invisalign® is far more convenient than braces. Your dentist will instruct you on the proper use and care of your aligners, and when to change aligners at home (usually, but not always, every two weeks). You will need to see the dentist just once every four to six weeks.
Improved Oral Hygiene: While those who wear braces must get creative when cleaning their teeth, aligners simply pop out. You can brush and floss your teeth like normal, then clean the aligner and pop it back in. Braces also carry a risk of scraping off some of your tooth enamel, putting you at risk for dark spots and decay, while Invisalign® is easy on your teeth.
Lifestyle Considerations: Braces are impossible to hide and can stop you from eating foods such as apples and popcorn. Aligners are made from virtually invisible clear plastic, and can be removed whenever you want to eat your favorite foods.
