Invisalign® a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces, while still providing beautiful results. If you’re considering straightening your smile with clear aligners, read on to learn about five positive aspects of this orthodontic treatment.
One of the best things about Invisalign is right there in the name–it’s nearly invisible! Instead of metal brackets and wires that are noticeable against your teeth, clear aligners appear less obtrusive. Plus, they are more difficult to detect in photographs so you can feel confident smiling throughout your treatment!
Clear aligners are removed when you clean your teeth, eat, and drink anything other than water. Keep in mind that the trays require careful cleaning and rinsing, and they can become lost, warped, and damaged. However, your teeth are easier to brush and floss because there are no brackets and wires to navigate around.
The trays are made out of a smooth plastic that are comfortable and non-irritating. You don’t have to worry about bits of metal scraping against or poking your cheeks, lips, and tongue.
You’ll switch out your trays every few weeks for the next set in the series to progress your treatment. But your visits will be brief since there are no wires to tighten, elastics to replace, or rubber bands configurations to learn.
As technology evolves and improves, Invisalign aligners have become more accessible in price. Although the treatment is still an investment, it’s one that will yield incredible results if you wear your aligners at least 22 hours a day.
