Thousands of people avoid orthodontics because they can’t stand the thought of wearing braces. Many would prefer crooked teeth due to the fear of wearing metal on their teeth or believe wearing braces will be uncomfortable. One of the solutions to this may be found by choosing Invisalign™, a solution that renders braces virtually invisible.
What is Invisalign™
Invisalign™ is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. Invisalign™ uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. Invisalign™ has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide.
Invisalign™ aligners are comfortable, low profile, custom made clear plastic trays. Most people may not even know you are wearing the aligners. As your teeth change and your smile improves, you will change aligners every two weeks, wearing them for 20-22 hours a day.
Another great benefit to Invisalign, is that aligners can be removed to eat, drink, or brush your teeth.
Advantages of Invisalign™ Clear Braces
There are advantages of using Invisalign over traditional braces. Each aligner is only worn for a two week time frame, and appointments are only needed every six to eight weeks to pick up your next set of aligners. Also, because of the convenience of being able to remove your aligners before each meal, you do not have to worry about the hassle of food getting stuck between your teeth like with traditional braces.
