Nearly 20% of the population is walking around with a bad bite. A misaligned bite often involves crooked teeth, overlapping teeth or gapped teeth that can greatly threaten your smile’s appearance. If you wish you had a straight smile but are unwilling to wear metal braces, you’ll be happy to know there is a perfect solution.
What is Invisalign?
Modern orthodontics has recently brought us one of the most innovative and preferred treatment options to date. Invisalign is a clear aligner systems that can be just as effective as traditional braces but eliminates the major drawbacks of wearing fixed metal brackets and wires – especially as an adult!
Invisalign relies on a series of clear plastic aligners that are custom-made for your unique orthodontic concerns. You’ll change out your aligner set every 2-3 weeks until your teeth move into their ideal position. Beyond their clear and discreet design, Invisalign offers numerous advantages towards patient convenience and comfort.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Compared to traditional metal braces, teens and adults can take advantage of the following advantages by choosing Invisalign:
No Embarrassment: Invisalign is one of the few orthodontic treatment that is barely visible to others. Go ahead and smile for yearbook pictures or give that presentation at work without the worry of wearing metal braces.
More Comfort: Invisalign is made of thin thermoplastic that is tailored to fit over your unique teeth and gums. Unlike the abrasive brackets or wires that can irritate soft tissues, you’ll find your aligners to feel natural and comfortable around your lips, cheeks and gums.
More Freedom: While you need to keep your aligners in about 23 hours of the day, you can remove them to eat. This gives patients the valued freedom they deserve when it comes to food and treats that would otherwise have to be avoided if wearing metal braces.
Less Oral Health Issues: Again, since Invisalign is removable, you can take your trays out to brush and floss. You’ll have no wires, brackets or other obstacles to work around when trying to keep your smile clean and healthy during orthodontic treatment.
