Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners to straighten teeth gradually. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and fit comfortably over the teeth. Patients wear a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until their teeth are correctly aligned. This treatment option is ideal for adults and teenagers.
The best way to find out if you’re a candidate for Invisalign is to schedule an appointment with your cosmetic dentist. He or she can evaluate your smile and talk with you about your goals to determine if Invisalign is right for you.
Getting Invisalign offers numerous benefits, such as:
Invisalign clear aligners are nearly invisible on your teeth. These aligners are also removable, allowing you to eat whatever you want, and you can also brush and floss normally. Unlike braces, Invisalign clear aligners won’t disrupt your day-to-day life.
With regular Invisalign cleanings, your teeth will be easier to brush and floss, which can help prevent more serious oral health issues. However, it is important to maintain good oral health with daily brushing and flossing before, during, and after your Invisalign treatment.
Braces require a great deal of force to align teeth, and this movement can sometimes cause discomfort or pain. Invisalign uses gentle pressure to shift your teeth into their desired positions gradually.
Invisalign aligners are also smooth, unlike metal braces. The aligners fit snugly against your teeth, reducing the discomfort that can come from rubbing against sharp edges.
One of the best benefits of Invisalign is that the aligners do not put unnecessary pressure on the gums. The aligners are smooth to the touch, and because they are not created from metal, they will not irritate the gums.
If you experience persistent mouth sores, this could be a sign that you could benefit from Invisalign. Another reason Invisalign is better than traditional braces is that it’s less painful.
Invisalign is barely noticeable. The clear plastic aligners are practically invisible when worn. Patients feel more confident in social situations or on the job when undergoing treatment.
