Everyone wants straight beautiful teeth, but sometimes the thought of traditional braces can be daunting. Having metal and wires on their teeth can make some patients feel self conscious and less confident during social situations. Some patients who would put up with the metal for the smile they’ve always wanted are held back because of the two year time commitment.
With Invisalign clear braces, we have braces options that can suit everyone. The obstacles that come with metal braces and wires don’t have to keep you from achieving perfect straight teeth. Now with Invisalign, patients now have a choice that is clear.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign braces are an alternative to traditional braces. Instead of using metal and wires to straighten your teeth, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners. These aligners are custom made to fit your teeth and feel comfortable. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign braces appear invisible. Your family and friends won’t even know you are wearing braces. Invisalign works by gradually moving your teeth into place. Every couple weeks, as your teeth adjust into their new position, you will be given a new aligner to help your teeth continue to progress. In the meantime, you can enjoy all the activities that you enjoyed before you decided to have your teeth straightened.
Invisalign braces are completely removable and safe. Patients with Invisalign can still enjoy all of their favorite foods and activities. With traditional braces, patients have to learn how to brush around the braces and clean difficult areas in their mouth. With Invisalign, patients can take out their aligners before they start to brush their teeth. Once they are done brushing and flossing, they can put the invisalign aligner back in their mouth.
