Imagine being able to straighten your teeth without having to wear traditional braces. Thanks to advances in cosmetic dentistry, orthodontic patients can enjoy dramatic results in less than a year, instead of the two years that are standard for traditional wire braces. Straight teeth can even be achieved through an invisible, comfortable process. Invisalign encompasses all these qualities and is one of the most effective cosmetic dental procedures available today.
Invisalign can be used to treat a wide range of dental issues, including overbites, teeth that are too widely spaced apart, and teeth that are too crowded together. With Invisalign, your dentist will fit you for a series of clear plastic aligners, which fit comfortably over your teeth. Patients wear each set of aligners for two weeks, and then replace them with the next in the series. After going through the entire set of aligners, your teeth will be properly aligned.
- With traditional braces, patients have to forgo sticky, crunchy, and hard foods, including apples and popcorn. Invisalign plastic aligners are easily removable, so you simply take them out before eating, and then brush and floss thoroughly before replacing them.
- Invisalign also makes it easy to maintain good oral hygiene. Unlike traditional braces, which often made home dental care a tricky matter, Invisalign aligners can simply be taken out during brushing, flossing, and rinsing.
- While traditional braces were often uncomfortable, Invisalign aligners are subtle and feel natural. They are also transparent, so you can complete the entire process without anyone else noticing your aligners.
