Invisalign® Clear Braces Straighten Teeth Discreetly
When teeth are not aligned properly, the imbalance in your smile’s cosmetic appearance is only one of the consequences. The rest involve how well your bite functions when it cannot find proper balance, and the potential damages to your teeth and jaw structures that could result. Still, appearance is often the reason adults choose to straighten their teeth. With Invisalign® clear braces, you can enjoy the benefits of a straighter smile without having to undergo traditional orthodontic treatment. Without brackets and wires on your teeth, Invisalign helps keep your treatment discreet, as well as more convenient than metal braces.
Invisalign’s® Clear Aligners
Invisalign consists of a series of clear acrylic aligners; the exact number of which depends on your specific needs. The aligners are designed to fit comfortably over your teeth, but to provide pressure where necessary to gently nudge crooked teeth into proper alignment. When you change a current aligner for the next, it will continue to guide your teeth through the prescribed path of movement, until your teeth are finally positioned and aligned properly.
Advantages of Invisalign®
Because Invisalign doesn’t require brackets and wires, and since the aligners can be removed briefly as needed, the aligners provide several benefits over traditional braces, including;
Variety in your diet – you can remove the aligners before you eat, so you don’t have to drastically change your diet to avoid getting food stuck in your braces.
Convenient and effective hygiene – removing the aligners also allows you to brush and floss your teeth more effectively and conveniently, reducing your risks of tooth decay and gum disease.
More confidence in your smile during treatment – Invisalign is virtually invisible, and will remain discreet as you speak and smile with the aligners in place.
Greater overall comfort – unlike the brackets and wires of braces, which have rough components, clear aligners are constructed from solid, smooth acrylic and will not scratch and scrape nearby soft oral tissues.
