What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an exciting new way to improve your smile without the use of traditional metal braces. Invisalign is a trusted and reliable orthodontic treatment option that has existed since 1997. Invisalign uses a set of clear aligner trays that are custom-made to fit your mouth. You simply wear each aligner in the set for a certain period of time, until it is time to wear the next aligner in the set. The aligners gradually move and shift your teeth into the proper position for a beautiful and improved smile.
What Are The Benefits Of Invisalign?
Invisalign offers some advantages that traditional metal braces cannot provide. Some of the benefits include:
Ability To Remove Aligner Trays
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign’s clear aligner trays allow you to remove the trays on your own. This is beneficial because you can enjoy all of your favourite foods without restrictions. Simply, take off your aligner before eating, and replace it after your meal. Removal of the aligner trays also makes brushing and flossing easier since no special tools are required to clean your teeth.
Some people are hesitant to wear traditional metal braces due to their appearance. Invisalign’s clear aligner trays are virtually invisible when worn over your teeth. Some patients report having completed their Invisalign treatment without most of their friends and co-workers knowing about it.
Many patients report the Invisalign aligner trays as comfortable. However, some patients who have metal braces may complain of discomfort when the metal brackets press against their lips or cheeks.
