Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Invisalign® clear aligners are made from biocompatible plastic, and are virtually invisible when worn over your teeth. Unlike the brackets and wires necessary for orthodontic braces to work, Invisalign consists of a series of aligners designed to guide crooked teeth into their desired positions. The aligners are not only highly discreet, but can also be removed temporarily to make brushing, flossing, eating, and drinking more comfortable and convenient.
Benefits of Invisalign® Aligners
Many adults who seek to straighten their teeth do so in the hopes of improving the appearance of their smiles. Therefore, the near-invisibility of the aligners is one of the more popular benefits of Invisalign. Patients can straighten their teeth without worrying about the potential embarrassment of wearing conspicuous metal braces.
Besides appearance, convenience can also be affected by orthodontic treatment. Braces require due diligence to avoid food becoming stuck between the brackets and wires, and to effectively brush and floss between the small components attached to your teeth. With Invisalign, you can remove the aligners to eat your meals more comfortably and clean your teeth more effectively.
Traditional braces rely on frequent visits to the orthodontist to maintain the right amount of tension in the arch wire. By contrast, Invisalign treatment is progressed by switching each aligner for the next in the series, and can be accomplished with fewer visits to the dentist for the duration of your treatment.
