When your teeth are crooked, they not only affect your smile’s appearance, but also the balance and function of your entire bite. Your jaw joints and muscles can suffer from the imbalance, and your teeth might become damaged or forced further out of alignment due to the excessive bite pressure. Therefore, the benefits of straightening your crooked teeth go beyond improving your smile’s appearance, and the benefits of Invisalign® aligners allow you to straighten them without the need for metal braces.
They really are invisible.
Invisalign® aligners are not crafted from brackets and wires, but from clear, safe acrylic. Each aligner is designed to fit snugly and comfortably over your teeth, making them virtually invisible to everyone else (even when up close). If you want to straighten your crooked teeth but are worried about how traditional braces will make your smile look in the meantime, then Invisalign’s clear aligners can help you keep your treatment more discreet.
They fit a variety of orthodontic needs.
The beauty of orthodontic aligners is that they can address many of the same problems that traditional orthodontic braces can. Before recommending them, though, your dentist will perform a comprehensive examination, using digital imaging equipment to help diagnose your malocclusion and determine if Invisalign® aligners are right for you.
You can remove them.
Invisalign® aligners are made to fit easily and comfortably over your teeth, and you progress through your treatment by routinely changing them for the next aligners in the series. You can also temporarily remove them before eating to avoid damaging the aligners, and before brushing and flossing your teeth for more successful daily hygiene.
