It can be embarrassing and discouraging to have crooked teeth. It’s tough to smile with confidence when you are worried that others are noticing your smile imperfections – but then again, it’s also hard to smile proudly when you have a mouth full of metal braces.
Fortunately, there is a solution for patients who want to fix their smiles without resorting to traditional braces: the Invisalign clear braces system.
The Basics of Invisalign
The basic concept of Invisalign is simple: rather than getting metal brackets bonded to their teeth, Invisalign patients wear clear, removable trays made of hard plastic. Over time, the trays are traded out to guide the teeth into their proper places.
The Many Benefits of Invisalign
Why endure months or even years of metal braces when you don’t have to? Using the Invisalign system, you can correct your uneven bite or crooked teeth without any of the downsides of traditional braces.
- The most obvious benefit of Invisalign aligners is that they are clear. Most people don’t even notice when others are wearing them. This is one of the main reasons many teenagers and adults choose Invisalign.
- Since the clear trays are removable, patients do not have to adjust their diets as they would to protect metal braces. They can enjoy all their favorite foods, and they won’t have to worry about getting food stuck in them. Of course, the fact that they are removable also means it is much easier for patients to brush and floss properly, too.
- Many patients find Invisalign to be more comfortable to wear than metal braces, as the trays are made of smooth plastic rather than mouth-irritating metal.
- Patients can whiten their teeth as they straighten them. Invisalign trays can do double duty as whitening trays!
The Invisalign system makes it easy for patients to achieve their dream smiles without making it obvious to anyone else. Invisalign straightens crooked teeth effectively and discreetly. Getting orthodontic treatment has never been so attractive!
