Have you ever hidden your smile because of the way it looks? Would you like straighter teeth? If you’ve ever thought about getting your teeth straightened, you may have thought, “But I don’t want braces!”
Bulky metal brackets and wires are not appealing to most people. We understand. That’s why we offer Invisalign clear aligners.
The Invisalign system uses a series of removable, clear dental aligners which gradually move your teeth with a gentle, constant pressure. One of the best features is that they’re pretty hard to see—almost invisible!
How Is Invisalign Better than Metal Braces?
Invisalign is perfect for adults and teens who are looking for an alternative to metal braces. Here are some of the advantages you could enjoy:
- Time Savings: We can straighten most patients’ smiles in around one year, which is a relatively short time to wait for a beautiful new smile! Also, you only need to visit us every 4–6 weeks during your treatment. We’ll barely interrupt your busy schedule.
- Eat What You Like: Because metal braces are attached to the teeth, patients need to avoid sticky, hard, and chewy foods. Instead of avoiding foods, you can take Invisalign aligners out when you eat, so you can eat what you like!
- Almost Invisible: Of course it’s possible to see Invisalign, but it’s not easy. In contrast, shiny metal braces really stand out. They even push patients’ lips forward. Invisalign aligners are clear, and they’re customized to hug teeth rather than sticking out.
- Easy Cleaning: It’s not easy to brush and floss around metal brackets and wires. Your routine with Invisalign will be simple. Just take the aligners out to brush and floss your teeth normally.
- Less Pain: Many patients hate the feeling of getting their metal braces tightened. The sudden change in tightness can really hurt, but Invisalign aligners just apply a constant, gentle pressure to move your teeth without those sharp pains.
