The Invisalign® system is becoming increasingly more popular with individuals who need braces. Their ability to straighten misalignments of the teeth in relatively the same amount of time as conventional metal braces is just one reason why people are choosing to use them. Their convenience is apparent when you weigh the benefits.
Invisible: The Invisalign® aligners are invisible and snap onto the edge of your teeth. Because of how they fit and the clear resin that is used to create them, no one will even know you are wearing them. They are small and lightweight and won't disrupt how you speak.
Easy to Remove: The Invisalign® aligners snap easily onto the edge of your teeth. They will remain firmly in place until you decide to remove them. You can take them out before you attend meetings, meet with friends, as well as before you eat.
Easy to Clean: Because they snap on and off of the teeth smoothly, the aligners are extremely easy to clean. It also makes it easy for you to brush and floss your teeth. Before meals, remove the aligners. This eliminates food becoming trapped. Before bed, remove the aligners and thoroughly brush and floss your teeth before putting them back in place.
No Food Restrictions: Unlike conventional braces that trap food and create a higher risk for cavities, you can remove the aligners before meals. No trapped food means healthier teeth and fewer risks of cavities. You can even eat popcorn!
Less Risk of Damage: Conventional braces have brackets that are glued to the surface of your tooth. Over time, this can cause discolorations and can actually damage the surface of your teeth. With Invisalign® aligners, nothing is attached to your teeth and there are no wires to poke or tear at your gums or soft tissues.
If convenience sounds good to you, Invisalign® offers you many benefits. Your dentist can answer your questions and help you decide if the Invisalign® system is right for you.
