Invisalign is a popular option for teens as well as adults who are seeking to have their teeth straightened. While this system produces the same benefits produced by traditional braces, it straightens teeth without the cumbersome inconvenience of wire and brackets.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign makes use of a series of transparent, plastic trays to gradually straighten misaligned teeth. Every tray moves the process a step further in the same method as braces. We will make use of computer imaging to develop a 3-D digital map of your mouth. A lab will use the 3-D images to custom-fabricate a set of straightening trays for your unique situation.
What are the Advantages of Invisalign?
Invisalign has five clear advantages over traditional braces:
- More comfortable – The aligning trays are made of smooth plastic are very comfortable to the inside of the patient’s mouth. You can avoid the uncomfortable experience of wire and brackets poking your mouth and lips for up to three years.
- Quicker results – Invisalign will consistently provide the same results in 9-15 months that may take 2-3 years to see with traditional braces.
- Better visual appeal – If you have known anyone who wears traditional wire braces, you know the jokes and teasing that accompany the wires. The Invisalign trays are made of transparent plastic and are virtually invisible to the naked eye. The majority of people will simple not even know that you are wearing them.
- Easier eating – When you are wearing metal braces, there is an accompanying list of food items that must be avoided during the entire treatment process. With Invisalign, there is simply no list. When you are ready to eat, you quickly remove the aligner tray and eat what you have always eaten. After you eat, simply put the tray back in place.
