Invisalign - Sometimes What You Can't See Can Help You
There was a time when, if you wanted to immediately improve the appearance of your teeth, you turned to a cosmetic dentistry practice. If you wanted to straighten your teeth and improve your bite, however, you went to a general dentist who would place conspicuous and often uncomfortable metal wires and brackets on your teeth. If you wanted a cosmetic solution to an orthodontic problem, your best bet was to go to sleep, because it existed only in dreams.
Invisalign® clear aligners – sometimes referred to as “invisible braces” – allow patients to straighten their teeth and correct their bites in approximately the same amount of time as traditional metal braces. However, because they are made of clear plastic, they are barely noticeable, even up close. This makes Invisalign® an ideal treatment option for adults and adolescents who wish to improve their oral health without compromising their smiles.
Before and After Invisalign® Treatment
In addition to their obvious cosmetic benefits, Invisalign® aligners offer a number of practical benefits. Because the aligners are removable, patients can eat whatever they like, whenever they like, including foods that traditional brace wearers must avoid. They can also be removed for dental hygiene purposes, making brushing, flossing, and cleaning the teeth far more convenient. As long as the aligners are worn a full 21 to 22 hours each day, treatment will not be affected by their occasional removal.
