For those looking for discrete orthodontic treatment, clear aligners are the best alternative to traditional or ceramic braces on the market today. They are transparent, removable orthodontic devices made from plastic that are used to adjust teeth.
Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you are wearing. Made with 3D imaging technology, Invisalign® aligners prioritize comfort as they gently correct your teeth.
They are a more visually pleasing and comfortable alternative to traditional braces. No metal brackets or wires means you spend less time getting adjustments and fewer sores or abrasions on your cheeks or gums!
One of the biggest advantages of clear aligners is that they are more visually pleasing as they are clear devices that will go unnoticed, even when the patient smiles.
Since they are removable, clear aligners are easy to clean and can be sanitized overnight. You can easily remove food particles trapped between your teeth and aligner simply by removing the device and quickly washing it off or brushing your teeth.
Clear aligners are more comfortable than traditional or ceramic braces as they have no abrasive brackets to rub up against a patient’s gums. Removable aligners can also be taken off at night meaning patients can sleep in complete comfort.
No Food Restrictions
The fear with bracket-style braces is that certain foods will detach them from the tooth they are attached to. Because invisible aligners can be taken off when the patient is eating, there are no food restrictions like with traditional or ceramic braces.
Invisalign® is the perfect option for those who want a clear and bright smile but do not want to obscure their teeth or wear traditional braces.
