Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional braces for many reasons. Clear plastic aligners are created to help gently guide the teeth into the proper place. Every two weeks, a new aligner will be delivered based on the new position of your teeth.
Here are some of the benefits of Invisalign over traditional metal braces:
- The clear plastic aligners are not as noticeable as metal brackets that are placed on your teeth when wearing traditional braces. Invisalign is designed to be invisible. The aligners placed over your teeth are clear, and allow you to go about your day while your teeth are being straightened.
- Most people won’t even notice that you are having any kind of treatment!
- No more food getting stuck in your braces! You can easily pop the Invisalign aligners in and out for mealtimes.
- Oftentimes, after metal braces are removed, there is discoloration around where the braces were anchored. This can be completely avoided with Invisalign aligners.
