A Clear Alternative to Braces with Invisalign®

 In Dental

Braces used to be the only way someone could achieve an aligned smile, but due to dental technology, that’s no longer the case. Invisalign, the clear plastic aligner, can be used with both adults and teens, and may decrease your treatment time, and be more comfortable. Read further about why you should check out Invisalign, in today’s blog post.

Since 1997, Invisalign has been straightening people’s teeth, and has increased in popularity in the last decade. Instead of metal braces that can be uncomfortable and take longer, not to mention being hard to keep clean, these clear aligners make straightening your teeth easier and more fun. Invisalign utilizes technology that includes a series of clear aligners that you change every few weeks that surely realigns your teeth, without anyone knowing you have them on!

With Invisalign, you can do more things, because you can take them out for up to four hours a day, instead of having them fixed on your teeth for the remainder of your treatment. This makes it much easier to keep clean, eat with them, as well as have photos taken.

Some of the benefits of aligning your teeth with Invisalign, include:

  • Less treatment time
  • Thinner
  • More comfortable
  • Reduced expense
  • Invisible
  • Easier with brushing and flossing
  • Less pain
  • Less time spent getting them adjusted
  • Removable
  • No sores
