What is Invisalign?

You want to look and feel your best, but something is stopping you. It’s your smile, and you’re ready to do something about it. But you don’t want to undergo orthodontic treatment with bulky braces. Perhaps you work in a professional setting where you may feel self-conscious wearing braces, or maybe you simply don’t want to see them when you look at yourself in the mirror. Although traditional braces have advanced over the years, there is still another option for those who want to undergo discreet orthodontic treatment: Invisalign®.

What is Invisalign and How Does It Work?

Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment that uses medical-grade plastic aligners to gradually shift the teeth into their proper positions. New aligners are used every two weeks or so as they gently work to correct your crooked teeth or other issue. The aligners are clear, making them discreet and hardly noticeable to others. With this option, teens and adults can straighten their teeth without worrying about braces getting in the way.

What are the Benefits?

The most obvious benefit of Invisalign® is its discretion. However, the treatment offers various other benefits that you might not have previously considered, including:

The aligners are removable – This means you can take them out before eating and enjoy all of your favorite foods. You won’t have any dietary restrictions with Invisalign®.
You can maintain optimal oral hygiene – Many braces wearers find it difficult to clean their teeth with brackets and wires covering them. Since the Invisalign® aligners are removable, you can still brush and floss your teeth like normal. This means you can maintain great oral hygiene throughout your orthodontic treatment.
The aligners are comfortable – Invisalign® is known to be a comfortable alternative to braces, as the aligners are thin and smooth. They are custom-made for your mouth.
