If you have always wanted to improve your smile but hated the idea of traditional metal braces, Invisalign® might be what you are looking for. From being able to discreetly straighten your teeth to cutting the treatment time in half, Invisalign offers a variety to patients who choose it.
However, similar to other cosmetic dentistry procedures, it is always a good idea to learn as much as possible prior to starting treatment.
An Adult-Friendly Alternative
Invisalign® is an adult-friendly way to straighten your teeth without having to wear metal braces. There is nothing wrong with traditional braces, however, some working professionals prefer to keep their teeth straightening journey private. Invisalign® allows you to do just that. The clear, nearly invisible retainers make straightening your teeth easy without everyone knowing.
Thanks to their sleek design, you can straighten your teeth discreetly without the need for metal braces, rubber bands, or adjustments.
More Comfortable Than Traditional Braces
Invisalign® retainers are also more comfortable than traditional braces. Since you only need to wear soft, pliable retainers, you never have to worry about painful wires in your mouth or gums.
Shorter Treatment Times
Another benefit of choosing Invisalign® is that treatment times are usually shorter as well. Many patients see the final result between eight to 12 months, instead of 12 to 24 months with traditional braces. It is important to note that treatment timeframes will vary. Patients who only require minor correction will have shorter treatment duration when compared to patients who need further correction to reposition their teeth.
You Can Eat Whatever You Like
Finally, you can also eat all of your favorite foods when you use Invisalign®. When braces are affixed to teeth, a lot of foods are off-limits. Invisalign retainers are removable, so when it comes time to eat, all you need to do is take them out and enjoy your meal.
