The Advantages of Invisalign®

If your teeth are crooked or misaligned, it may affect your confidence. Crooked teeth can cause more harm than just your confidence or pride in your smile. Misaligned teeth can negatively affect your bite. This can cause damage, jaw disorders, excessive wear and tear on the teeth, and more. Invisalign® clear aligners can treat some misalignment and crooked teeth, while not being as visibly clunky as traditional metal braces. Invisalign® treatment uses advanced 3D technology to precision scan your teeth and mouth. The scan is used to create the nearly invisible aligners that will be worn on your teeth. Every two weeks, you will change out the aligner as each one moves your teeth little by little into the goal alignment.

Fit Your Lifestyle

Invisalign® clear aligners are not very noticeable on your teeth, which means you can keep up your daily interactions with people as you always did. Most of your friends and family will not notice them until your teeth start to align. Invisalign® aligners are removable. When you eat and drink, you can remove the aligner. You can also remove the aligner when you brush and floss meaning that there is no new special way to brush and floss. If you play a sport or play an instrument with your mouth, Invisalign® aligners will not prevent you from doing so.

Make a Dramatic Difference With Little Irritation

For those qualified for Invisalign®, you can see your treatment plan during your first scan. You can see the goal results to see what the aligners will do for you. Invisalign® can create dramatic results and get you the smile of your dreams. The clear aligners do not irritate your mouth and gums in the way that traditional metal braces can. The Invisalign® appointments are often much shorter than appointments for metal braces meaning that Invisalign® is less irritating to your schedule as well as your mouth.
