Invisalign: an Invisible Substitute
for Conventional Braces
Many of us grew up when the only method for straightening teeth was metal braces, but advances in orthodontics now allow dentists to correct tooth alignment without metal brackets, wires and rubber bands.
Invisalign is even better than “invisible” braces—it is a system of clear, removable aligners that gradually guide your teeth into ideal alignment. Using a 3D image of your mouth to develop a treatment plan, your Invisalign dentist will custom-make a series of aligners. You wear one aligner for about two weeks before you graduate to another until you achieve the desired alignment. The time it takes for complete teeth realignment with Invisalign is comparable to that with braces.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign has many advantages over conventional or invisible braces:
- Removable—allows for more thorough cleaning of your mouth and your teeth straightening hardware.
- Comfortable—custom-fit aligners are designed to gently encourage shifting without uncomfortable manual adjustments needed with traditional braces.
- Fits Active Lifestyles—clear plastic aligners that completely cover teeth minimize the risk of tearing soft surrounding tissues on metal brackets or jagged edges, reducing the risk of injury during rigorous activity.
- Keeps the Focus on You—nearly invisible aligners keep the focus on your, not your mouth gear, significantly reducing the self-consciousness reported with traditional (even invisible) braces.
Teeth straightening with Invisalign also corrects bite (occlusion) issues, which, in some cases,may improve overall dental and periodontal health.
