For many image-conscious teens and adults, correcting misaligned teeth with traditional braces simply isn’t appealing. The thought of spending years with a mouth full of conspicuous metal is enough to deter most people, but thankfully, braces aren’t the only answer anymore. But now, we can straighten teeth without braces using a treatment called Invisalign. Invisalign is an alternative to braces but has minimal impact on your lifestyle. They are also less intrusive and work discreetly for people of any age.
A Cosmetic Approach to Orthodontics Invisalign clear aligners gradually move misaligned teeth into their proper positions, giving you a smile that you can feel proud of without the need for metal brackets and wires. The clear, comfortable aligners are custom made to fit your exact dentition and are virtually invisible to others. You simply wear them day and night, removing them for cleaning and eating as needed. Over the course of your treatment, you’ll switch to the next set of aligners approximately every two to four weeks. At the end of your treatment, you’ll enjoy a dramatically improved smile, free from gaps, misalignment, crowding, and other common orthodontic concerns.
Invisalign can also help you improve your oral health in general. Crooked and crowded teeth are more difficult to clean, increasing your risk of developing tooth decay and periodontal disease. When your teeth are properly aligned, these risks are dramatically decreased.
