The Invisalign Advantage
For those patients who would like a straighter smile, or to align their over or underbite there are many orthodontic treatments available. One of the most common treatments for crooked or misaligned teeth is metal braces. However, if you would prefer to straighten your smile without the metal wires and brackets there are new and innovative treatments available.
Invisalign uses a set of clear plastic trays to gently guide your teeth into a new, straighter position. The trays are created uniquely for your teeth. You will wear one tray for approximately two weeks and then switch to a newer tray in your series to continue straightening. The average patient will require 20-30 steps in the process, making the treatment last between 9 and 15 months.
Aside from there being no visible wires or brackets to straighten your teeth, there are many unique advantages to Invisalign. Invisalign will not hurt the lining of your mouth or create sores because there are no wires to poke your cheeks or gums. There are also no painful tightening procedures to endure.
Invisalign trays are also removable. This makes it possible for you to continue to eat the foods that you love – even if they are sticky. You can also easily remove your trays for brushing and flossing.
