No One Has to Know Your Secret!

Invisalign makes it possible to straighten and perfect your smile without all the metal. That’s an improvement, isn’t it? Wearing braces no longer has to hold the stigma that it used to. A beautiful smile can be yours without all the hardware and in less time. Typically, you can get that perfect smile in about year. Move over metal braces, make room for Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Basically, Invisalign is a set of removable invisible braces. A 3-dimensional scan is taken of your teeth to create aligners specifically for your smile. These clear removable aligners are then worn for a series of 2-week periods in order to gradually move teeth into the correct position. They are removed to brush teeth, floss, eat, and drink. As your teeth gradually move, another set of aligners is worn, as part of the series, until the desired alignment of your teeth is achieved. The aligners are kept clean by using a special solution designed specifically for them. The total number of aligners used is unique to the individual and at the discretion of the dentist. Generally, a straight beautiful smile can be achieved within a years’ time.

What does Invisalign correct?

These removable braces can successfully treat a variety of different issues, both simple and extensive. They can correct teeth that have issues with crowding, wide spacing, over and underbites, and crossbites. Invisalign is an effective treatment for both teens and adults. Continual advancements have made it easier to better treat many different problems.

What are the benefits?

The first obvious benefit is that Invisalign is unnoticeable. The clear aligners make it easy to get that perfect smile without everyone knowing you’re wearing braces. They are removable, which is convenient in terms of eating and doing a variety of other things without having to worry about how the food will affect your braces. The fact that they are removable also comes in handy when it comes to playing sports and being involved with other athletic activities. Suppose you play contact sports? Invisalign makes it easy for you to remove your aligners for the sake of safety and resume wearing them after the activity. However, the biggest benefit is the beautiful straight smile. After a years’ time, you have a great new smile to show off.

Invisalign is an effective and convenient method of correcting a smile. The aligners offer clear, removable comfort and fit an active lifestyle. Because they are removable, it’s easy to take them off to play sports or eat your favorite dish. Unfortunately, metal braces don’t offer that kind of versatility and can be painful and uncomfortable. Getting a perfect smile no longer requires that you forgo your favorite foods, or sit out contact sports. Say yes to a better way.
