Teeth come in all shapes and sizes, and come in at different angles, which means that you can end up with a less-than-perfect smile. However, today dental technology brings us lots of options when it comes to straightening teeth. One of our favorites is Invisalign®.
We no longer have to resort to clunky metal brackets and rubber bands to straighten teeth; Invisalign® offers comfortable and discreet alternatives for aligning teeth.
The key difference between Invisalign® and its predecessor is transparency and removability. The Invisalign® trays are clear, which means you do not have to display a mouth full of metal to everyone you speak to. Your orthodontic treatment can be just between you and Dr. Vu.
Food restrictions and the need to fight wires to floss have also gone by the way-side with Invisalign®.
This is possible because Invisalign® aligners are not permanent fixtures. The clear plastic trays that Invisalign® uses to move your teeth are actually meant to be removed while eating. This allows you to eat as you normally would and brush away any debris left on your teeth before popping the trays back in. It also allows you to continue your daily brushing and flossing routine with no need for adjustments.
Invisalign® is customized in its approach to orthodontics; it is not a stock, out-of-the-box treatment. Every smile is different and every patient receives a completely unique treatment plan and trays that are crafted specifically for them. Invisalign® uses computer software to show each patient how their smile will be enhanced throughout the treatment process.
In short, Invisalign® is a great option for teeth straightening because it provides:
- Clear aligners!
- Images of how your smile should be enhanced before treatment starts
- Eat what you want when you want!
- Comparable price when compared to metal braces.
- Removable when needed – However patients encouraged to wear 23 hours a day for optimal results
