If you have mild to moderate alignment issues, Invisalign® may be the right orthodontic solution for you. Using gentle pressure, these clear plastic trays can fix issues like crooked teeth, overbites, overlapping teeth, and small gaps. In this blog post, we discuss a few benefits of Invisalign clear aligner therapy.
- Nearly Invisible
- Short Treatment Time
- Minimal Time in the Dental Chair
One of the biggest benefits is that the clear aligners are removable. When you eat, brush, and floss, you take them out. This means your regular oral hygiene is mostly unchanged, except that you must also keep track of your aligners and keep them clean. Be sure to wear the aligners at least 20-22 hours a day for the best results.
Invisalign trays are clear so you can barely see them! This means you can smile and talk with confidence. You won’t feel self-conscious or want to hide your smile during this discreet straightening process.
On average, it takes between 12-18 months to get the smile of your dreams with Invisalign. Many people notice improvement just a few weeks into the treatment.
With Invisalign, you pick up new trays in the series every two weeks or so but no adjustments or tweaking of wires are needed. Fewer appointments mean less time in the dentist’s chair and more time living your life.
Invisalign clear aligners are made from a patented thermoplastic material. They’re designed for smoothness and comfort. There are no pokey wires to worry about and most patients report no irritation.
