In the past, straightening your teeth meant wearing metal braces. And although traditional braces are very effective, they can interfere with your day-to-day activities and even cause discomfort. Fortunately, you now have a choice, and many patients choose Invisalign for convenience, comfort, and appearance.
Invisalign is a tooth-straightening treatment in which a series of clear, custom-made aligner trays is progressively worn to straighten your teeth. You wear each tray for about two weeks, and after about a year, your teeth will have moved into their final positions.
Invisalign treatments offer major advantages over metal braces:
- Invisalign trays are virtually invisible and easily removable.
- Because you remove the aligner while you eat, there are no food restrictions. You can eat whatever you like.
- You can brush and floss normally to maintain good oral health.
- The smooth plastic aligners are less likely to cause discomfort than metal braces.
Because the aligner trays are made just for you and are fabricated from a nearly invisible plastic, the only thing others will notice is your smile.
Your childs early dental care is an important part of lifelong dental wellness.
