Invisalign: The Easy Way to Improve your Smile
Getting straight teeth doesn't have to mean dealing with uncomfortable metal orthodontics. If you've been dealing with misaligned teeth and are looking for a more sophisticated way to get the treatment you want, Invisalign® provides a discreet alternative to metal braces.
The Benefits of Clear Aligner Orthodontics
Metal braces move your teeth into better alignment by way of brackets, bonded to the surfaces of teeth, which are threaded with metal wires. While this system produces results, it's hard to avoid the distracting effect that metal has on the appearance of your smile.
For many patients, choosing Invisalign® presents significant benefits over metal appliances, which include:
Because there are no metal components used in this system of clear aligners, there is much less likelihood that your orthodontic appliance will irritate soft tissue. Invisalign® also isn't bonded to your teeth; you can remove the aligner trays to keep your normal daily routine, like eating the foods you enjoy and brushing and flossing without the aid of special dental tools. Invisalign® provides discreet, cosmetically-appealing treatment that many patients find to be a preferable alternative to traditional braces.
Does Invisalign® Work?
Contrary to the way braces move your teeth into position, Invisalign improves alignment by using a series of custom-molded, see-through trays. These trays are made to snugly fit your teeth at each phase of treatment, with every new aligner coaxing your teeth toward your ideal smile. Invisalign® is effective at correcting common orthodontic issues that many patients face. We recommend Invisalign for mild to moderate dental problems, such as:
- Crowded teeth
- Poor spacing between teeth
- Tilted, tipped, or twisted teeth
