Facts About Invisalign
Because many patients believe metal braces are their only option to get a straight and beautiful smile, they never receive treatment. What many don't realize is they can achieve a straighter smile without the need for metal braces. Invisalign uses a series of transparent plastic aligners that are nearly invisible when placed over the teeth, making them the perfect choice for anyone who wants to achieve a straighter smile without drawing additional attention to themselves during treatment.
Although treatment timelines vary considerably from patient to patient, Invisalign treatments are significantly shorter than conventional braces. Our dentist can provide you with an estimated timeline after evaluating your teeth and drafting a treatment plan.
The aligners are custom-made to fit snugly, yet comfortably, over your teeth. Our dentist will take detailed 3D images of your teeth to develop your custom-made aligners to maximize your comfort and ensure your treatment is as efficient as possible.
Easy to Clean
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are easy to clean. You can remove the Invisalign aligners and clean them whenever you like. It's also easy to brush and floss your teeth when there are no metal brackets or wires to work around.
Conventional braces with brackets are cemented to the teeth until treatment is complete. This makes oral care difficult and restricts the types of food that can be eating during treatment. Invisalign aligners are removable so oral care is easier than ever and you can enjoy your favorite foods throughout your treatment.
To ensure each patient's safety, Invisalign aligners are crafted from BPA-free plastic. This ensures no harmful toxins are released throughout the course of treatment.
