Teens and adults who need to straighten crooked teeth, but don’t want to wear braces, can enjoy a more discreet solution with Invisalign® clear braces. Custom-made from comfortable, clear acrylic, Invisalign’s aligners are a more convenient and cosmetically-appealing alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment. By doing away with brackets and wires, Invisalign can help you achieve the straighter smile you deserve without the inconvenience that might prevent you from wearing braces. Since they are nearly-invisible when placed over your teeth, Invisalign aligners can also help you remain confident as you wear them throughout the day.
If you’ve ever worn braces, or known someone who has, then you might be familiar with the fact that braces require special considerations – particularly when it comes to food. Because the brackets are attached to your teeth, certain food particles are bound to get stuck between them. With Invisalign, however, you can remove your aligners before every meal, so you can still enjoy your favorite foods without worrying.
Like eating, brushing and flossing your teeth also involve a bit more effort when you wear braces. Cleaning around the brackets and wires will require special instruments to avoid damaging the braces, and the process can take longer than it otherwise would. Removing your aligners before you brush and floss will allow you to clean your teeth with the same ease and effectiveness as before.
Even without removing your aligners, Invisalign still grants you the ability to strengthen your teeth without self-consciousness. Each aligner in the series is crafted to fit snugly and comfortably over your teeth, so they remain nearly-invisible as you speak and smile.
