Understanding The Many Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is a clear orthodontic system that gradually moves your teeth into a better position. Instead of dealing with uncomfortable fixed braces, Invisalign uses a series of removable aligners. Here are just a few of the many reasons our patients select Invisalign over traditional metal braces:
- Virtually invisible – Let’s face it, braces stick out like a sore thumb. If you’re a child or preteen, that’s usually not an issue. But adults typically don’t want to have clunky metal braces on their teeth, and we don’t blame them. That’s where Invisalign is different. Invisalign plastic aligners are clear and fit perfectly over your teeth. It’s possible that even your closest family members won’t know you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.
- Removable aligners – You’re free to remove the aligners so you can eat and clean your teeth. One of the biggest disadvantages of traditional braces is that you have a long list of foods to avoid. When it comes to Invisalign, you can eat whatever you want.
- Comfortable treatment – It’s no secret that metal brackets and wires can be uncomfortable. Some patients experience cuts in their mouths, while others experience pain from wire tightenings. Invisalign uses smooth aligners that do not irritate the gums or soft tissue in the mouth, and most patients do not experience tenderness when they change out their aligners.
- Shorter treatment times – Some patients have to wear braces for two years or longer. But Invisalign only takes about 12 to 18 months. Just be sure to wear your aligners for at least 20 hours a day to stay on your treatment timeline and to achieve optimal results.
Who Is Invisalign For?
Invisalign is a short-term orthodontic system that is ideal for patients with mildly crooked teeth. It’s important to know that Invisalign is not a treatment for patients with severe alignment issues, but not everyone needs advanced orthodontic care. Dr. Porter and his dental team have used Invisalign to help patients from all walks of life.
