Invisalign® offers a wealth of advantages both during and following treatment. If you are weighing your orthodontic treatment options, consider the following:
Invisible TreatmentFor many adults considering orthodontia, the idea of wearing bulky metal braces for any period of time can be a deterrent from pursuing treatment. In contrast to traditional braces, Invisalign® uses clear aligners to reposition misaligned teeth. Patients can maintain a professional appearance while undergoing treatment.
Convenient TreatmentIn addition to providing an aesthetic advantage, the clear aligners are also removable. Rather than having to visit the dentist for adjustment, Invisalign® patients are able to swap out their aligning trays at home every 10 days in accordance with their treatment plan.
Easy MaintenanceThe ability to remove the trays also allows patients to maintain an effective oral hygiene regimen during treatment. Instead of having to maneuver floss and tooth brushes around metal brackets and wires, patients remove the trays before meals and brushing and flossing their teeth. This easy hygiene regimen helps patients maintain their oral health, preventing cavities from damaging the teeth. To clean trays, patients can use specialized Invisalign® cleaning crystals or a number of other cleaning methods.
Comfortable Aligning TraysInvisalign® does not require metal brackets or wires during treatment. Made of a flexible yet sturdy thermoplastic, the aligning trays used are created to precisely fit each unique dentition. Patients do not need to worry about discomfort from soft tissue irritation or unsecured brackets.
