Are you looking to straighten your teeth but don’t want to have to go through the whole experience of traditional braces? Well, with Invisalign you can have that straight smile you have always wanted and do it discreetly.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment designed to be discreet and virtually invisible. Clear aligners are used to straighten your teeth over a 12 to 18-month period. These aligners are completely removable and look like mouth guards. Aligners are switched out every two weeks, and each aligner moves your teeth a little more until treatment is completed.
While Invisalign is very popular among adults, it can also be effective for teenagers and young adults too. There are many reasons why more and more people are choosing Invisalign over other orthodontic treatment options.
Treatment time for traditional braces can take years. That’s a lot of time to have all that uncomfortable metal in your mouth. Invisalign treatment can take a little as a year to 18 months to complete.
While the metal and rubber bands that come along with traditional braces can be incredibly uncomfortable, with Invisalign you will barely even notice you are wearing anything. Since the aligners are designed like mouth guards, they are smooth and comfortable with no rubbing against the inside of the mouth.
With traditional braces, the list of things you can’t eat and drink can be extensive. Something as simple as brushing and flossing can even be a giant chore. Invislaign aligners are completely removable. That means that you can take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss like normal.
