If you have considered correcting issues with your teeth such as crowding or spacing, but do not like the idea of traditional metal braces, then Invisalign might be right for you. Invisalign is a metal free tooth movement option that is suitable for both children and adults. And just as the name implies, it is virtually invisible. Very few people will detect that you have the appliance in your mouth.
Invisalign is a series of clear tooth aligners worn daily on the teeth for six months and sometimes longer until the desired tooth movements are achieved. The aligners do exactly as the name suggests. They line up the teeth in their ideal position. Each time you visit the dentist, you will receive sets of aligners, each of which is worn for approximately two weeks before being changed to a new set. The progress of the tooth movement is monitored at visits that occur every one to two months.
There are many benefits to Invisalign over traditional braces:
- The aligners are removed to eat and drink
- The aligners are removed to brush and floss
- It is easy to speak with the aligners in place
- The appliance is comfortable to wear, as there are no wires or brackets
- Invisalign can treat a wide array of dental issues, such as crowding, spacing and bite issues
