What Are Some Benefits?

Here are some of the primary benefits of wearing Invisalign:

Practically invisible
Unlike traditional metal braces which are unattractive, Invisalign aligners blend in seamlessly with your teeth for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Eat whatever you like
One of the downsides of traditional braces is the food restrictions. You can’t enjoy certain crunchy or chewy foods. Because you remove the Invisalign aligners before you eat you can enjoy all of your favorite foods!

A comfortable way to straighten your smile
Metal braces are often uncomfortable to wear and getting them tightened periodically is something many orthodontic patients dread. Invisalign aligners use SmartTrack® Technology so they are comfortable to wear and easy to put on and remove.

Makes keeping your teeth clean easy
With traditional braces, brushing and flossing can be challenging. The metal brackets, wires and ties can get in the way of toothbrush bristles removing debris from the tight spaces between the teeth. Because you remove the Invisalign aligners before brushing your teeth it’s easy to maintain your oral hygiene habits.

Fewer trips to the dentist
When wearing metal braces, it’s necessary to visit the dentist to tighten the rubber bands or wires. With Invisalign, you’ll receive aligner trays for not only the current phase but the next several phases. Because you’ll receive the trays in advance you won’t need as many trips to our office.

Easier to clean
Keeping your aligners clean is easy. Simply remove them, gently brush them with toothpaste and warm water and then put them back in your mouth.

FAQ

How many hours a day do I need to wear the aligners?

For optimal results it’s important that you wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day, removing them only to eat and brush your teeth.

Will people know I’m wearing Invisalign?

Because the aligners are virtually invisible, most people won’t know you’re wearing them unless you tell them!

Will my speech be affected by wearing the aligners?

While there’s always an adjustment period when starting orthodontic treatment, the more you speak while wearing your aligners, the quicker you will adjust. Invisalign aligners are quite comfortable and most patients get used to them very quickly.
