Invisalign is a revolutionary innovation in cosmetic dentistry. Invisalign aligners are made of SmartTrack® material and work to gently ease teeth into place. These clear aligners are easy to use and can give you the smile you’ve always envisioned. Below, you'll find some of the advantages that have made Invisalign a popular treatment option.
The aligners are carefully custom-made to fit your needs. Our dentist at MyStonebridgeDentist.com will guide you through the process of making your aligners and answer any questions you may have during the initial consultation.
One of the biggest factors that deter people from choosing braces is that metal brackets often stand out. Many may feel shy or self-conscious of their teeth with metal brackets and feel it may attract unwanted attention to them. Invisalign, however, is virtually invisible. Made of a clear material, it easily blends in with your natural teeth and doesn’t stand out the way conventional braces do, making them an ideal choice for those who want a low-profile treatment.
Treatment time varies from patient to patient and largely dependent on the severity of their misalignment. Talk to our dentist to find out how long this process will take in your specific case.
Conventional metal braces can often trap food in its brackets or hard to reach places in the mouth, resulting in patients having to perform a more careful oral cleaning during treatment. Invisalign is built to be removable, which makes it easier for patients to enjoy food and drink as they can easily remove the aligners before eating or drinking. Unlike conventional braces, you can also remove Invisalign aligners on a special occasion or while taking pictures. Even when you do wear the aligners, they are clear, making them less noticeable than metal braces. Just make sure to reinsert the aligners back in place as it can take longer to align teeth if they are constantly being removed.
The clear and smooth material makes it a comfortable choice. With no metal rubbing against your inner cheeks or lips, the feeling is very different than wearing conventional metal braces.
Invisalign aligners are BPA-free, so they don't contain any dangerous toxins.
Invisalign aligners require maintenance just like other braces do, but it's a fairly simple process. Whenever you take off the aligners, make sure you brush them properly under warm water before putting them on again. This process prevents and removes any residual bacteria.
Many who have used Invisalign have reported great results in the alignment of their teeth. It is a method that has proven efficient and convenient and thus has increased in popularity among those looking for a straight smile.
