Invisalign is the leading teeth straightening alternative to braces. This modern technology uses a custom retainer that is removable to gently shift your teeth into alignment. They can be easily taken out for eating, drinking, and brushing; then easily put back in for daily use and overnight. Invisalign comes with a simple cleaning kit or can just be brushed and rinsed nightly along with your bedtime routine. The invisalign care routine is a lot less strenuous than the straightening alternative of braces but a retainer does have some limitations.
Many people experience discomfort with traditional braces. Loose ends of wire can protrude into the cheeks and gums causing sores and scratches. Invisalign retainers are gentle on the mouth and made of a smooth plastic that fits snug over a row of teeth. Invisalign is a more comfortable alternative to braces while maintaining it’s core function of teeth straightening.
Invisalign works where you will be given a new custom set of molds every several weeks, according to the progressive shift in your teeth. Your teeth will slowly straighten into the smile you’ve wanted without the pain or appearance that can come from having braces. Traditional braces can take up to 5 years to complete their process, with frequent tightening of the wires. Invisalign takes typically a year to 18 months without any tightening or using those rubber bands!
Invisalign is not just for crooked teeth, but can solve cases including spacing of teeth, overbite, underbite, and crossbite. It can even help those who grind their teeth at night. Straight teeth not only look and feel great, but they can actually help your gums fit your mouth better to allow for defense against periodontal diseases. Invisalign can help improve your overall dental health while boosting your confidence in your smile! Come in for a consultation and talk to your dentist about starting the Invisalign program.
