Wanting a straighter smile is one thing, but wanting to correct misaligned teeth without having to rely on braces is another. Fortunately, this is possible for a large number of patients, thanks to the innovation of Invisalign® clear aligners. Unlike traditional braces, which rely on brackets and wires to gently realign crooked teeth, Invisalign® relies on a series of customized aligners that guide your teeth using continuous, gentle force. To find out if you’re a good candidate and whether or not the aligners can benefit you, ask your dentist about Invisalign® during your next visit.
How do the aligners stay invisible?
Invisalign® clear aligners are called such because they’re virtually invisible. Made from clear, BPA-free acrylic, every aligner is custom-designed to fit the unique contour of your smile. Besides being made from clear material, the aligners are also made specifically according to your teeth so they won’t shift or move when you bite, chew, and speak.
Will I still need frequent maintenance visits?
When you wear orthodontic braces, treatment depends on frequent visits to the dentist or orthodontist to have the wires tightened. These tightening visits are necessary for the braces to continue providing necessary force to move your teeth. With Invisalign®, this force is provided by the shape of your aligners, and progressing through treatment only requires changing your aligners for the next in the series. You’ll still need routine maintenance visits, but not nearly as often as with traditional braces.
How will Invisalign® affect my daily habits?
Because Invisalign® aligners are removable, you don’t have to worry about food sticking in your braces or your toothbrush and floss damaging them. Simply take them off before eating or before brushing and flossing your teeth, and then replace them again once you’ve finished.
