Invisalign® is an excellent alternative to metal braces for straightening the teeth and improving the overall appearance of the smile. The clear trays are customized to fit your teeth and are adjusted every two weeks to slowly and painlessly put them into proper alignment. Most adults wear Invisalign® for six months to two years before they see the final results of their straight smile.
While metal braces are nothing to be ashamed of for either teenagers or adults, many adults feel uncomfortable choosing such a noticeable way to correct their crooked teeth. The Invisalign® trays are completely clear and removable so that you can continue to smile with confidence. Unless you show your trays to others when you remove them to eat, no one will be able to tell that you are straightening your teeth.
The Invisalign® trays are designed to fit comfortably over your teeth and will feel smooth against your teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue. The brackets on braces may cause sores in the mouth and might require wax or numbing gel to ease discomfort. The wires might also become loose within their brackets and irritate the soft tissues in your mouth. With Invisalign®, you don’t have to worry about sores or irritation.
You will be instructed to wear the Invisalign® trays continuously except for when you eat, which allows you to enjoy all the food and drinks you normally would. With braces, you must remove many foods from your diet, like chips, hard candy, chewy candy, and any hard food that can potentially damage brackets or wires.
The cost of Invisalign® will vary depending on the extent of correction needed. In general, the cost is very comparable to metal braces.
Straightening your teeth with Invisalign® can not only improve the beauty of your smile, but it can also improve your oral health. With straight and beautiful teeth, oral hygiene becomes much more simple and effective and can reduce your risk for developing gum disease, cavities, and other dental problems.
