A bright smile with healthy straight teeth is a real confidence booster. When your smile looks good you feel good about smiling, and you do it more often! If concerns about misaligned or uneven teeth prevent you smiling as often as you want to, there is a way to solve the problem—Invisalign. The Invisalign system is a convenient and discreet way to correct tooth alignment, and it's suitable for a wide range of people. Is it right for you?
Like traditional braces, the Invisalign system is designed to correct problems with tooth alignment. However, while traditional bracers are capable of treating all such problems—all the way to severe and complex alignment and bite issues—Invisalign is suitable for the treatment of mild to moderate alignment problems, and mild bite issues.
What this means is, Invisalign can’t treat all alignment problems. But it can treat most minor alignment issues, including bite problems, and alignment and spacing issues. If you have one of these problems, Invisalign could be right for you.
For severe alignment issues, especially those affecting children, traditional braces are typically the go-to treatment. For adult’s minor to moderate alignment problems affecting adults and teens, hover, Invisalign has a number of benefits that make it a more desirable treatment option.
Invisalign is discreet. The mouth trays you wear when you have Invisalign treatment are almost undetectable. Wherever you are—at work, at home, at a social event—you can feel confident that people are noticing you, not your dental treatment.
Invisalign is convenient. With traditional braces, there are restrictions on what foods you can eat, and it’s hard to keep bracers and your teeth clean. This isn’t a problem with Invisalign. You remove the mouth trays when you eat, and the trays are easy to keep clean. And since the trays are removable you can keep up with your normal oral hygiene routine without any disruption.
Invisalign is comfortable. There’s always a certain amount of discomfort in having tooth alignment treatment because the treatment is literally forcing your teeth to move into a new alignment. But traditional bracers add to the discomfort, with metal wires and brackets that rub against the lips, gums, and cheeks, causing irritation and pain. This isn’t an issue with Invisalign—the mouth trays are made of a strong but flexible plastic resin and there’s no metal to irritate sensitive oral tissues. It’s a much more comfortable way to have tooth alignment treatment!
