Invisalign is the clear alignment treatment your smile has been waiting for! No longer does straightening your smile require metal brackets, poking wires, and rubber bands. Invisalign utilizes clear custom-made aligners to shift and rotate teeth into the desired position. These aligners can be removed easily from the mouth to eat, floss, and brush as you normally would.

What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a fantastic alternative to traditional braces. It offers patients the ability to straighten their smile without the hassle of metal wires and brackets, and allows patients to remove the aligners whenever they need to. Invisalign uses clear alignment trays that gradually shift teeth over time, and offer extreme comfort and subtlety during the whole process. These clear alignment trays are virtually invisible, and are created to snugly fit your teeth. They can be removed to eat and drink, or to brush your teeth. This makes them an attractive alternative to traditional braces for many patients. Braces are a permanent fixture that will typically remain in a patient’s mouth for two years. Invisalign also lasts about 18 months, but offers much more flexibility and convenience.
Invisalign vs. Braces
The main difference between Invisalign and traditional braces is the fact that you virtually cannot see Invisalign. Some patients are self conscious of their smile, and adding metal hardwire to their dental care could increase that. Invisalign helps patients with confidence and sense of self. It is an aesthetically pleasing option that will still allow you to improve the appearance of your smile. Another key difference is the fact that Invisalign is meant to be taken out. You need to take your alignment trays out every time you eat or drink, especially for hot liquids like tea or coffee. You also need to take the trays out so that you can properly brush and floss your teeth. Many patients prefer this over traditional braces for a few reasons. Braces prevent patients from eating certain foods for fear of damaging the wires or because food may easily get caught between teeth. Flossing can be very difficult with braces, and plaque buildup is very easy to occur. Invisalign takes away those issues and does not require patients to sacrifice their favorite foods.
