Are you self-conscious about your smile? Do you hide your crooked teeth when attending high profile job meetings, family events or even during day to day activities? If you have crooked, uneven teeth or a painful overbite, Invisalign may be the treatment you have been looking for.
Invisalign is a type of braces that straightens teeth without brackets, bands or wires. Using personalized aligners, your teeth will be slowly shifted back into place over time. These aligners are changed every two weeks for fresh, effective treatment.
Invisalign is worn anywhere between 20 and 22 hours a day and should be removed when eating, brushing teeth or flossing. Aligners are worn for around nine to 18 months, but often varies case to case.
The best part about Invisalign is that, as the name implies, the aligners are virtually invisible. Adults can straighten their teeth without easily-spotted brace wires or distracting metal.
Other Invisalign Benefits
There are many other benefits associated with getting Invisalign, including:
- Active lifestyles: Are you a part of a intramural sports team? Do you play a high-contact sport? Invisalign is easy to remove and put back on before and after games. Don’t get cut by wire braces or skip wearing a (very important) mouth guard because of your orthodontics.
- Ease of upkeep: Cleaning Invisalign isn’t hard with available cleaning kits or simple lukewarm water and a toothbrush. If you’re always on the go with your schedule, your kid’s schedules and work, Invisalign won’t slow you down.
- Optimal eating options: Unlike other forms of orthodontic treatment, such as regular wire braces, there are no dietary restrictions. The ability to remove Invisalign before snacks and meals allows wearers to eat when and what they like.
