When it comes to orthodontic correction, you have choices. Thanks to innovations in the field of orthodontics, traditional braces are not the only option. If you are not looking forward to a mouthful of metal brackets and wires, you may be able to go in a different direction. Invisalign® clear aligners are paving the way for straight teeth for patients of many ages. You may have decided that this alternative is the best way to go when it comes to getting the results that you want to see.
Your Treatment Will Be Barely Noticeable
One of the greatest benefits of choosing Invisalign® is that the aligners are discreet. They are made of a clear, medical-grade plastic and they slide in over your teeth. They are customized to be an exact fit to your teeth through the use of 3D imagery. Once you slide them into place, it will be hard to tell that they are even there. You can go on with your normal routine without sparing a thought to your aligners.
Invisalign® is a More Flexible Form of Treatment
When you choose Invisalign®, you will be going with a more flexible option to correct the position of your teeth. You need to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours every day in order to get the best outcome from your treatment. However, you can remove them while you are cleaning your teeth to ensure that your teeth are healthy while undergoing orthodontic treatment. You can also remove your aligners if you are going to be involved in contact sports or you have a special event coming up. Simply put your aligners back in place as soon as the activity is over.
See Results in About the Same Amount of Time
If Invisalign® is right for you, your treatment time should be about the same as it would be with other forms of orthodontic treatment. Your aligners will be changed every two weeks as your teeth shift. As long as you are conscientious about wearing your aligners the length of time that you should, you will reach your goal of a beautiful smile. Best of all, people won’t even notice you had treatment until it is over.
