Years ago, the only real solution to crooked and misaligned teeth was metal braces. Understandably, many patients dreaded having to receive such a treatment. The thought of wires and brackets on the teeth is certainly not a pleasant one. Now, thanks to advances in dentistry, there is an alternative to traditional orthodontics.
Invisalign is a simple and quite affordable treatment for the straightening of teeth. It has become popular due to the fact that these braces consist of a series of invisible aligners that are worn for a specified amount of time. Your dentist will likely recommend that the sets be switched out every two weeks or so for optimum results. Invisalign orthodontic treatment is highly effective for those patients that require treatment for minor issues such as spacing issues or mild crowding.
Not only does Invisalign solve the problem of a patient’s displeasure over metal braces in terms of appearance, but it also provides noticeable results in a shorter amount of time for many patients.
Another great benefit of Invisalign is that the aligners are removable. You can take them out to eat, allowing more freedom than traditional braces when it comes to your diet. It also allows you to brush without restrictions, keeping your dental habits unhindered. One of the most enjoyable things about Invisalign is that they require none of the adjustments that come with metal and wire braces. This means less time in the dentist’s chair and no hassles in keeping them tight and fitted.
Among patients and dentists alike, Invisalign is becoming a popular choice for teeth straightening. Affordable, convenient and aesthetically pleasing, Invisalign is the clear alternative to traditional braces.
