Invisalign is one of the most popular orthodontic systems today. If you are like most people, you don’t want to have traditional metallic braces and wires that are cemented on to your teeth. Invisalign is a system where clear, removable trays made with clear PBA-free plastic are inserted into your mouth that apply gentle pressure to your teeth to help get them in their best shape possible. These trays methodically put pressure on your teeth in order to move your teeth into their proper alignment.
Invisalign trays are removed while eating, brushing and flossing, therefore are really easy to take care of. The trays are almost “invisible” so that you can feel your most confident in social settings while your smile is transformed. You do have to wear these trays at least 22 hours a day and it can take 12-24 months for the treatment to be completed on time. There are also fewer restrictions than with traditional braces as there are no wires or brackets that can get caught in food and come off. You will of course have to maintain regular oral hygiene like brushing and flossing to ensure that you do not get cavities or decay in your teeth.
Come in for a consultation and we can evaluate your smile and advise you whether Invisalign is the right choice for you.
