Few people are excited to receive metal braces. In addition to being uncomfortable, many find traditional orthodontics to be unsightly, as well. Thankfully, you have an alternative. With Invisalign, patients can obtain an even smile free of misalignment without undergoing traditional orthodontics. In today’s blog, your Rochester dentist, Dr. Gilly Calcagno, explains how Invisalign provides a clear alternative to metal braces.
How Do Clear Braces Work?
Invisalign uses a series of custom-made, clear plastic aligners instead of metal braces. The aligners gradually and gently reposition your teeth, correcting your smile in as little time as one year. Simply wear the Invisalign aligners daily for the amount of time specified by Dr. Calcagno, typically between 20 and 22 hours. Approximately every two weeks you will upgrade to a new set of clear braces as your smile becomes transformed.
Advantages of the Invisalign System
Unlike metal braces, your aligners can be removed before meals or special occasions. As a result, patients no longer need to alter their diets or avoid certain foods that would have become stuck or damaged metal braces. Removable aligners also make brushing and flossing your teeth easier, improving your oral hygiene. Patients rarely report the gum and cheek irritation normally experienced with traditional orthodontics. Invisalign also saves both time and money by requiring fewer office visits. In most cases, patients only need to see Dr. Calcagno once every six weeks.
