What do you know about Invisalign? An increasingly popular orthodontic procedure, clear braces can provide a straighter smile without a mouthful or metal. Many people are curious about the procedure and would like to enjoy a more attractive smile. In addition, receiving orthodontic treatment can help boost oral health. Are you ready to learn more about Invisalign?
How Do Clear Braces Work?
Instead of using tension from the adjustment of metal braces, the patient wears aligners. Made from a clear plastic, the patient upgrades to a new set once every two weeks on average. When worn correctly, they reposition the teeth and correct misalignment.
The Advantages Over Braces
There are a number of advantages over traditional braces, including:
- Comfort: The aligners are custom-made to ensure they fit comfortably. Patients can then avoid the gum and cheek irritation of traditional orthodontics.
- Convenience: First, the treatment requires fewer office visits. In addition, the aligners can be removed before eating or brushing/flossing. Patients don’t need to avoid certain foods and maintaining a healthy smile is much easier.
- Esthetics: Finally, the orthodontics are practically invisible. For adults and teens, this is a major advantage of the treatment. No need to feel self-conscious about metal orthodontics or worry about the effect treatment can have on your professional appearance.
