Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that function like braces to help teeth gradually shift into proper alignment. Invisalign aligners are removable, which makes it easier to enjoy your favorite foods. Treatment with Invisalign usually takes about a year but will vary from patient to patient. At Freeman Dental, we use custom-made Invisalign aligners created for you and only you.
A Comparison Between Invisalign and Braces
Invisalign aligners are removable, while braces are bonded to your teeth. This means that with Invisalign, you can brush and floss your teeth normally throughout your treatment. With braces, you’ll need to use special tools to clean your teeth.
Additionally, braces use brackets and wires to move your teeth, which can be uncomfortable and unattractive. Invisalign aligners, on the other hand, are made from a smooth plastic that comfortably fits over your teeth. While braces are noticeable, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible when worn. Invisalign aligners allow you to straighten your teeth without drawing attention to your treatment.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that fit snugly over the teeth to straighten them without brackets and wires. Invisible braces are a popular option for patients who want to straighten their teeth without wearing traditional metal braces.
Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to take them out to eat, brush and floss. As you progress through treatment, you’ll switch your aligners with new ones every two weeks. Each time your aligners are switched out, your teeth will move slightly until they have straightened to their final position.
Many patients report that Invisalign braces are more comfortable than traditional metal braces. Invisalign aligners are made from smooth plastic and fit snugly over your teeth without being painful or irritating.
Invisalign aligners are also removable, so you can take them out when eating or drinking. This gives you the freedom to enjoy all of your favorite foods without worrying about breaking your braces.
Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can eat and drink whatever you want while undergoing treatment. Unlike traditional braces, you can brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
No Dietary Restrictions
Invisalign does not restrict you from eating all your favorite foods. You remove the aligners before each meal and place them back when you are done. You can indulge in popcorn during a movie or eat a juicy burger at a ball game. Your aligners can easily be removed, so you can feel free to eat anything you wish.
More Hygienic Than Traditional Braces
Invisalign aligners are removable, so it’s easier to keep your mouth clean during treatment. You simply take them out to eat and drink, brush your teeth, and floss. The aligners can also be removed for special occasions, like weddings or graduations.
