Comparing Clear Aligners and Metal Braces
Our Invisalign orthodontics has many advantages that traditional metal braces don’t and are often the ideal option for our patients. Invisalign aligners are created from virtually invisible plastic, so it’s metal-free and discreet. These custom clear aligners are also removable, so you won’t have to alter your diet or oral hygiene care during treatment! Most patients report that Invisalign clear aligners were comfortable to wear, as they eliminate the sharp wires and brackets of metal braces. The smooth plastic of the clear aligners rarely irritates or cuts your gums, lips, or tongue. Best of all, the Invisalign treatment process is simple to follow for how great the results are!
Straightening Teeth with Invisalign
Our Invisalign treatment process is entirely digital, beginning with scans we take of your teeth using our iTero® intraoral scanner, from which your clear aligners will be designed and created. You’ll wear these clear aligners for 20-22 hours each day and will swap them out for the next about every two weeks. Because these aligners can be removed, they won’t get in the way of your dietary habits, but you’ll have to remove them before you eat or drink any liquid other than water. Your treatment will last as long as you have aligners left in the series. Once treatment is completed, you’ll find your smile is beautifully straight, with teeth that come together comfortably for proper biting and chewing function. You can enjoy your healthy teeth for years to come!
