What makes Invisalign clear braces so unique?
Invisalign has really revolutionized the way we treat many orthodontic cases at our Pelham dental office. For years, the only option for fixing crooked teeth was traditional metal and wire braces. Because of the inconvenience of metal braces, many adults simply let the problem go untreated.
While Invisalign aligners may not be the correct orthodontic treatment for everyone, they do offer many advantages:
- Because Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic, they are virtually unnoticeable and more aesthetically pleasing than obtrusive metal braces.
- Invisalign aligners are completely removable. This is a huge advantage over traditional braces because they can be taken out while eating, eliminating the problem of food debris becoming lodged in brackets and wires. The ability to remove them for brushing and flossing also makes oral hygiene much more efficient.
- Another important advantage over metal braces is that Invisalign aligners are made of smooth plastic. This makes them much more comfortable to wear, and eliminates the irritation and soreness often experienced with traditional braces.
- You will be able to actually see the progress you are making during your treatment because you are given a series of aligners that you change every two weeks. When you move to the next set of aligners, you will actually be able to see the difference as your teeth gradually move into their proper position.
