What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is one of the greatest possible ways that you can straighten your teeth because of its flexibility and comfort. Orthodontists have come a long way since traditional braces and permanent orthodontic appliances. Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners that patients wear to very slowly guide their teeth into place over time. Patients will need to change out there aligners once every two weeks for treatment to be effective. Invisalign is created using advanced 3-D imaging with the help of a computer scanner. With the help of this 3-D imaging and a simulation program we are able to better predict the course of a patient’s treatment as well as provide you with a orthodontic treatment option that requires less inpatient visits and adjustment.
What are the main benefits of Invisalign?
One of the best possible benefits of Invisalign is that it is virtually invisible. It’s very difficult to spot somebody that’s wearing Invisalign and because of this all the stigmas that people associate with orthodontic treatment can virtually fade away. There are virtually no restrictions with Invisalign because the aligners are removable meaning that patients can still enjoy all of the foods that they regularly would eat. In short, the main benefits for Invisalign is that your life doesn’t have to change for you to start straightening your smile.
