Malocclusion, or tooth misalignment, can occur in patients of all ages and to varying degrees of severity. In some cases, severely crooked teeth need the comprehensive orthodontic correction that can only be achieved with bracket-and-wire braces. For many other patients, however, straightening crooked teeth can be much simpler and more convenient than wearing metal braces. In fact, with Invisalign® clear aligners, undergoing orthodontic treatment isn’t like what most patients expect, considering the fact that they don’t involve brackets, wires, or the special considerations that often come with wearing braces.
Like there’s nothing on your teeth
Invisalign® is a system of clear aligners that are made to remain virtually invisible when placed over your teeth. This gives the aligners the ability to blend in discreetly with your smile and remain unnoticed, even upon close inspection. Each aligner is also crafted according to highly precise measurements of your teeth to ensure an optimal fit that doesn’t leave room for the aligners to shift.
Like you don’t have to accommodate braces
With brackets bonded to your teeth and arch wires threaded between them, wearing braces often means accommodating their presence. For instance, cleaning your teeth requires additional hygiene tools, and meals can only consist of foods that don’t stick in your braces. With Invisalign®, however, you can temporarily remove your aligners so you can eat and clean your teeth without having to take special precautions. This also means you can more effectively keep oral bacteria at bay and reduce your risks of experiencing tooth decay and gum disease.
