Choices, we are faced with them everyday. Regular or unleaded, diet or regular, decaffeinated or caffeine. When it comes to gas, coffee, or soda it's easy to make a decision. In the morning you may need the caffeine, you're watching your weight so you choose diet, and your car requires a specific type of gas. When it comes to orthodontics, the decision may not be so easy to make. There are myriad choices and as a patient, the information may be difficult to navigate. Let me help you to make your decision easier by giving you information about the benefits of Invisalign over traditional bracketed braces.
Invisalign is a custom prepared series of aligner trays that are comfortable, easy to wear, and virtually undetectable to those around you. The aligners gradually, and carefully move your teeth into an ideal position for your mouth. Because they are removable, caring for your teeth and gums is easy, virtually omitting the risk of gum disease and inflammation typically associated with traditional braces. There are no wires, elastics, or rubber bands to impede your ability to keep your teeth clean and healthy. There is just a smooth, clear, removable mouth piece. You change your aligners every 2 weeks until your perfect smile is achieved!
Like traditional braces, Invisalign can treat a wide variety of cases including; crowding, spacing, overbite, and under bite. Unlike traditional metal bracketed braces there are no limits to what you can eat. You can brush and floss your teeth as often as necessary to maintain optimal oral health and no one will know you are wearing braces!
