Invisalign: invisible braces that are customized, comfortable and removable.
You’re interested in getting orthodontic braces but are worried about your appearance. What if you could get invisible braces, instead?
Effective clear braces may sound too good to be true, but more than 500,000 people, worldwide, have chosen Invisalign, a type of teeth aligners that can fix your smile in as little as 6 to 12 months.
What are the benefits of using Invisalign?
With Invisalign aligners, your appearance doesn’t change as it would with traditional braces. This product is also:
- Customized to precisely fit your mouth
- Removable, when you eat or floss - or go out on a special occasion; this feature reduces the risk of tooth staining or decay that can occur with traditional braces
Every two weeks, your dental care professional will adjust a set of aligners to gradually put your teeth in their proper alignment. Although a great feature of invisible braces is that you can remove them, when necessary, if you fail to wear your retainer for a period of time, your teeth may not realign as quickly as you’d like.
Here are just some of the conditions that your dental care team can fix using Invisalign:
- Crowded teeth; crowded teeth can cause tooth decay and gum disease due to higher degree of difficulty in home care
- Gaps in teeth
- Misaligned bite between upper and lower teeth
- Overbite or underbite
