If you’ve never needed orthodontic treatment, then you might be surprised to learn that you do now because your permanent teeth have become crooked. Fortunately, you may still be able to keep your streak of avoiding braces with the help of Invisalign® aligners. Instead of brackets and wires, which traditional orthodontics rely on to straighten your teeth, Invisalign® is a series of aligners designed to gradually guide teeth toward straighter positions. Many adult and older teen patients can benefit greatly from Invisalign® by keeping their orthodontic treatment more comfortable and discreet than they may have expected.
Undetectable Orthodontic Treatment
Nothing is truly invisible, but Invisalign® aligners are as close as it gets. Made from clear, comfortable acrylic, each aligner is custom-designed using digital and 3D imaging technology for an optimal fit. The aligners never shift, and their virtually invisible appearance ensures that they remain discreet every time you speak, smile, and laugh. You can even temporarily remove your aligners for close-up photos or other occasions when you want to ensure optimal discretion.
The Other Benefits of Invisalign®
The ability to remove your aligners when necessary offers more than just cosmetic benefits. For instance, rather than needing interdental cleaners to clean between your braces when you brush and floss, you can simply remove your aligners beforehand. You can clean your teeth as easily before without reinvent your hygiene routine every day. Besides saving time, this also means you have a lower risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease, which develop from inadequate hygiene and excessive oral bacteria.
