Why Should You Consider Invisalign® Instead of Metal Braces?

About Invisalign

When worn, Invisalign treatment consists of a collection of transparent custom aligners that are nearly invisible. Invisalign is a clear aligner that allows you to straighten your teeth without the hassle of metal braces. It is simple to use and easy to wear.

Your orthodontist will develop a unique care plan for you right away. Your care schedule will outline your orthodontic treatment from beginning to end, ensuring that you stay on track at all times.

It’s easy to straighten your teeth with Invisalign! Simply wear each set of aligners for two weeks (or as directed by your orthodontist), then move to the next set in your sequence until your teeth have straightened out.

Braces vs. Invisalign
When you compare Invisalign transparent custom aligners to conventional metal braces’ brackets and wires, you’ll notice that Invisalign has many advantages:

  • Invisalign Aligners Come in a Variety of Stages – Invisalign aligners are created to accommodate the orthodontic treatment needs of patients at various stages of dental development. Invisalign, Invisalign for Teens, and Invisalign First for children are all designed to meet the individual needs of their respective age groups.
  • Invisalign Aligners are Almost Invisible – Invisalign aligners are made of a thin, translucent plastic that is custom-made to suit your distinctive smile. Invisalign’s clear plastic aligners are hardly visible to anyone when worn, making it the most discreet way to straighten the teeth for patients who are nervous about the appearance of conventional metal braces.
  • Invisalign Aligners are Removable – Worried about having to give up your favourite snacks, such as popcorn, on movie night? With Invisalign, you won’t have to. Invisalign aligners are removable. Simply take your aligners out of your mouth and store them in their convenient jar as you feed, then brush and floss your teeth, rinse your aligners under water and put them back on. Unlike conventional metal braces, Invisalign does not require you to change your diet in order to straighten your teeth.
  • Invisalign is Convenient – When you straighten your teeth with braces, you’ll have to go to frequent adjustments, but there are none with Invisalign! Invisalign’s clear aligners don’t require adjustments. You’ll just need to see the orthodontist every six weeks for brief checkups and progress reports.
