Facts about Invisalign
Want to know more about Invisalign? We’ve put together some important facts for you below.
Treatment time will vary for each person. Orthodontic treatment is based on your specific needs, so there is no one size fits all treatment. Your dentist will be able to give you an expected timeframe, but this can be affected by many factors.
Invisalign aligners are custom made to only fit you. Your dentist will explain the process of creating the aligners and answer any questions you have before and during your treatment.
Nearly Invisible Materials
Many people avoid orthodontic treatment because they do not want the look of traditional metal braces. They may feel self conscious about their appearance with the metal brackets, but with Invisalign, that is not a concern because they are almost invisible. The material they are made from is clear and blends effortlessly with your teeth so they do not stand out like metal braces.
Invisalign Braces Are Easily Removable
Unlike traditional braces which are placed by the dentist and can not be removed without their help, Invisalign is designed to be removed by the patient as needed. This makes eating as well as oral hygiene much easier for the patient.
Since Invisalign can be removed, they are much easier to clean and take care of than metal braces. Removing them as needed, they can be brushed and placed in lukewarm water to remove bacteria.
More Comfortable Feel
Invisalign is made of smooth materials which makes them far more comfortable for the patient. Without the metal brackets continuously rubbing on the inner cheeks and lips or having wires break and poke the cheeks and gums, Invisalign is the clear and comfortable choice for many patients. .
The plastic used to create Invisalign will never release harmful chemicals or toxins into your body. They are formed only with plastic which is BPA-free.
Over 8 million people have used Invisalign aligners and have reported great results with gaining the smile they have always dreamed of. It’s no wonder these aligners are so popular! Invisalign is a proven method for obtaining straight teeth in a convenient and more efficient manner.
It is important for you to understand your options before beginning any treatment, so contact your dentist and see if Invisalign is the right option for you.
