Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional metal braces due to its many benefits. Invisalign can't correct every orthodontic issue, so talk to your dentist about what orthodontic treatment will be right for you. Read about the benefits of Invisalign and come see us in White Bear Lake, MN, if you want to start Invisalign treatment.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear plastic aligners that you wear in succession to shift your teeth. You wear each precisely measured aligner for approximately two weeks for 22 hours a day before progressing to the next.
The most obvious benefit to Invisalign treatment is that your teeth shift without the metallic look of traditional braces. The clear aligners are nearly invisible so your natural smile shines through.
Invisalign is removable
Traditional braces come with restrictions on hard and sticky foods that can damage the brackets and wires. Invisalign trays are removable, so you don't have to adjust any eating habits. You also remove Invisalign to brush and floss with ease. With traditional braces, flossing can take a long time to maneuver around the wires. Removing Invisalign trays makes brushing and flossing easy to do!
Invisalign is comfortable
Wearing Invisalign may take some getting used to, but patients find it much more comfortable than traditional metal braces. Without brackets and wires, you don't have metal uncomfortably rubbing at the inside of your mouth. Most White Bear Lake, MN, patients are comfortable wearing them all day after a short adjustment period.
Another perk to Invisalign is that it typically works faster than traditional braces. An average treatment plan with Invisalign lasts 9 to 15 months. In less time than it takes traditional braces, you could have the smile you've always wanted!
