Invisalign® Clear Aligners
When teeth are out of alignment, this may or may not be obvious, depending on the severity of the malocclusion. But even in minor cases, the misalignment can affect the balance of your bite, which can expose some teeth to excessive pressure and exhaust your jaw joints and muscles. If your crooked teeth are noticeable, then you may also experience a decline in your self-confidence. Invisalign® clear aligners are a popular cosmetic alternative to traditional braces that can correct your crooked teeth while keeping your treatment comfortable and discreet. Instead of the brackets and wires that traditional braces use, Invisalign® utilizes a series of clear acrylic aligners that remain nearly invisible when in place.
If you want to improve your smile’s appearance by straightening crooked teeth but don’t want to wear orthodontic braces, then ask your dentist if Invisalign® is the right treatment for you.
The Benefits of Invisalign® vs. Braces
Invisalign® aligners are as effective as braces because they follow the same principles of gentle tooth movement. The main benefit, however, is the fact that clear aligners achieve this movement through a series of custom-designed aligners rather than semi-permanent brackets and wires. The aligners fit firmly but comfortably over your teeth, and their clear acrylic makes them virtually undetectable, even in the light of day. Invisalign® aligners are also removable, so you can take them off before brushing and flossing your teeth, or before enjoying a meal.
