Have you always longed for a straighter smile? Do you find yourself hiding your teeth around your friends? Traditional orthodontic treatment can be embarrassing and uncomfortable for many patients, but, thankfully, it is not the only way to improve your smile! Invisalign Clear Braces provide many of the same benefits of traditional braces, without many of the downsides, making it a great solution for people who want straighter smiles but have shied away from metal braces.
Will Invisalign fix the gaps between my teeth?
Yes. Invisalign treatment can help correct a number of issues, such as misaligned teeth or malocclusion. That said, a consultation with your dentist is the best way to determine if Invisalign is the right solution for your smile concerns. No two smiles are the same, and some alignment issues may benefit from more traditional orthodontia, while many can be treated with Invisalign.
Does Invisalign take a long time?
No. The timeframe for completing treatment with Invisalign is often similar to that of braces, if not less. One of the greatest benefits to patients, though, is that the series of trays used to realign your teeth can be changed out with less frequent visits to the dentist’s office, than traditional braces. This saves you valuable time throughout the treatment process.
Will the treatment be comfortable?
Yes. Invisalign’s aligner trays are designed to be comfortable for patients. Though it will take some time to adjust to wearing them, you should not feel discomfort. Perhaps best of all, you don’t have to worry about metal brackets popping or scratching your sensitive soft tissues.
You can also take the trays out while eating, helping prevent embarrassment and pains often associated with trying to chew in traditional braces.
