Why Invisalign® is Rising Through the Ranks of Orthodontics

Posted .

Are you interested in receiving an orthodontic treatment that offers the benefits of braces but is very discreet when placed on your teeth to improve their alignment? Many patients are interested in the prospect of straighter teeth, but don’t like the idea of wearing bulky and highly visible metal braces for several months. Fortunately, modern orthodontics have improved the look of braces and orthodontic aligners to the point that patients can now receive nearly invisible appliances. We invite you to learn more about Invisalign® clear aligners, which are a convenient orthodontic system that is gaining popularity.

Invisalign aligners are plastic trays that are virtually invisible against the teeth so that even your friends and family may not realize you are wearing anything over your smile. Many patients are choosing Invisalign because it offers a very simple process to enhance smile alignment without subjecting the wearer to a “metal mouth” appearance and social stigmas that come with braces. Patients who are hesitant to receive orthodontic treatment often find that Invisalign aligners are highly efficient in adjusting tooth alignment to achieve straight and healthy teeth with minimal hassle.

The clear aligners provided with Invisalign offer the traditional benefits of orthodontics previously associated only with braces, and even offer additional benefits that can’t be achieved with metal brackets and wires. The aligner technology is easily removed from your mouth for meals and cleanings, eliminating common food restrictions that come with braces, which means all of your favorite foods can remain in your diet during treatment. Following meals and tooth cleanings, simply snap appliances back on your teeth.
