Benefits of Invisalign®
Invisalign® offers our patients an array of functional and cosmetic benefits.
Invisalign® aligners are fabricated using clear acrylic and are custom-made for each step of your treatment. The aligners are barely noticeable, as they are completely transparent.
ComfortTraditional braces require the use of metal brackets, wires, and rubber bands, which may be uncomfortable or even painful. Patients who opt for traditional orthodontic treatment often experience mouth sores from brackets or wires rubbing against their gums or cheeks. Patients who choose Invisalign® experience significantly less discomfort.
ConvenienceInvisalign® is far more convenient than traditional orthodontics, as patients can quickly remove their aligners for photos, special occasions, when eating, or to brush and floss their teeth. While traditional orthodontics require frequent office visits for adjustments, with Invisalign® you will only need to visit our office every six weeks for a quick checkup and to receive your next set of aligners.
If you are seeking a discreet and convenient alternative to traditional orthodontics, Invisalign® is likely an excellent option for you.
Additionally, there are many foods that patients with traditional braces are advised to avoid: popcorn, beef jerky, caramel, corn on the cob, and more. With Invisalign®, you can remove your aligners any time you eat, so your food choices are unlimited. Thoroughly cleaning the teeth by brushing and flossing, even after eating sticky or chewy foods, is also much easier.
For most patients, Invisalign® works in just nine to 18 months, compared to the typical two or more years required for most traditional orthodontics.
