A variety of orthodontic treatment options are available to straighten crooked teeth and misaligned jaws. Amongst these, Invisalign has become an increasingly popular choice due to the level of comfort, convenience and confidence it offers during the treatment.
Invisalign is a series of aligners that are custom-made to help straighten your teeth. These aligner trays are made of comfortable, smooth, virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth at least 20-22 hours per day. They gently move your teeth into place with no visible wires or brackets.
The benefits of having straight teeth go beyond having a beautiful smile. Crooked and misaligned teeth can make teeth cleaning difficult which can result in plaque buildup, tooth decay and gum disease. When teeth are properly aligned, it also helps to keep the gums more securely around the teeth, providing a strong defense against potential periodontal problems.
Wearing metal braces has been the traditional way to align teeth properly; however, they are very noticeable, relatively uncomfortable and can be painful to wear. Invisalign clear aligners have proven to be a great alternative. These custom trays are created by taking 3D impressions of your teeth and preparing a custom treatment plan which also showcases before/after results for you to be able to visualize your future smile. Invisalign can comfortably move your teeth into their proper position without wires and brackets. Being removable, they make oral hygiene easier and allow you to eat and drink the foods you like without any restrictions.
