Invisalign: An Innovative Solution
Facts About Invisalign
The clear and smooth material of the aligners makes Invisalign far more comfortable than conventional braces. With no metal rubbing against your inner cheeks or lips, there's never any discomfort during treatment.
Conventional metal braces have a lot of drawbacks. They're cemented to the teeth and are vulnerable to breakage and other problems from eating certain foods. This results in often frustrating dietary restrictions for the duration of treatment. Additionally, the wires and brackets make them incredibly difficult to properly clean, particularly with floss. The Invisalign aligners, however, are completely removable. That means there are no dietary restrictions and caring for your teeth is as easy as it was before you started treatment.
Your Invisalign treatment is personalized to your unique needs. You'll receive a set of custom-made aligners for maximum comfort and optimal results.
Duration of Treatment
Treatment times vary considerably from patient to patient, but most treatments are completed in 12 months or less. That's considerably shorter than treatment durations with conventional braces. After meeting with our dentist, you'll have a better idea of just how long your treatment will take.
Plastic materials bring up concerns about BPA. Fortunately, Invisalign aligners are made of BPA-free materials so they're completely safe for patients of all ages.
