Remember the mean nicknames that often got attached to the poor souls back in middle school who were saddled with a conventional orthodontic treatment?
Well, no one will ever tag you as a metal mouth while using Invisalign. That’s because this system of “clear braces” achieves the desired results without having to place any metal in your mouth whatsoever!
Instead of utilizing metal brackets and wires, Invisalign works through a series of clear, plastic aligners (that are based on molds of your mouth) to direct the movements of your teeth.
Since they are made of smooth plastic, Invisalign aligners are pretty much invisible, which means your treatment will be discreet and won’t ever be noticed by your colleagues. Truth be told, the aligners feel more like mouthguards than braces, which makes for a very pleasant treatment experience. There won’t be any bleeding or mouth sores in your future!
The Invisalign system allows us to map out your entire treatment well in advance and then design your aligner trays for each crucial period of realignment. Once you have your gear in-hand, you will switch them out yourself every two weeks to keep things moving in the right direction. That is way better than the old-fashioned approach of fine-tuning the equipment each month in our office.
And don’t forget: conventional braces would be dropped into place and left in your mouth for 2-3 years without any respite. You would have to carry around special tools for cleaning all the food that would inevitable get trapped in your hardware. You’d probably even have to forego the foods you love with a traditional orthodontic treatment.
But you can rejoice in the fact that Invisalign aligners are engineered to be removable! This means that you can take them out as you see fit, so you won’t have to change your eating habits. No food will get stuck in your gear! Plus, for cleaning, you just pop them out and rinse them under warm water instead of carrying around special brushes and tools. Otherwise, you just brush and floss your teeth as usual.
In the end, you will find that Invisalign is a very effective method and it won’t drag on indefinitely. In fact, it can usually be completed in about 12 months, depending on the extent of your problems.
It doesn’t get much easier to get a better smile! So what do you think? Ready to take a chance?
