What is Invisalign?
Invisalign are types of invisible clear braces / aligners used to straighten teeth discreetly, without affecting the daily routine of the patient. These are custom made, comfortable, removable and clear aligners which are replaced every 2 weeks till the teeth are in the final projected position.
Life Benefits Of Invisible Braces?
– Straighter teeth are healthier teeth as there are no gaps for plaque to build up over time.
– Having an attractive smile will have a positive effect on your confidence.
– Orthodontics are a long-term investment in your oral health.
– Thanks to fixed permanent retention you can be assured that your teeth won’t move after treatment is completed.
-Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible. No one may be aware that you’re wearing these almost invisible aligners, making Invisalign a very smooth fit with your daily routine and day-to-day interactions with others.
-Invisalign aligners are removable giving you the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. And you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you usually would for fresh breath and to maintain good oral health.
-There are no metal brackets or wires like traditional braces and no ‘train tracks’! This means that in most cases less time is spent in your Invisalign Provider’s practice for any changes needed.
-And finally, Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you even begin treatment so you can see how your teeth are expected to look when your treatment is complete.
