Ask both women and men about their favorite facial feature on a person, and they will usually say it’s a great smile that makes someone attractive. Straight, white teeth dazzle every time and never go out of style. Many of us, however, don’t have the ideal alignment. Our teeth may be crooked, gapped, or our bite may be off. We want to correct the issue, but we may not wish to advertise a mouth full of metal and any discomfort that might go with it. The Invisalign system offers multiple advantages for creating a super smile with straight teeth. Nothing could be easier.
Comfort and Convenience
Invisalign is the cool alternative to traditional braces with metal brackets and wires. The system consists of removable aligners that are made of clear, medical-grade polyurethane resin. That’s right; these devices are virtually invisible, and that’s why your favorite celebrities wear them to straighten their teeth in the most discreet way. You can barely notice the aligners even up close on camera.
Fans of the system enjoy wearing Invisalign aligners because they feature smooth edges and are quite comfortable. In addition, you remove them to eat food and drink and to brush and floss. Traditional braces are fixed and not removable, and food can get trapped within the wires and brackets. That issue can cause problems with possible tooth decay or gum inflammation.
Invisalign also fits your teeth exactly during the straightening process, and each pair are designed to move your teeth as needed in the slightest, most precise way.
Invisalign was developed to straighten teeth and improve your smile sooner than later. With traditional braces, the process is a lot slower and can take up to two years for the straightening treatment time to finish. The dental wire has to be tightened at regular intervals to slowly move teeth into their proper positions.
The clear aligners of Invisalign perform their magic by delivering a straight smile in only one year to a year and a half. The computerized system shows the orthodontist exactly what to expect with the patient. The 3-D digital scanning can even determine how long the patient will need to wear the aligners before they see results.
