To say Invisalign invisible braces have taken the dental world by storm may be a bit of an understatement. For most of the history of dentistry, the only option for straightening crooked teeth was conventional braces.
Conventional braces did a great job and still do a great job, but they had their drawbacks. They can’t be removed, making it difficult for people to eat sticky foods, including old favourites like peanut butter because they are hard to clean off of teeth with braces. Many people don’t like the appearance of standard braces while many don’t like feeling them against the insides of their cheeks.
If you or your child has crooked teeth and don’t like the thought of braces, you are in luck. Invisalign invisible braces get the same results but without the hassle of standard braces. Invisalign braces are clear and made of plastic. They slip over the teeth but can be removed for eating and brushing.
Treatment with Invisalign invisible braces takes anywhere from nine months to fifteen months. We measure your teeth and have a custom set of Invisalign braces made for your mouth. You start with one and change them out every two weeks. Each set moves your teeth further towards the desired goal.
During treatment, you keep the braces in your mouth at all times except to eat, drink, floss and brush. Invisalign braces aren’t as painful as conventional braces can be. They aren’t nearly as socially painful, either, as they aren’t nearly as obvious as standard braces. Most people won’t even know you are wearing them unless you say something or they are standing really close to you.
Even if someone sees your Invisalign invisible braces, they don’t have an unsightly appearance and you won’t have to fear being stigmatised for wearing them.
