Up until not long ago, if you wore braces there was no avoiding the fact your teeth had instantly become the most noticeable feature on your face, and not in a good way. These days, Invisalign braces make it possible for you to have your teeth straightened and properly aligned with all the same reliability as fixed braces, but without the unsightliness or dental hygiene challenges that come along with them. Invisalign clear aligners are able to achieve the same results as fixed braces through a specific process.
To begin, your orthodontist will use 3-D computer imaging to analyze a number of specifics that are unique to your set of teeth. Invisalign clear aligners are the name given to a series of custom-made aligners that are made from the images and applied to your teeth, typically with the orthodontist’s instruction to wear them for 2 weeks before returning to the office for application of the next set.

Invisalign® Treatment: The Clear Choice For You
Each set of Invisalign braces are made of clear, strong medical grade plastic and – as you’d expect given their name – they’re nearly completely invisible on your teeth. For a great many people, that fact alone makes them preferable to fixed braces. Another important point to consider when weighing Invisalign clear aligners versus fixed braces is the fact that patients with Invisalign clear aligners avoid the nuisance of having food particles lodged in the metal of fixed braces. Invisalign braces are much more hygienic overall, you’ll love not having to brush around clumsy metal brackets. A large part of why that’s possible is because Invisalign aligners are removable. That’s right, these braces aren’t affixed to your teeth in the way conventional braces would be.
If you feel you’ll get a better brushing by removing your braces, you’re perfectly free to do so!
