Invisalign: A Clear and Comfortable Alternative to Traditional Braces
Invisalign is a system that provides clear, comfortable, and nearly invisible correction to teeth that have problems with size, shape, position or spacing. It's a great alternative for those who don't want to go through the inconvenience of traditional braces. The system uses a series of aligners made from smooth plastic which are worn over the front teeth at night and removed during the day. Over time, these aligners gently move your teeth into their desired positions until you achieve your perfect smile!
Invisalign is an FDA-approved way to correct crooked teeth without metal brackets or wires. Invisalign has been clinically proven to be just as effective as traditional metal braces in producing long-term results while being more comfortable for patients because they do not have to deal with the discomfort of brackets and wires.
Although traditional metal braces are still available for people who want that system, many people now opt for Invisalign because they provide a much more comfortable alternative with virtually no problems at all during treatment.
There are some other great benefits of choosing Invisalign vs traditional metal braces. Some include:
- Invisalign is more comfortable than braces. It does not have the problems with brackets and wires poking you, so you do not have to deal with discomfort throughout treatment.
- Invisalign is a much less expensive alternative to traditional metal braces. In most cases, the cost is about 50% or lower of what it would cost if you had traditional metal braces.
- Invisalign uses a series of clear, comfortable and removable aligners that are virtually invisible. You can remove them to eat, brush your teeth or even talk. This is much more convenient than traditional metal braces which you cannot remove at all except when eating.
- The treatment process for Invisalign typically takes about the same length of time as traditional metal braces. This is usually about 12-14 months (although treatment can vary widely depending on the severity of your problems).
