Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks. At N STREET DENTAL, the aligners are custom contoured to your mouth to ensure the best comfort and fit possible. As you progress through each phase of treatment, you may notice changes occurring. Particular teeth may move slightly faster than others, and you may experience slight discomfort as your teeth adjust.
Invisalign Vs. Braces
If you’ve worn braces, you probably remember avoiding certain foods that could damage your brackets or wires. This made life difficult if you had an affinity for popcorn and caramel candy. However, when you undergo treatment with Invisalign clear aligners, you can continue enjoying your favorite foods without worrying about damaging your orthodontic appliances.
One of the most significant benefits of using Invisalign over traditional metal braces is that you don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in your brackets and wires. This means you don’t have to stop snacking on popcorn at the movies or avoiding that gooey piece of cake at your friend’s birthday dinner. With Invisalign, you can continue enjoying all your favorite foods without risking breaking your appliances.
Another advantage of Invisalign is that you remove your aligners each time you eat. This means you won’t have to brush and floss between brackets like braces, saving time and effort.
The Advantages of Invisalign
The aligners are removable, so you can take them out to brush and floss your teeth normally. You wear them for about two weeks before switching to the next set of aligners in the series. Each aligner is individually manufactured with computerized precision, then worn for two weeks and switched out for the next set in the series. Over time, they gradually shift teeth into place. Since they are clear and barely noticeable, most people won’t even realize you are wearing them. In addition to being invisible, they are also more comfortable than traditional braces. Instead of metal brackets and wires that can irritate the soft tissue in the mouth, Invisalign uses soft plastic that is much more comfortable to wear. Plus, you can eat and drink whatever you want while in treatment because there are no restrictions or food restrictions to worry about! This makes it easy to maintain good oral hygiene and get regular checkups while wearing your Invisalign aligners.
