Invisalign has many advantages over traditional braces. While the “clear” nature of the braces is often their most popular selling point, it’s the ability to take the Invisalign braces off that you are likely to notice and appreciate the most during your treatment.

You will have many opportunities to take off your Invisalign braces throughout the course of your treatment. You can:

  • Take them off when you eat food.
  • Take them off when you brush your teeth/floss, and clean your aligners.
  • Take them off when short public speaking.

That flexibility makes Invisalign aligners much more convenient for those that do not want to be stuck with their braces 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Invisalign is unique compared to other types of braces. While most braces are provided by a trained and experienced orthodontist, Invisalign braces can be provided by both general and cosmetic dentists. Due to the nature of the treatment and the use of computer imagery, many general dentists fit patients for Invisalign as part of their standard practice.

There are many excellent dentists that work with Invisalign, and have successfully fitted hundreds of patients with this clear braces system. But it is still highly recommended that you consider working with an orthodontist, rather than a general dentist, when electing to go with an Invisalign treatment.

Braces work by slowly and carefully shifting teeth over to a new desirable location in your mouth. The process can take more than a year because your teeth are some of the most powerful bones on your body, and designed to be resistant to movement.

Time will pass. Whether it’s in 2 months or 2 years, your teeth will be in a more desirable location, and you’ll be prouder of your smile once again.

No one wants to live with crooked teeth. But one of the primary reasons that we need braces to fix them is because teeth move very slowly. The roots of teeth are incredibly strong, and most teeth are planted firmly in the gum and unable to be moved quickly without causing damage.

This is why so many people choose Invisalign braces instead of metal braces. Invisalign is more discreet, which means less time spent with large, distracting braces while your teeth move to their new location. But Invisalign is also a long term commitment, which is why so many people wonder when they can start seeing the results of that treatment in their smile.

Invisalign is considered the best alternative to traditional metal braces. One of the primary advantages of Invisalign braces is that they can be removed when you eat. This means that there are far fewer food restrictions, and no chance for food to get stuck in your braces provided that you take proper precautions.

But what about drinking? Do you have to take your braces out every time you drink as well, and are there any beverages that you cannot have while using Invisalign?
