Crooked and crowded teeth are very common. Traditionally, treatment to straighten your teeth has been metal braces that are hard to care for and sometimes painful. However, there is a new and popular option for those who are seeking an alternative to traditional braces. It’s called Invisalign, and it can successfully straighten your teeth and improve your smile, all without the drawbacks of traditional metal braces.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an almost invisible tooth straightening option that uses clear aligners to slowly move your teeth into a more aesthetically pleasing straight position. Rather than use thick and uncomfortable metal brackets, Invisalign uses clear, custom built trays that fit gently over your teeth and are almost impossible to see with the naked eye.
Invisalign is also removable. Every one to two weeks, you will upgrade to the next aligner in the system, gradually straightening your teeth without the struggles that can accompany metal braces.
Benefits of Invisalign in Irvine
The primary benefit of Invisalign is its clear polyurethane material. For those struggling with their smile, metal braces can often make the problem worse, causing self-consciousness and discomfort that causes people to hide their smile even more. Invisalign is clear, so no one has to know you are straightening your teeth unless you want to tell them.
These aligners are also removable, and should be removed while eating, drinking, brushing, or flossing. This means that you will not have to undergo serious food restrictions while your teeth are straightened. It also allows for complete access to your teeth so that you can maintain your oral hygiene routine, something that is difficult to accomplish while wearing metal braces.
The smooth and contoured clear plastic of Invisalign aligners also has little risk of cuts and bruises (compared to metal braces), require fewer adjustments, and are less likely to cause staining or tooth decay when properly cared for. In the end, you’ll be left with a straighter, more attractive smile and fewer of the drawbacks associated with other treatment methods.
