What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a revolutionary dental technology that can achieve straight teeth without metal braces. Made of SmartTrack®, BPA free material, Invisalign aligners work to gently ease your teeth into position over a few short months instead of one to two years as is the case with traditional metal braces.
Below are some advantages that have made Invisalign a sought-after treatment.
Removable & Custom Made
Unlike conventional braces, you can remove Invisalign aligners when you eat, for special occasions and even for pictures. Just make sure to reinsert them as treatment can take longer if they are constantly being removed. When you're wearing the aligners, they are clear, making them far less noticeable than metal braces. They're made of a clear material that easily blends in with your natural teeth, making them an ideal choice for those who want a low-profile treatment. Our dentist at Family Dentistry of Arnold will guide you through the process of creating your custom-made aligners, which guarantee greater comfort than metal braces.
Care & Treatment Time
Invisalign aligners require maintenance just like other braces do. Whenever you take off the aligners, make sure you brush them properly under warm water before putting them on again to remove any bacteria. Treatment time varies from patient to patient depending on the severity of their misalignment and how long the aligners are worn each day. For optimal results, our dentist recommends wearing your aligners at least 20 to 22 hours per day, only removing them to eat and brush your teeth.
