InvisalignStop your smile from being more susceptible to decay when you opt for clear braces.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a series of clear, plastic aligners that are custom-made to fit over your upper and lower teeth to slowly move teeth into their proper place. Invisalign aligners are removable, making it easier for people to straighten their smiles without having to change their diet or oral care regime.

What should I expect when I get Invisalign?

Once you are fitted by your dentist in 19102 with the first set of aligners in your treatment series you will wear your aligners for about two weeks, after which you will replace them with the next set. To obtain the most efficient results, you will wear your Invisalign aligners for about 20 to 22 hours out of the day, only removing them to brush, floss, eat or drink.

How can Invisalign save your smile?

When you deal with crooked or overcrowded teeth, this leaves more crevices for bacteria and food particles to live. This is made worse by the fact that these same spots are hard to brush and clean properly, which leaves crooked smiles more likely to develop cavities or gum disease. So, by straightening your smile with Invisalign you make it more difficult for bacteria and food to get trapped between teeth, thereby reducing your chances of developing decay or other dental issues.

What are some other benefits of getting Invisalign?

The most obvious benefit is that you are straightening your smile without anyone noticing your braces. The clear plastic used to create your aligners is transparent and make it impossible to tell that you are even wearing braces.

Furthermore, you don’t have to worry about any dietary restrictions, as you would if you were opting for traditional braces. Enjoy eating all your favorite foods, just remember to take out your aligners first and then rinse them out before putting them back in.
