Invisalign braces are a revolutionary type of orthodontic treatment that allows patients to straighten their teeth without any brackets or wires. Instead, Invisalign uses custom-fitted trays that are changed out every 2-3 weeks, which guide a person’s teeth into proper alignment.
Invisalign aligners are:
- Made of smooth, thin plastic
- “Invisible” to other people
- Removable during meals
- Easy to keep clean
- The most comfortable orthodontic treatment available
What are the benefits to orthodontic treatment?
There’s more to orthodontics than just having a good-looking smile. Teeth that have been straightened with Invisalign are easier to keep clean, making them less likely to suffer from cavities or gum disease. Once teeth bite together in a proper relationship, they’re less likely to suffer from premature wear or lead to TMJ disorders.
