Invisalign uses a series of invisible aligners to move your teeth into place gradually. Since Invisalign is practically invisible, it’s harder for others to notice that you’re undergoing treatment. Invisalign can be a great choice for a variety of patients. The best way to find out if this treatment option is right for you is by scheduling a consultation at our Columbus, OH office.
This treatment offers many benefits, such as:
Invisalign aligners are clear and nearly invisible. While most people will notice that you are having orthodontic treatment, Invisalign aligners are so discreet that most people won’t notice at all. Invisalign aligners are also removable, allowing you to take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
The aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear. Your aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth. This allows you to wear them without irritation. The aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat and drink.
Invisalign treatment doesn’t require you to change your eating habits. You can eat the foods you love, with the exception of gum, while undergoing treatment. You should also brush your teeth after each meal and snack in order to avoid staining.
Keep in mind that you still need to make regular dental appointments. Therefore, you should continue to brush and floss after each meal and snack.
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign is removable. That means you can brush and floss your teeth normally.
Another benefit of Invisalign is that it straightens your teeth without painful brackets and wires. You wear your aligners for 22 to 24 hours a day, only taking them out to eat, brush, and floss.
Unlike traditional braces, which can take years to accomplish results, the Invisalign system uses clear aligner trays to reposition your teeth in as little as a year. The trays gradually shift your teeth into place and are completely removable, so you don’t have to worry about the restrictions that come with braces.
Invisalign addresses the needs of the vast majority of orthodontic patients. The Invisalign system can correct a wide variety of common orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite, underbite, open bite, and improper jaw alignment. More than 3,000,000 patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign.
