You can obtain the perfect smile you’ve been looking for with Invisalign clear braces. If you’ve been holding back on having your teeth straightened because you can’t stand the thought of having to wear those ugly and uncomfortable metal braces, a great alternative is the Invisalign dental tooth treatment. Because the aligners are clear, they’re nearly invisible and you can remove them at any time.

About Invisalign Clear Braces

These are a series of safe, clear, BPA-free and bio-compatible aligners that straighten your teeth effectively without the need to wear metal brackets or wires. You can easily and quickly remove the aligners when you brush and floss your teeth and eat.

First, your dentist will figure out how they’re going to correct your bite. Then, they’ll go on to come up with a plan for straightening your teeth. You’ll be fitted for various versions, if you decide on the clear aligners, which will make slight adjustments for moving your teeth over your time of treatment.

As you progress through your treatment, your dentist will provide you with a new set of aligners approximately every couple of weeks until you complete your treatment.

The aligners are made from acrylic or clear plastic material that will fit securely over your teeth. Every few weeks, you’ll get a new series of aligners to continue the straightening process of your teeth into the proper position.

Your treatment time with Invisalign will depend on how much your teeth have to be rotated or moved. The more crooked your teeth are or bite is off, the longer your treatment time will take. Typically, treatment will take between 10 and 24 months. However, if you had braces as a child and you’re only experiencing a slight shift in your teeth over the years, you might require Invisalign for no more than 10 weeks.

Invisalign Aligners Benefits

There are many benefits to Invisalign dentistry treatment. First, Invisalign makes teeth cleaning during orthodontic treatment simpler. You just take your aligner out when you want to eat without interference and you can brush and floss like normal since there are no metal wires. Invisalign fits better than other aligners. It’s more advanced with greater control and predictability. And, because they’re nearly transparent, while your teeth are becoming straighter, your appearance stays unchanged.
