Many of us hear the word “orthodontics” and immediately think of having a mouthful of metal. Whether you had braces as a teenager or have always wished for straight teeth, you will be happy to learn that new technology makes it possible to use clear removable aligners instead of traditional metal braces. Invisalign offers nearly invisible polyurethane aligners that you wear almost all the time but can be removed when you’re eating and brushing (and for significant social occasions).
Here are some of the reasons why Invisalign is the orthodontic treatment of choice for many adults:
- It’s discreet. Your orthodontic treatment is your business. With Invisalign, most people won’t notice you are wearing the aligners.
- It’s more comfortable. Unlike traditional metal braces that can cause sore spots in your mouth, Invisalign is made from a flexible plastic material that isn’t irritating.
- It lets you eat normally. Remember all those foods that kids with braces had to avoid? Invisalign allows you to enjoy your normal diet because you remove the aligners before eating.
- It helps prevent teeth grinding. As a bonus, the clear aligners act as nightguards that help protect your teeth from wear.
