Invisalign Therapy Is More Convenient & Comfortable Than Braces

When the Invisalign system was approved for use in the late 1990s, orthodontic patients cheered, as they had wanted an alternative to clunky traditional braces. Rather than metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear teeth aligners crafted from smooth plastic. The aligners slip comfortably over your teeth to gently move them into their correct positions. The aligners are easy to get used to, and most patients report no problems with them.

You’ll love how discreet the aligners are. Once they’re in place over your teeth, other people will barely notice them, if at all. Unless you point them out, the aligners can be your little secret. Others will only notice your teeth getting straighter and straighter by the week.

Invisalign treatment is far more convenient than braces:

  • You’ll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving to the next set in the series.
  • For your convenience, you’ll receive several sets of aligners at each of your progress checks, which occur about every six weeks.
  • Feel free to remove the aligners at any time for eating, brushing, or special occasions. Just be sure to wear them for at least 20-22 hours a day to maximize your treatment time.
  • When you reach the last set of aligners, you’ll have your brand-new smile. For many patients, this can happen in as few as 12 months.
