At Riverside Tooth Co, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that are custom-made to fit your teeth. Each aligner moves teeth gradually into the desired position, and the entire process can take between six and eighteen months. The aligners are removable, so you can continue eating your favorite foods and avoid the inconvenience of metal braces.
One of the most important things to consider that may impact your decision is the appearance of your smile during treatment. Although traditional braces are the most effective treatment method, they can cause discomfort and embarrassment for patients. Invisalign clear aligners are invisible, so most people won’t notice you’re wearing them. You can smile confidently throughout your treatment because those around you will be none the wiser. You can also remove your aligners when you eat, drink, or brush your teeth, so you don’t feel discomfort from the metal brackets or wires.
In general, anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their smile is a candidate for Invisalign treatment. There are no age restrictions or required health requirements. Invisalign is also popular among working adults and teens because Invisalign aligners are removable. You can eat and drink whatever you want during treatment, and aligner trays do not impede brushing and flossing. Additionally, there are no metal brackets to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
Because Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible when worn, they are a popular option for adults who don’t want the look of traditional braces at work or when socializing with friends and family. The clear plastic of Invisalign aligners makes them less noticeable than other orthodontics, such as metal braces that use wire attachments.
First, no one will know it’s there except you and your dentist. As a result, you can keep your orthodontic work private. But more than that, the aligners are removable! You can take them out to eat, brush and floss and put them back in after you’ve finished your orthodontic treatment. Since they are clear, you can also easily avoid common foods and drinks that can cause staining.
Another benefit to using Invisalign is that the aligners are more comfortable than braces. There are no wires or brackets to irritate, so you can pop in a new set of aligners every two weeks until your treatment is complete.
On top of all of these great benefits, you’ll spend less time at our offices than with braces. You’ll only need to visit once every six weeks so that we can check your progress and give you your new sets of aligners.
