Invisalign clear aligners can help straighten your smile just like traditional metal braces, but that's where the similarities end! Here's a little from our orthodontists on what you won't get when you choose Invisalign to straighten your teeth.
With traditional metal braces your teeth are straightened using metal brackets and wires. When you choose Invisalign, your teeth are gradually shifted into place using a series of removable, clear plastic aligners. Either of these orthodontic treatments will help to straighten your smile, but there are many things you WON'T get with Invisalign!
You won't have to get adjustments.
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners are made to custom fit your teeth and mouth, so they don't require frequent adjustments the way traditional braces do. Throughout your Invisalign treatment, all you need to do is visit your dentist every 4 - 6 weeks for brief progress monitoring appointments.
You won't have to change your diet.
Invisalign's removable aligners mean that you won't have to give up any of the foods you love! You just remove your Invisalign clear aligners when it's time to eat and drink. Invisalign's clear custom aligners look much like custom whitening trays, and are super easy to put in and take out whenever you need to.
You won't have to change your lifestyle.
Staying active in business, sports, music, and more is easy with Invisalign. Invisalign fits comfortably into the busy day-to-day lives of teens and adults who want to straighten their smile.
You won't feel self conscious.
Invisalign's aligners are made of a very thin clear plastic and are custom made to fit discreetly over your teeth. Which means, most of the time, other people won't even notice you're undergoing orthodontic treatment. Not only that, because the aligners are removable, you can take them out for those moments when you don't want anyone to know you're straightening your teeth.
