Invisalign braces are the perfect solution for those who do not want to be embarrassed by the sight of traditional metal braces. The reason is because Invisalign braces are clear, and therefore will not show nearly as easily as metal braces. It’s implied in the name itself, “invisible align” or Invisalign for short.

Straighten Teeth with Invisalign Invisible Braces

The process begins with a set of clear braces that are made with high-end 3D computer imaging technology and placed into your mouth. Each set of Invisalign braces is worn for about two weeks before a new set is placed. Each set is different from the last, with a tighter set each time. This process ensures that your teeth will slowly move into position each week you receive a new set. Throughout the course of orthodontic treatment, you will have received anywhere from 18-30 new sets, depending on how quickly your teeth respond to the treatment. The whole process averages around 9-15 months of time.

Benefits of Invisalign Braces

Invisalign braces offer great benefits that other types of braces simply cannot offer such as the ability to be removed from your mouth. Because there are no wires involved or brackets that have been place onto the enamel of each tooth, you are freely able to remove your braces, perfect for eating and drinking without hassle. Also, with Invisalign braces you do not have to change your daily brushing and flossing routine. Traditional braces require special tools and techniques in order to maintain proper dental hygiene each day, but this isn’t the case with Invisalign.

The end goal of any set of braces is to achieve one thing: straighter teeth. Invisalign braces have been proven to be effective in obtaining this goal. For adults who want to keep the natural look of their teeth without the extra hassle of traditional braces, then Invisalign is the best orthodontic solution.
