What are the benefits of Invisalign treatment?
If you are unhappy with mild to moderate tooth crowding or misalignment, you may not need or want extensive orthodontic treatment. You are in luck because today you are not limited to bulky metal braces to get the look you desire; Invisalign clear braces make your treatment easy, comfortable, and efficient.
Instead of metal brackets and wires that guide your teeth, Invisalign works with clear plastic aligners that gently guide your teeth into proper position. The aligners are virtually invisible and, unlike metal brackets and wires, won’t poke into your cheeks and cause tenderness and irritation.
Another benefit of using Invisalign is that you can remove the trays as needed to eat or brush and floss. Just remember that you need to wear the aligners at least 22 hours per day, and the longer you wear them, the sooner you will be finished with treatment!
Perhaps the most significant benefit is that treatment can usually be completed in about a year for adults. Treatment times for teens with mild to moderate alignment issues are similar to those with traditional orthodontics.
