Did you know that an orthodontic treatment exists that provides helpful benefits of braces but with a more cosmetic approach to re-aligning your teeth? While the prospect of straighter teeth is something that appeals to most patients, many people are put off by the thought of bulky metal braces and never seek orthodontic care. However, we want you to know that orthodontic aligners have come a long way to offer nearly invisible appliances. One of the cosmetic orthodontic options you can receive is Invisalign® clear aligners, which are changing the nature of orthodontics.

These clear aligners are plastic trays that blend in with your teeth so that most people may never realize you are even receiving orthodontic treatment. Invisalign has become one of the top choices for orthodontic appliances because its process is very simple and does not involve the social stigma of having a “metal mouth” appearance. Patients who are unenthusiastic about traditional braces often find that Invisalign aligners offer ideal tooth alignment treatment and minimal hassle when improving their smiles.

The Invisalign clear aligners offer many of the same benefits as metal braces, and even go beyond to offer further benefits unassociated with metal brackets and wires. Because the aligner technology can be easily snapped off the teeth when it’s time for meals and cleanings, you don’t need to be concerned about the food restrictions that you may face with braces. Invisalign is friendly to all foods, and after the meal is over and your smile is clean, these aligners are simply snapped back in place.
