Invisalign is a way to straighten teeth without using metal brackets and wires. Instead, Invisalign uses clear plastic trays that change every few weeks as your teeth move into new positions. The best part about Invisalign is that it can be removed at any time if there’s a need to go without the trays or for special occasions.
The difference between Invisalign and typical braces is that you can eat whatever you want without getting food stuck in your teeth. With traditional metal braces, it’s difficult for most people to chew on the inside of their mouth because the brackets make it very hard for them to open wide enough.
Also, traditional braces are more permanent while installed, whereas, as we said, Invisalign uses removable trays that you can take out if necessary. This makes the entire process much more comfortable and adjustable to your unique situation.
Invisalign isn’t a good option if you have gaps or misaligned bites that need correction with dental implants or other appliances like bridges or partials. However, if you have mild crowding but no major issues, we recommend looking into our Invisalign service to see if that is a good fit for correcting your teeth.
Invisalign isn’t just for children either; Invisalign can correct misaligned teeth for people of any age. The multi-stage process is also easier and sometimes faster than metal braces while being able to be changed easily if the situation in the mouth of the patient changes.
