Smiling Confidently without Braces or is it

Everybody loves a beautiful smile. Unfortunately some have stayed away from that possibility because if tradition al braces. There is a new way to smile without being afraid of what people will think. Invisalign are the new braces. They are aligners that are transparent and removable.

Your confidence. Your outlook. Your life. And with Invisalign, achieving the smile you always dreamed of doesn’t have to be a big deal. In fact, it barely has to impact your day-to-day life at all.

Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.

Comfortable, clear and removable – Invisalign transforms your smile without disrupting your life. Something that over 3 million people worldwide have already discovered.

These aligners are specifically designed to fit an individual’s teeth. They have to be worn at least 20 hours daily and removed when eating or drinking.

Every set of teeth is different, so no two orthodontic plans are identical. However, in most cases, the patient visits the orthodontist every two weeks to get a new set of aligning trays. Each set of trays is specifically designed by the orthodontist to move the teeth into the right positions. This process may take any length of time depending on the specific case.

They are not supposed to be worn while eating or drinking, and the patient must remove them to clean the aligners and the teeth after every meal. The aligners can stain if they come into contact with food particles in the mouth, so good dental hygiene is important.

Protective gear you can use the rest of your life.

Once you’re done with Invisalign, you’ll have what is essentially a clear mouth guard that you will wear at night to keep your teeth straight, but can also be used to whiten your teeth, protect your teeth from grinding at night or during sporting events (like mountain biking and lifting weights) – the device has many functions!


Shorter, more efficient dental cleanings with the hygienist

Teeth that are properly aligned tend to be more self-cleansing and more self-maintaining. They’re easier to floss and they’re easier for the hygienist to clean! Crooked teeth are very hard to clean. For example, when teeth are twisted and crowded, the instrument that the dental hygienist uses is rendered ineffective, allowing the bacteria to evade removal during the cleaning process.
