What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign is an alternative to traditional metal braces that uses clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth. Because the aligners are nearly invisible, most people won’t even know you’re wearing them!
Benefits of Invisalign®
There are many benefits of Invisalign, including:
- Increased confidence – With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing you’re doing it! This can give you a major confidence boost.
- Improved oral health – Traditional braces can be difficult to keep clean, which can lead to tooth decay and other oral health problems. With Invisalign, you can brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
- Comfortable – The aligners are made of smooth plastic, so they’re much more comfortable than metal braces.
- Removable – You can take the aligners out to eat, drink, brush, and floss, so you don’t have to worry about food getting trapped in your braces.
- Affordable – Invisalign is often more affordable than traditional braces.
