It is common for adults to associate orthodontic treatment with teens sporting a mouthful of metal. Rightly so, this does describe many patients who wear dental braces. But, modern technology has redefined the design of today’s orthodontics. Patients now have the option of wearing discreet Invisalign clear aligners as an alternative to metal braces.
Crafted of undetectable polyurethane plastic, Invisalign is virtually invisible. The clear aligners are not cemented on to teeth like traditional metal or clear orthodontics; the trays are removable for eating, teeth brushing and flossing, and for special occasions. This is a great benefit, but it can also hinder progress if you take the aligners out too often. Following your treatment plan is important.
There are many advantages to choosing Invisalign instead of wearing traditional metal braces:
Advancements in dental technology have to lead to further improvements, and now clear aligners can correct malocclusions that were once too complex for treatment with removable orthodontic trays. To see if you’re a candidate for Invisalign, book a consultation with our office today.
