All About Invisalign
At All About Braces, we want nothing more than to provide our patients with high quality orthodontic care in a way that's most convenient for them. But contrary to what our name may imply, traditional braces aren't actually the only form of orthodontic treatment - while metal braces are a tried and true method, they're one of many forms of treatment. For this blog, we wanted to talk about another one of our favorite forms of treatment - Invisalign.
A Brand New Smile Without the Brackets
Invisalign is revolutionary form of treatment that turns the concept of braces on its head. While traditional braces use metal wires and brackets to pull teeth into the proper tradition, Invisalign does away with the metalwork altogether, instead relying on a series of clear plastic aligners that fit directly onto the arch of the teeth. The aligners are virtually invisible, so no one needs to know you're straightening your teeth, and they're completely removable and can be easily popped in and out to brush, floss, eat, or drink. This means maintaining proper oral hygiene, which is critical for effective orthodontic treatment, is a breeze, and - here's the best part - it comes with no dietary restrictions! You can still eat all of your favorite foods without feeling guilty or risking damage to your appliances. Just make sure you brush your teeth afterwards!
All of these advantages make Invisalign an excellent option for adults. Many of our adult patients are finding that the added convenience and aesthetics of Invisalign make treatment easier, more convenient, and less disruptive to their personal and work lives. But Invisalign can work for any age - there's also a variant called Invisalign Teen that is specifically designed specifically for adolescent patients.
