If you need braces as an adult, chances are you don’t want the shiny metal braces most often found in kids and adolescents. Now you have a choice – now you can choose braces that are practically invisible but still do their job. Invisalign are adult braces.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a clear aligner, or braces if you will, that is virtually invisible on your teeth. They act as traditional orthodontics and straighten your teeth. They are removable, comfortable and custom made just for you.
How do they Work?
Each set of aligners shifts your teeth slightly, using just the right amount of force. You change out complete sets on a weekly basis as your teeth gradually move into position. It’s easy to wear them up to 22 hours a day since they are so comfortable. Remove them when you brush and floss your teeth and when you eat. Since you remove them when eating, there are no restrictions on the type of food you can eat as there is with traditional braces. They also won’t cut your mouth if you participate in sports.
Don’t live with crooked or misaligned teeth. Having properly aligned teeth decreases your chances of gum disease since the gum fits properly around the tooth. If your teeth are misaligned, it also gives bacteria more places to hide. Bacteria in the mouth lead to gum bleeding, bad breath, and tooth loss. Eventually, it can lead to heart disease, stroke and other serious diseases as the bacteria starts to travel through your system. Not to mention that you want a beautiful smile to show off!
Don’t let the thought of metal braces and brackets scare you off.
