Invisalign® clear braces are a great way to straighten your teeth without the hassle and pain associated with traditional metal braces. These aligners offer more benefits than you may realize. Our cosmetic dentist wants you to know why Invisalign® could be perfect for you or your teen.
1. Invisalign® is Less Noticeable
One of the best perks of Invisalign® is that they are barely noticeable by your family members, friends and coworkers. Adults and teenagers often avoid straightening their smile due to the embarrassment associated with traditional braces, but these clear aligners take this distress out of the equation.
2. No Dietary Restrictions
You are required to wear Invisalign® aligners for 20-22 hours each day, which means they can be removed when you eat or drink anything other than water. You don’t have to give up any of your favorite foods. Just remember to brush and floss before reapplying your aligner.
3. No Painful Tightening Sessions
Metal braces need to be tightened and readjusted in our cosmetic dentistry office. Many patients feel that these time-consuming appointments are uncomfortable, if not painful. The Invisalign® aligners are switched out every two weeks by you and most patients report very little discomfort. You won’t need to visit our office in Pleasant Hill as often either, as long as you adhere to your treatment plan and take care of your aligners and oral health.
4. Invisalign® Can Correct Many Teeth & Bite Problems
You may not realize you’re the perfect candidate for Invisalign®. These clear braces can fix many issues including:
- Teeth crowding
- Teeth gaps
- Crooked teeth
- Over bite
- Under bite
- Cross bite
- Open bite
5. A Straighter Smile in 6-18 Months
The length of your Invisalign® treatment depends heavily on the extent of dental work needed and how closely you stick to the plan. If you have minor teeth or bite problems, you could see your final results in as little as three months with Invisalign® Express, but the most common treatment range is between six months and a year and a half.
