Transparent aligner systems like Invisalign® are a newly emerging alternative to conventional wire and bracket orthodontics. This system is especially popular with adults and teenagers for numerous reasons, among them, being:
- Comfort – made of a special blend of nylon and acrylic plastic, clear aligners are softer on your gums and won't cut your cheeks or tongue with broken wires
- Appearance – with a name like Invisalign, it's no mystery that this system practically disappears against your teeth. Others may never know you're wearing them!
- Less Hassle – clear aligner trays are removable so that you can eat and drink without incumbrance. You also take them out to brush and floss, which is much easier than working around a bunch of metal.
Finally, Invisalign treatment is usually accomplished in a shorter amount of time than conventional braces. The length of your treatment will depend on your particular case. For example, if your smile is only slightly misaligned, you could complete treatment in less than a year.
