As the name implies, Invisalign® is transparent as it is made from durable medical-grade plastic, and thus it is not nearly as noticeable as metal braces. Most patients, especially adults, prefer not to have metal tracks in their mouth. That is why we custom-fit a series of clear aligners to reposition your teeth, which are molded to gradually straighten your teeth into a beautiful smile
Unlike metal braces, in which food is prone to become trapped, Invisalign® is not comprised of any heavy hardware. The custom-molded aligners are removable and simplify oral hygiene. Invisalign® offers straighter teeth while it prevents periodontal disease, eliminates plaque buildup; and reduces tooth decay
There is no need to worry about triggering other dental problems. Metal braces have a reputation for intensifying TMJ, and promoting other chewing difficulties and speech impediments. Straightening your teeth with the Invisalign® technology, on the other hand, does not lead to any complications.
With traditional orthodontics, certain foods are restricted while the Invisalign® technology allows you to eat whatever you please. As such, the Invisalign® technology does not disrupt your life in any way.
Compared to other types of braces, the underlying benefit of Invisalign® is the comfort level. Completely free of wires, rubber bands and metal, patients experience significantly less mouth irritation and require fewer adjustments or dental appointments.
In addition, our 3-D computer technology allows you to actually see how your teeth will look after the treatment is complete!
