While everyone wants a straighter smile, not everyone wants to go through extensive orthodontic treatment. In addition to the time commitment, many people also don’t want to deal with the unattractive look that comes with having metal braces in their mouth. Thanks to Invisalign, that isn’t the only option anymore.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment option that specializes in being discreet. Custom made to look like a mouth guard, Invisalign aligners are used to gradually shift and straighten your teeth. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and moves your teeth a little more than they last one did.
In addition to the face that Invisalign treatment is virtually invisible to the naked eye, there are also several other reasons why Invisalign is the preferred orthodontic treatment option amongst adults and teenagers. Those Include:
Treatment Time – Traditional orthodontic treatment can take years to complete. In fact, the average treatment time for traditional braces is anywhere from 2-4 years. Invisalign treatment can be completed in as little as 12-18 months.
Less Restrictions – The list of restrictions that come with traditional braces can be extensive. There are many things that you can’t eat or drink while wearing braces. Something as simple as brushing and flossing can even be a chore. With Invisalign, there are virtually no restrictions. Since the aligners are removable, you can eat, drink, brush, and floss normally.
