If you are like most people, you want a beautiful smile. However, whenever you’ve thought about trying to get your teeth straightened so that you could have that one-in-a-million smile, the idea of a mouth filled with metal braces was too much to bear. However, as dental technology has improved, it’s now possible to get straight teeth and a great smile without having to endure all that metal. If you are curious about Invisalign, here’s what you need to know.
It’s Orthodontics, but not Traditional Orthodontics
While Invisalign still relies on standard orthodontic principles, it also uses state-of-the-art technology to help give you a great smile. Rather than brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear, removable trays to help straighten your teeth over a period of time. Custom-designed using sophisticated computer technology, the trays are used in a step-by-step approach to straighten your teeth.
Nobody Will Ever Know
Since Invisalign trays are clear, customized for an exact fit in your mouth, and are practically invisible, nobody will ever know you are undergoing orthodontic treatment unless you tell them. As a result, people will gradually start to notice your teeth becoming straighter and your smile getting bigger and better than ever before.
The Aligners are Removable
Unlike traditional metal braces that were affixed to your teeth and could not be removed, Invisalign trays can be easily removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. Remember, while it’s important to always wear your Invisalign trays, it’s just as important that you brush and floss regularly, since this will increase your chances of having an even better-looking smile.
Once you receive an Invisalign tray, you will wear it for a period of two weeks. Once that two-week period ends, you will receive a new tray to wear, allowing your teeth to gradually shift where they need to be for that perfect smile.
