Invisalign Overview

added on: March 10, 2017

You have probably seen or known someone who had to use traditional style braces for their teeth. There is a good chance that you have heard some horror stories from those people too about getting things stuck in their braces or the pain that they could cause. You want to have straight teeth, but you do not like the idea of having to deal with all the cons of traditional metal braces. Fortunately, you do not have to thanks to the Invisalign clear braces available today.

What’s the Difference Between Invisalign and Traditional Braces?

The clear aligners work to straighten your teeth, but you will find quite a few differences between these and the traditional braces. They are more comfortable and they are removable. This means you will not have to worry about changing your diet when you are using these clear braces. You simply take out your Invisalign when you are eating or drinking anything other than water.

Since there are no metal wires or brackets, many find that using the Invisalign braces is a much more comfortable experience. In addition, since the aligners are clear, they are more difficult for other people to see. The metal braces, on the other hand, are very noticeable.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

It is important to remember that each patient is different, and the amount of time it will take for the clear aligners to work for you may vary. In most cases, it will take about a year for the aligners to straighten your smile. You can speak with our Invisalign specialist to learn more about the process and to get a better idea of how long it will take you.
