Orthodontics can provide the treatment needed to straighten crooked teeth or close gaps in your smile. While you may desire a straight, beautiful smile, few people want to ensure metal braces for 1-2 years or more. Now there are other options for improving the appearance and health of your smile. At Mint Dental, we are happy to offer a comfortable, discreet way to align your teeth with our Invisalign® clear aligners.
An “Invisible” Alternative to Braces
If you are unhappy with your smile due to overlapping teeth, misaligned bite or other malocclusions, Invisalign may be the right treatment for you. Invisalign aligners are made from clear, BPA-free plastic that are customized to fit over your teeth. The aligner is designed to exert pressure on your teeth in specific areas to shift them into the desired position. This is the same method used by traditional braces, but it is done in a more discreet and comfortable way.
The first big benefit of Invisalign over braces is the appearance. Braces require brackets and wires attached to the teeth – even the white or clear options are still fairly noticeable. Invisalign clear aligners are practically invisible for discreet orthodontic treatment. Other benefits of Invisalign over braces include:
- More comfortable – no wires or brackets rubbing against your lips or tongue
- Eat any foods you want – you can take out your aligners to eat and brush your teeth
- Fewer dentist appointments – most Invisalign patients need fewer visits for their aligners versus braces
- Easier to keep clean – Invisalign aligners can be removed to clean and make it easier to brush and floss
For many people, Invisalign is the best choice for orthodontic treatment. Both teens and adults can use Invisalign, with new aligners prescribed every few weeks. The treatment time is similar to braces, but the comfort and convenience make it a more enjoyable option.
