There was a time when metal braces were the only way to straighten your teeth. They were painful, ugly, and (for an adult) embarrassing. With Invisalign, you can get the straight teeth you’ve always wanted without having to deal with metal braces and all the trouble they cause. Read on to learn more about Invisalign and how this system can help you straighten your teeth.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses clear plastic trays that fit snugly over your teeth to straighten your teeth. These trays slowly move the teeth into the right place. About every two weeks, you get a new tray. Here are 6 advantages of Invisalign:

  • No one will even notice that you have a tray on. Even if your friends and family know you are using Invisalign, they won’t be able to see the clear plastic.
  • They don’t hurt as much as metal braces. You don’t have to worry about sharp wires, brackets that rub against your cheek, or the pain that comes from having your braces tightened.
  • You can eat and drink what you like. You don’t need to worry about your favourite food getting stuck in your braces or hurting them. Just pull out your tray when it’s time to eat and enjoy.
  • It’s easier to keep them clean than metal braces. You won’t have to move around the brackets & wires to get a good clean on your teeth. When you want to brush and floss, all you have to do is take the tray out.
  • Invisalign treatment doesn’t usually take any longer than regular metal braces, and you have to go to the dentist less often.
  • Invisalign is good for more than just your looks. Straighter teeth are better for your teeth and jaw health.
