INVISALIGN: The Clear Alternative to Traditional Braces | Blog

Each day in the dental field we get asked the same question, I’d like to straighten my teeth, what do you recommend? In most cases Invisalign is the best option. There are so many benefits included within the process that many patients are unaware of. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign uses custom made clear trays designed specifically for you. What many patients love about Invisalign is the convenience of being able to remove the trays while you eat. Braces can leave lots of unwanted food particles wedged into them, making your eating process very difficult. There is also no pain associated with Invisalign, no tightening of the wires, no broken brackets literally the easiest way to straighten your teeth. Wearing the trays gradually moves your teeth into place. It’s as easy as removing your current tray every two weeks then popping in the next set of trays in. If I ever had to straighten my teeth over again, I would definitely choose Invisalign over traditional braces. As an adolescent I remember how embarrassed I was wearing the bands and brackets. How uncomfortable I was each time I had to have them tightened, and worst of all, lunch time at school, when everything I ate got stuck in between them. I could not wait until I got them removed. But now with Invisalign no one can even tell you are straightening your teeth. The clear trays make it easy to function in your everyday routines, whether going to a special event, speaking in public or dining out at a restaurant.

The first step in doing Invisalign is to schedule an appointment with your dental office for about an hour. At this time your dentist will take a few impressions and gather some information. Then in a few weeks you will return back to the office to receive your first sets of trays. Then the process begins! You will be on your way to a straighter smile. It’s as easy as that!
