You have always wanted to significantly improve your smile, but the thought of wearing unsightly braces has always been a big turn-off. Basically, it has been a deal breaker for you. Your hesitation in getting braces may have even increased if you are now out and in the working world, where you are judged by your appearance and impressions as much as talent can help define your successes and failures.

If this describes you, then you owe it to yourself to investigate the possibility of wearing an Invisalign appliance. Invisalign will reward you with all of the advantages of having a perfect smile, but without the downsides associated with wearing tradition metal braces.

Invisalign Is More Comfortable

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligner trays are removable. You have the flexibility to remove them for short periods of time to eat, drink, or attend an important social event.

As the Name Implies, Invisalign Is Invisible

Let’s face it. Although much of the stigma of wearing traditional braces has fallen by the wayside in recent years, they are still unattractive. Few people, if any, welcome the look of having metal brackets attached to their teeth. Perhaps the biggest advantage of Invisalign is that they are clear, giving wearers the look that they aren’t wearing any kind of appliance at all.

Invisalign Is Safer and Healthier

Invisalign braces are computer generated and the material used to create them is rounded, smooth, and more comfortable in a person’s mouth. No metal means that there is no potential for breaks that can leave a dangling wire that could puncture the inside of a person’s mouth. Because Invisalign braces can be removed, teeth are easier to clean more thoroughly, avoiding the possibility of decaying teeth underneath braces. This also leads to less gum disease and cavities as well.

Invisalign Works Faster

Traditional braces can take several years to move a patient’s teeth into position. Invisalign braces are designed to work faster and can produce desired results in as little as 12 to 18 months.
