Traditional metal braces are made from brackets that are fixed onto teeth and which are attached to wires and elastics. While traditional fixed braces are still widely used, nowadays it’s becoming far more common for patients to choose Invisalign.
Treatment Is Discreet
Invisalign utilises the very latest orthodontic techniques to nearly invisibly move teeth, using advanced and fully removable aligners. These aligners are made from clear, thin, BPA-free plastic and are custom-designed to fit snugly over your teeth. Once in place, they are very difficult to see, and this is one of the primary reasons why Invisalign is so popular.
No Need to Change Your Dietary or Oral Hygiene Habits
There is no need to change your diet as you simply remove the aligners for eating. It is just as easy when you need to brush and floss your teeth, as you can simply brush and floss normally. With Invisalign you can enjoy good oral health right throughout your treatment.
Treatment May Be Faster Than Traditional Braces
Invisalign can be a quicker way to straighten your teeth, especially if you only require cosmetic changes to reposition your front teeth. Most adults typically complete treatment within a year or so.
