Invisalign® is a revolutionary technology that promotes teeth straightening without the need for conventional metal braces.
For decades, kids and adults alike have dreaded the thought of braces due to the look, feel and restrictions of the metal brackets and rubber bands. Adults may have held off on braces in their youth because their teeth weren't quite crooked enough to warrant the time and work involved.
While the concept of removable aligners is not new, today's computer technology makes it possible to produce a sequence of aligners that are slightly different from each other. This allows for treatment that progresses similarly to the gradual tightening of metal braces.
The benefits of Invisalign are immeasurable to those that use them. Because the patient can remove the aligners, foods that are off limits with metal braces (popcorn, candy, nuts, corn, etc.) become okay to eat, at least part of the time.
Comfort is a huge plus when it comes to dental correction. With regular braces, maintenance such as periodic tightening can be a hassle and quite painful. However, Invisalign comes without the discomfort of metal braces and minimal maintenance.
Of course, the fact that Invisalign is practically invisible might be the biggest draw. For adults who are well established in their jobs, which may involve a great deal of public speaking, undetectable tooth straightening is priceless.
