Here, our Langley orthodontists share why straightening your teeth with Invisalign® is so easy that you will want to try Invisalign before turning to traditional metal braces to straighten your smile.
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear custom aligners that are almost invisible when worn. Easy to use and comfortable to wear, Invisalign will allow you to straighten your teeth discreetly, without that hassle of metal braces.
On day one, your orthodontist will create a personalized treatment plan just for you. Your plan will map out your orthodontic treatment from start to finish to help keep you on-track each step of the way.
Straightening your teeth with Invisalign is easy! Simply wear each set of aligners for two weeks (or as prescribed by your orthodontist), then move on to the next set of aligners in your series until your teeth reach their corrected positions.
Invisalign vs Braces
When you compare Invisalign clear custom aligners to the brackets and wires of traditional metal braces, you will see that Invisalign has a number of advantages:
- Invisalign Has Different Stages - Invisalign aligners are designed to meet the orthodontic treatment challenges of each stage of dental development. Invisalign, Invisalign for Teens, and Invisalign First for children are all designed to specifically address the unique needs of each age group.
- Invisalign is Almost Invisible - Invisalign aligners are created from a thin clear plastic and are custom made to perfectly fit your unique smile. For patients who are concerned about the appearance of traditional metal braces, Invisalign's clear plastic aligners are barely noticeable to others when worn, making Invisalign the discreet way to straighten your teeth.
- Invisalign Aligners are Removable - Worried about having to give up popcorn on movie night, or any other favourite foods? You don't have to with Invisalign. Invisalign aligners are removable. Simply remove your aligners and store them in their handy container while you eat, then brush and floss your teeth, rinse your aligners under water and return them to your mouth. Unlike traditional metal braces, there's no need to change your diet to straighten your teeth with Invisalign.
- Invisalign is Convenient - When you straighten your teeth with braces you will need to attend frequent adjustment appointments, but with Invisalign there are no adjustments! Invisalign's clear aligners don't require adjustments. You will only need to visit your orthodontist for brief checkups and progress reviews about every six weeks.
