One of the most common reasons people are reluctant to have braces is anxiety about the way they will look; braces have never really been perceived as cool and the thought of having braces for a long period of time can make some patients very anxious. With Invisalign, these concerns are a thing of the past, as they can straighten your teeth and create beautiful smiles without anyone else even being able to spot the brace. Invisalign offers an alternative to conventional fixed braces in the form of light, removable aligners. With this treatment, the patient wears a series of aligners, which have been custom-made for them based on their individual treatment plan; each aligner is different and they stay in place for 2 weeks before being swapped for the next in the series. Invisalign aligners sit over the top of the teeth and they are made from transparent materials to ensure that they are virtually invisible to others; there are also no metal components, no painful bands and the forces used are very gentle, so you should enjoy very comfortable treatment. One of the most popular aspects of Invisalign treatment is the freedom it affords you; with this kind of brace, you can eat and clean your teeth in exactly the same way as you did before you started wearing braces and if you want an hour off to look your best for a special occasion or a hot date, you can simply take your aligner out. Invisalign is suitable for patients with a range of different orthodontic prescriptions and it has many benefits for patients of all ages.
