Probably the most obvious thing about a product called “Invisalign” is that they’re invisible. Unlike metal or ceramic braces which are cemented to your teeth and visible to the entire world, Invisalign is a clear, plastic tray that rests over your teeth. It’s virtually invisible.
If you’ve had braces, or know someone who has, you’ve undoubtedly heard complaints about pain. Metal braces can poke and aggravate your gums and mouth. Each Invisalign tray is custom fit for your mouth and your mouth only; the edges of the trays are smooth and soft, so they won’t irritate your mouth, cheeks or gums.
Having food stuck in your teeth is no fun. Having food stuck in your metal braces is even worse. Luckily, with Invisalign, you don’t have to worry. The soft, plastic aligners are removable for easy cleaning. Need to remove Invisalign to give that important work presentation? No problem. Want to brush and floss your teeth without interference? No problem.
Invisalign is great for those with busy schedules. Typically, Invisalign patients require fewer visits than those with braces. You can also continue doing all the things you normally would, from brushing and flossing to eating whatever you’d like.
