Like traditional braces, Invisalign works by incrementally moving your teeth into the correct position. This movement is carefully calculated and mapped by your orthodontist. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign moves your teeth with clear, fitted retainers. These retainers are virtually undetectable in day-to-day life, opening a new avenue of orthodontic care.
If traditional braces will not work for you, Invisalign may be the perfect option.
Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional braces. Because Invisalign is a relatively new system, a lot of people are unaware of the benefits and just how different they are from traditional braces.
Invisalign benefits include:
- Removable retainers mean that you can eat, brush, and floss without any interference. This also means that you do not have to worry about food being caught in your braces as you do with traditional braces.
- The technology and precision of the scanning process means that our team are able to predict a reasonably accurate timeline for your treatment.
- Invisalign is comparable to traditional braces in terms of time and cost.
- The retainers are made to fit your mouth precisely, which means less irritation and abrasions than traditional braces.
