Invisalign® orthodontics is a popular treatment option for many teenagers and adults who would like to straighten their teeth and improve their bite alignment. Instead of using metal brackets and wires, this treatment uses clear trays that slide over the teeth and gently reposition them. While traditional metal bracket-and-wire braces may still be necessary for some patients, those with mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth and bite may benefit from using Invisalign® orthodontics. Dr. Heather F. Fleschler of Houston, TX, is a dentist who is pleased to offer Invisalign® as another treatment option for those looking to improve the alignment and appearance of their natural smile. Many choose this treatment because of its many benefits.
What Are the Advantages of Invisalign® Orthodontics?
- Comfortable treatment. Invisalign® utilizes clear plastic trays that are custom-made for your teeth. They fit your mouth just like a mouth guard, but they work on your teeth to keep them straighter over time. You progress through treatment by changing to the next tray in the series every 14 days.
- Aesthetic appearance. One advantage of Invisalign® is that it offers many aesthetic benefits. The trays are almost invisible when you wear them, so even people close to you won’t notice if you have Invisalign®.
- Easy to use and clean. Another benefit of using Invisalign® is the ease with which it can be used and maintained. Unlike traditional braces, there are no brackets or wires involved in the process. You simply remove each tray as needed and clean it with your toothbrush.
- Reduced risk of infection. Invisalign® trays are easy to keep clean, which helps reduce the risk of developing an oral disease or other dental issues.
Overall, there are many advantages to using Invisalign® for orthodontic treatment. Whether you’re looking for a more comfortable treatment option or simply want to improve the look of your smile, Invisalign is a great choice for many patients!
