If you’ve been considering straightening your teeth but want to avoid metal wires, brackets, and rubber bands, Invisalign® could be a great choice! Clear aligners take out all the moving parts associated with braces and streamline your treatment while staying discreet. But how does Invisalign work, exactly? Our dentist in Encinitas, CA, explains and outlines why clear aligners might be the best option for you.
Whereas traditional metal braces use brackets and wires that are gradually tightened over time to straighten teeth, Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to achieve your perfect smile. Instead of coming into the office to have your braces tightened, you just have to pick up your next set of clear aligners. Each successive set of aligners will exert more pressure on your teeth to move them into the desired position.
The benefits of Invisalign are numerous and allow you more freedom to live your normal life while undergoing treatment. They include:
Invisalign is extremely effective for mild to moderate problems. It can treat crowded teeth, gapped teeth, misaligned teeth, bite problems, and crooked teeth all while remaining discreet and nearly invisible!
For more severe cases of misalignment or cases that require surgery, traditional metal braces may be necessary to get your ideal smile. Our doctor will evaluate your case and ensure that you are a good candidate for clear aligners.
