Everyone's talking about Invisalign braces, and for good reason. Invisalign braces have completely transformed the way we think about and experience dental braces. With Invisalign braces, there's no worry about metal brackets and wires that are uncomfortable and unattractive. Invisalign braces include a series of clear plastic aligners that are virtually invisible and completely removable. You can eat what you want, drink what you want, and brush and floss more thoroughly to keep your dental health in top shape!

The big difference is the clear factor -- Invisalign braces are transparent and virtually invisible to the naked eye. Invisalign can be used for virtually any type of malocclusion with positive results. While a lisp is common during the first day or two of wear, you'll get used to the fit in no time.

Here are other advantages of Invisalign braces over traditional wire braces:

Chair time is greatly reduced. With wire braces you're in the dental office every two weeks or so for a tightening. With an Invisalign program, you'll see your dentist only every six weeks and he or she will arm you with your next few sets of aligners and monitor your progress.

Oral hygiene is improved. Unlike traditional braces, you can remove your Invisalign braces when you eat, drink, brush and floss. That means your teeth are less likely to trap food and act as a catch-all for dental plaque. In addition, the ability to remove Invisalign braces makes for improved dental cleanings! 

Only you and your dentist or orthodontist can decide if Invisalign is right for you. The nature of your teeth, the degree of work that will be required and your lifestyle are all taken into account. If the sheer unsightly look of metal in your mouth has kept you out of braces, there is hope! Straighter teeth make for easier cleanings and a healthier mouth.
