Straight teeth are an extremely desirable attribute, while metal braces, the most common procedure to help straighten teeth, are not. Invisalign braces have become extremely popular over the last decade due to their nearly undetectable appearance, less painful adjustment of teeth and other desirable advantages.
One of the most difficult challenges of having braces is cleaning your teeth properly. With Invisalign aligners, you are able to remove the fitted trays. Once the trays are removed, you can brush and floss your teeth, as well as clean the aligners separately.
Your gums are able to better fit your teeth when your smile is properly aligned. The closer the fit of gums around teeth, the less bacteria and food particles can cause problems. Invisalign is able to gently move your teeth into place without harming your gums, making it hard to floss, or poking and cutting you like traditional braces.
Jaw problems, uneven wearing, sensitivity and a host of other issues can result from misaligned teeth. Invisalign is able to remove the chance of these problems by aligning your smile and creating an optimal situation for dental care.
