If you want to avoid metal braces and still improve your smile, Invisalign clear aligner orthodontic treatment may be right for you. Unlike braces that use brackets and wires to move teeth into a new position, Invisalign uses clear, BPA-free plastic aligners that fit comfortably over teeth. Every few weeks a new set of aligners is used to gently position your teeth into the beautiful and aligned smile you’ve always wanted.
Invisible/Clear Braces for Adults
Invisalign clear braces, or aligners, were originally designed with adults in mind. Many adults are hesitant to undergo orthodontic treatment because of the appearance and some life-style limitations of braces. Invisalign is an excellent option for adults who want to improve the health and appearance of their smile discreetly.
With Invisalign, adults can eat the foods they enjoy and maintain their usual brushing and flossing routine because the aligners can be removed for eating and cleaning. Plus, Invisalign aligners are almost invisible, and they do not require as many visits to the orthodontist during treatment as braces do. All the aligners are created at the beginning of treatment and there are no brackets or wires, so no orthodontic emergencies.
Invisalign clear aligners can be used instead of braces for many types of orthodontic treatments. To find out if Invisalign is right for you, contact us at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville to schedule a free smile evaluation.
