Firstly, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible. It’s fairly common for no one to even notice that you’re wearing the aligners because they are virtually invisible, making Invisalign a perfect fit with modern lifestyles and most day-to-day activities and interactions.
Invisalign aligners are removable providing the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners when you need to.
And you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and to maintain good oral hygiene.
Unlike traditional fixed braces, there are no metal brackets or wires to contend with. This means that in most cases less time is spent at the practice for adjustments.
Finally, Invisalign treatment planning allows you to view your future smile virtually before you even begin treatment so you can see how your teeth are expected to look when your treatment is complete.
More than 2.5 million patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign. The number of Invisalign smiles grows daily. Call New Road Dental Practice for more information about Invisalign.
