Over the last ten years, Invisalign invisible braces have taken over the dental world by storm. Until 2000, standard braces were the only option available for people who had crooked teeth and wanted to straighten them. We all know the standard complaints about braces: they don’t look good, they can hurt, they are difficult to clean and foods like peanut butter sandwiches are almost impossible to eat and clean off of your braces.
What are Invisalign Invisible Braces?
Invisalign invisible braces are a clear orthodontic device made of soft, BPA-free plastic. They fit over the teeth and are invisible. Unlike regular braces, they can be taken out for eating and brushing. They don’t cut you if you sustain an impact to the face. They use softer pressure so they don’t cause as much pain.
Most patients wear Invisalign for between nine and fifteen months. Unlike standard braces, where the same braces stay in for up to two years, Invisalign invisible braces are worn for two weeks and replaced by one that is more aggressive. Using them is a lot like climbing a ladder. Every two weeks you take another step towards a great smile.
However, there are some situations in which Invisalign won’t work for you. They can’t move teeth up or down. They also can’t help you have rotated teeth. The best way to find out whether or not they are right for you is to visit your dentist and have a thorough examination.
