Remember the days of metal braces with all the food restrictions and the pain of having wires in your mouth? Modern technology in orthodontics has produced an alternative, a new method of straightening teeth. Invisalign uses smooth plastic aligners which are custom made for the individual. These plastic covers go over the teeth and move them a little at a time in accordance to the orthodontist's specifications. More comfortable than traditional metal braces, clear Invisalign braces are removable so you can maintain good oral hygiene. Also the fact that they are removable means that you are able to eat the foods you love during therapy. You won't be in the dental office as much either as with metal braces because there are no wires to be adjusted.
One of the really nice advantages to wearing Invisalign braces is that they are virtually invisible. This is especially nice for the younger set who always seem to be so self-conscious. Another perk of this system is having the ability to actually see beforehand what your completed therapy will look like. You do not need to use your imagination to figure out how you will look with straight teeth. You will be able to see for yourself by way of a computer generated image.
