Is Invisalign Right For You?
The Benefits Of Invisalign
When it comes to needing braces, whether you are a teen or an adult, it’s never fun dealing with everything that comes with wires, rubber bands, etc. It’s especially not fun having your smile blocked by brackets 24/7 for months, possibly years. The great option of clear aligners, like Invisalign, is an excellent alternative choice.

The Difference: Wire Braces Vs. Invisalign
Now it’s time to decide which avenue you want to take to get that straight smile you’ve always wanted/needed. You may need to straighten your teeth for health reasons or maybe you want them for cosmetic reasons. Either way, you could find yourself debating which correctional option is best for you with the guidance of your dentist or orthodontist.
Braces have been the most reliable treatment option for straight teeth in the day of modern medicine (until the breakthrough of clear aligners in 1998) and also assist in adjusting your bite if needed. While you may not like the look of metal and/or ceramic braces, they are the only option for adjusting your bite currently.
When it comes to caring for your teeth during the straightening process, braces tend to be more difficult and tedious compared to clear aligners. With braces, your food options are limited, and cleaning your teeth becomes more upkeep to ensure you keep your teeth healthy. With clear aligners, you can remove them to eat, brush, and floss which makes keeping up with your oral health much easier.
The Process: How Invisalign Works
As stated by the FDA, Invisible braces, called aligners, are made of clear plastic material and are worn over your teeth to straighten them. You’ll wear each custom-made aligner for a few weeks. Then you get a new set for the next stage of your treatment. This way, your teeth are gradually moved into the correct position according to your personal treatment plan.
While Invisalign isn’t for everyone, it is a great solution for those wanting something more aesthetic and easy to adjust to in their daily life. Make sure to discuss treatment options with your dentist or orthodontist when deciding if Invisalign is right for you.
