Traditional braces are a fine dental treatment when there is an extensive amount of shifting that needs to be done to get teeth, especially back teeth, into optimal alignment. However, when it is only the teeth within the viewing area of your smile that need to be straightened, traditional braces can seem too much of a hassle to endure. That is where Invisalign aligners can help.
Invisalign aligners are clear plastic covers that are custom made to fit your teeth and slowly move them into alignment. They accomplish this without the wires and brackets of traditional braces. More adults are choosing to straighten their teeth because this system is so convenient and easy to live with.
The clear aligners are hardly visible, so people do not notice you are wearing them. You can keep up with your regular oral hygiene because the aligners are removable. Take them out for brushing and flossing your teeth, and put them back on when you are finished.
You will not need to change your diet to wear the aligners. Traditional braces restrict certain foods because of the wires and brackets. This is not the case with Invisalign. Remove your aligners when it is time to eat, and enjoy the foods you are accustomed to eating. When finished, put the aligners back on your teeth. It is as simple as that. No special diets, and no special cleaning devices. Straightening your teeth could not be any easier.
