If you’re one of the millions of Americans living with crooked teeth, you might be nervous about seeking orthodontic treatment—especially if you’re an adult worried about your professional appearance.

Fortunately, orthodontic patients today don’t have to live with a mouth full of embarrassing wires and brackets. The Invisalign® system is fast, effective, and durable, all while being nearly invisible. Here are just a few of the powerful benefits of Invisalign®.

Invisalign® Works

Invisalign® isn’t just for mild cases of crooked teeth. Since Invisalign® uses 3D renderings of your smile to create customized retainers, it can effectively treat most kinds of orthodontic problems, including underbites, overbites, crowding, space issues, and crossbites. Because Invisalign® is custom-fit to move specific teeth at a time, Invisalign® is, on average, faster than other orthodontic treatments. In fact, most patients are finished with treatment in under a year.

Straight Teeth Are Healthy Teeth

Having straight teeth isn’t just about being showing off that perfect movie-star smile. Patients with straighter teeth are less likely to struggle with problems like gingivitis and bad breath. This is because straight teeth are easier to brush and floss, leading to better periodontal health. Straight teeth are also better able to distribute bite forces evenly, protecting them from damage and wear.

Invisalign® Takes The Hassle Out of Orthodontics

Invisalign® retainers are completely removable, and should always be taken out when you eat. In other words, you can eat whatever you want without worrying about damaging your orthodontic appliance. It’s also easier to clean your teeth than it would be with braces fixed in place.

Clear Retainer Systems Are Easier On Your Mouth

Traditional braces can be uncomfortable to wear. Sharp brackets and wires can irritate the interior of your cheeks, causing cuts and discomfort. Invisalign® retainers are smooth, comfortable plastic that won’t cut or irritate the insides of your mouth, which makes them much more comfortable to wear.

Invisalign® Retainers Are Barely Visible

The Invisalign® system is virtually invisible when worn, You can go about your day without worrying about what people think of your teeth.
