You may have been wanting to straighten your teeth for a while now, but as an adult, the thought of wearing metal braces may not seem like a valid option. Invisalign can provide the flexibility and convenience you are looking for during orthodontic treatment. Invisalign aligners are thin and clear, making them a comfortable choice for orthodontic treatment. Invisalign aligners are generally worn about 20 hours per day, and they are removed for eating and brushing. Since aligners are removable, many orthodontic patients like the flexibility of being able to remove them for a dinner out with friends, or an important office meeting. One of the greatest benefits of Invisalign aligners is the ability to brush and floss the teeth with normal ease. Brushing and flossing with standard braces is more challenging and oral hygiene can be difficult to maintain. We have noticed that not only is oral hygiene easier with Invisalign, oral health may improve both during and after treatment with Invisalign. Whether it's a space between teeth that seems to trap food, or a space that is so tight making it difficult to floss, straight teeth are easier to care for than crooked teeth.
