A Semester of Clear & Confident Smiles
Don’t be voted most likely to set off a metal detector in your school yearbook. For a metal-free form of orthodontic treatment this fall, consider using Invisalign Teen.
Invisalign Teen, or simply Invisalign, is a teeth-straightening system that is less noticeable and more comfortable than traditional braces. The system’s aligners, which are formulated using 3-D computer graphics technology, are made from a clear, flexible plastic designed to be invisible and fit comfortably in your mouth.
As a result, you do not have to worry about sharp wiring impeding your comfort. All the while, you have the luxury of undergoing first-rate orthodontic treatment without any metallic appliances interfering with your normal smile.
In addition to the benefit of an aesthetically pleasing smile, another advantage of Invisalign is its user-friendly qualities. Invisalign’s customizable aligners are removable, allowing you multiple freedoms that traditional braces do not.
For one, you can eat whatever you want. Unlike with regular braces, Invisalign does not prevent you from consuming foods like corn-on-the-cob or a hot slab of barbequed ribs, because you simply need to take out your aligners in order to enjoy them. Furthermore, while your Invisalign aligners should be worn most of the time, this removability gives you the option to take them out for important social events, pictures, etc.
How They Work
Using the images and instructions rendered through Invisalign technology, your aligners are designed to move your teeth in small, steady steps until they reach the final position necessary for a straight smile.
Based on the amount your teeth need to move, anywhere from 12 to 48 aligners may be calibrated for the treatment. Each of these aligners will be prescribed to you for about two weeks of continuous usage (only being taken out for eating, brushing/flossing, and sparingly for the aforementioned important social gatherings). As your treatment goes on, and you go through these different aligners, your teeth will gradually move into the desired position.
