Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign®

Posted .

Thanks to modern science and the increasing desire for better aesthetics with our smiles, a clear form of Invisalign® is available to straighten your teeth without any metal at all. Invisalign can give you the smile you desire without the stigma that comes with “metal-mouth.”

Straighten your teeth with clear orthodontic aligners. Listed below are some frequently asked questions about Invisalign:

Question: What are some of the benefits of Invisalign?
– Thanks to their patented thermoplastic design, Invisalign aligners are metal-free and extremely comfortable. Invisalign aligners are fully customizable to each person and are clear enough that they can go unnoticed by many people, including friends and family. Invisalign can straighten teeth discreetly and safely without the need for wires or metal bars.

Question: What are the food restrictions?
– There are no food restrictions with Invisalign. The aligners can be removed before meals and snapped back into place after.

Question: What are the benefits of straight teeth?
– Studies have shown that individuals with crooked teeth are more likely to develop tooth decay and gum disease than with straight teeth. This is because plaque and food debris have an easier time hiding in the crevices of crooked teeth. In addition, crooked teeth are much more susceptible to wear from grinding and clenching your teeth.
