You might have heard of clear braces and wondered if they would be right for you. Perhaps you are an adult who has been living with crooked or misaligned teeth, and you think now could be the right time for you to make a change. One thing you know for sure is that you do not want to live through years of metal brackets and wires to straighten your teeth.
Invisalign clear braces are offered in Jonesboro, AR by Anthony Bartels, DDS. They are an excellent choice for older teens and adults who don’t want to commit to traditional orthodontics.
What makes Invisalign clear braces such a great option?
They Are Virtually Invisible
Invisalign clear braces are custom trays made of clear plastic that gently move your teeth into a predetermined position.
When you are wearing the aligners, they can barely be seen, so most people won’t even be aware you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
They Are Comfortable
Invisalign’s smooth plastic trays are comfortable to wear. Because there are no metal wires, you won’t have to worry about an errant wire poking your gums or cheek. The movement of your teeth with Invisalign is gradual, so you won’t have the soreness that is associated with getting traditional metal braces adjusted after each trip to the orthodontist.
They Are Removable
With traditional braces, there are food restrictions, and cleaning your teeth can be a real challenge. But Invisalign’s plastic aligners come out for eating and brushing, so your oral health habits can continue as before. And you can still eat all of your favorite foods.
One caveat: Because they are removable, it can be easy to slack off on the required number of hours the aligners need to be worn each day. For your treatment to be successful, you must be diligent about wearing them for at least 22 hours each day.
