For those that have crooked teeth or a misaligned bite, traditional braces are not the only option. Consider Invisalign® in Middleburg Heights, Ohio, if you wish to straighten your teeth without the use of metal brackets and wires. Invisalign is a series of clear, comfortable, removable aligners that straighten the teeth over time. Each set of aligners is worn over the teeth for about two weeks.
Invisalign has several advantages over braces. While traditional braces require brackets and wires that can mar the appearance of your smile, Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually invisible. It is very likely that others won’t even notice that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. The wires of braces can poke the inside of your cheeks and mouth, causing irritation. Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic. Brushing and flossing can be difficult with braces, but Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss as usual. Those who wear braces cannot have certain foods, like bubble gum, popcorn, and sticky foods. However, with removable Invisalign aligners, you can continue to eat your favorite foods.
