More about Invisalign
Invisalign is composed of custom-made clear aligners that are made to fit your upper and lower teeth. The aligners function the same way as traditional braces work—by applying pressure on each tooth so that they all move into their proper positions. Your Hollywood dentist creates your custom aligners using a specialized computer software.
The clear plastic aligners are flexible and are great if you need to straighten your teeth but don't want anyone to know that you're wearing braces. Another benefit is that you can take them off if you want to eat, brush your teeth, or floss, although you do need to keep them on for a minimum of 20 hours a day.
There are several other advantages to Invisalign. Here are a few:
- Discreet Look: Traditional metal braces are noticeable, especially if you're a teenager or an adult. Invisalign is transparent, so no one will notice that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
- No Dietary Deprivations: Traditional braces prevent you from eating your favorite foods, such as taffy apples or corn on the cob, but that's not an issue with Invisalign. You can eat whatever you want because the aligners you wear are removable!
- Oral Hygiene: Because Invisalign is a removable appliance, you will also be able to clean your teeth more thoroughly than if you had traditional metal braces. Make sure to brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once.
