What to Consider About Invisalign® Treatment

Orthodontic treatment comes in many forms and can be accomplished using a wide range of advanced appliances and aligners. For example, with Invisalign® clear aligners, patients in Fort Worth, TX, can address several different types of malocclusion in a highly discreet and comfortable manner. Made from biocompatible, BPA-free acrylic, Invisalign® aligners are designed to fit comfortably over your teeth and gradually guide them into straighter positions. Unlike braces, which require brackets and wires to straighten crooked teeth, clear aligners help make orthodontic treatment much more discreet and manageable.

People won’t notice your aligners

Invisalign® treatment is designed to optimize discretion in several ways. For example, the clear acrylic that they’re made from is virtually invisible when placed over your teeth, making it almost impossible for anyone to know they’re there unless you want them to. Also, your aligners will be designed using our highly precise digital iTero® scanner, which allows for highly accurate designing and crafting of each aligner to closely fit your smile’s natural contour. In fact, their discreet nature is one of the most popular benefits of Invisalign® for adults and teens alike.

Your treatment won’t get in the way

Besides the way braces might make your smile appear, another common consideration with orthodontic treatment is how it might impact daily activities, like dental hygiene and eating. For example, if you wear braces, then you’ll have to refrain from certain foods to avoid them getting stuck in your brackets and wires. You may also need additional products, such as interdental cleaners, to properly clean your braces and teeth every day. By contrast, Invisalign® aligners aren’t bonded to your teeth, so you can temporarily remove them to perform your daily activities as conveniently as before your treatment.

It will make your teeth healthier

The results of your Invisalign® treatment are the most beneficial thing about your clear aligners. When your teeth are straighter and more properly aligned, they’re easier to keep clean of harmful oral bacteria with good hygiene and preventive cleanings. They’re also better able to balance the pressure of your bite, which makes them less susceptible to being damaged. Because of the many potential risks of misaligned teeth, straightening them with Invisalign® aligners can be the best thing you do for your smile’s health and appearance.
