Invisalign Facts

If you have wanted to correct certain issues with your teeth and make them straighter, now might be the best time ever to do just that. You do not have to go the traditional braces route in many cases, as Invisalign is clear, relatively painless, and accomplishes the job in about half the time. Let us take some time to go over some Invisalign facts for you.


The first thing to keep in mind is that Invisalign braces do tend to cost a bit more than traditional braces. This is due to the fees incurred for the laboratory, as the computer modeling is rather sophisticated. The tradeoff is that the treatment will usually be completed in a year, which is often half of that associated with traditional braces.

Teeth Straightening

Invisalign is a special and unique tool that is proven to be useful to straighten teeth. That being said, you want a skilled orthodontist to administer the treatment and the clear aligners that go with them. Keep in mind that more than one million people around the world have already benefited from Invisalign, and that number continues to grow every year.

Removable Features

While traditional braces must remain in your mouth all the time, Invisalign braces are based on trays that are meant to be removed. This means that you can take them out when eating or drinking. You are also able to remove them when brushing or flossing your teeth. Many people note that Invisalign braces cause less pain to the gums and the lips as a result. Do remember, however, that all braces have some level of discomfort associated with them, as your teeth will be moving.
