Clear Treatment Options
Well, Invisalign is great for being discreet because it is a clear plastic aligner. That has been very helpful for a lot of patients who may not do traditional braces just because they do not want to have the wires. And it’s fairly easy. Patients are able to wear them. Most patients say, ‘I can’t believe it, it’s this easy. I can’t believe that this is actually straightening my teeth,’ but we can show them befores and afters and they’re astonished that just wearing this clear plastic aligner has done that for them.
It gives them also the ability to take it out, to eat, to brush and floss. Those are some of the biggest challenges when you do have traditional braces is eating and then cleaning around all the wires. With the Invisalign, you take it out to do both of those things. And most of the time patients are surprised that it’s so comfortable. Traditional braces you do have some soreness of your teeth while they’re moving. Invisalign not as much because with a tray, the way that works is that it’s controlling the forces so you don’t get nearly the soreness that you may get with a traditional braces. So patients are really, really liking it.
