What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a tooth straightening option that allows you to discreetly straighten your teeth. The clear aligners are custom made and changed about every two weeks. The average treatment lasts from 6 to 18 months. Adults and teens often choose Invisalign as their number one choice to straighten their teeth because of the clear aligners. One of the best advantages of using Invisalign to straighten your teeth is the ability to remove the aligners and eat anything you like.
How do you take care of Invisalign aligners?
Invisalign aligners are easy to care for and use. Your orthodontist will give you specific instructions on how to use your aligners and replace them about every two weeks during treatment. Generally, you need to wear the aligners for a majority of the day, preferably 20 hours. You have the option to remove your aligners before you eat any meal or snack which is a big difference compared to standard metal braces. You are also required to remove the aligners when drinking any hot liquids or drinks that can damage or discolor your aligners. Cleaning the aligners is quick and easy. You can use plain cool water to rinse them off when needed or you can soak the aligners while you are eating for a good cleaning.
Benefits of Using Invisalign to Straighten Your Teeth
- Improved self-esteem
- Comfortable to wear
- Easier to care for compared to standard metal braces
- You got to eat anything you want
- Nobody knows you are wearing braces
