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 traditional braces work, by applying pressure on each tooth so that it moves into its proper position. Your Decatur dentists create your custom aligners using a specialized computer software.
The clear plastic aligners are flexible and great for if you need to straighten your teeth discreetly. You won't have to walk around with a full mouth of metal like traditional braces. You do, however, need to keep them on for a minimum of 20 hours a day. You can take them off if you want to eat, brush your teeth, or floss. Some people like to take their clear aligners off for special events, but that's unnecessary because they're transparent.
There are many benefits to using clear aligners. They are great for your Oral Hygiene. Invisalign is a removable appliance, which will enable you to clean your teeth more thoroughly than if you have traditional metal braces. Make sure to brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once. Invisalign provide discretion. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign is transparent, so no one will notice you have braces. You don't need to worry about dietary issues. Traditional braces prevent you from eating your favorite foods, like apples or corn, but that's not an issue with Invisalign. You can eat whatever you want because the aligners you wear are removable. They're also very comfortable. Invisalign aligners are thin, flexible aligners that don't irritate the soft tissue in your mouth, unlike metal braces.
