Invisalign: A Brief Introduction
Facts About Invisalign
The aligners are carefully custom-made to suit your needs.

Invisalign, however, is virtually invisible. Made of a clear material, it easily blends in with your natural teeth and doesn’t stand out the way conventional braces do, making them an ideal choice for those who want a low-profile treatment.
The clear and smooth material makes it a comfortable choice. With no metal rubbing against your inner cheeks or lips, the feeling is very different than wearing conventional metal braces.
Treatment time varies from patient to patient depending on the severity of their misalignment. Talk to our dentist to find out how long this process will take in your specific case.
Invisalign aligners require maintenance just like other braces do. Whenever you take off the aligners, make sure you brush them properly under warm water before putting them on again. This prevents and removes any residual bacteria.
You will have peace of mind knowing that Invisalign is BPA-free.
Conventional metal braces can often trap food in its brackets or hard to reach places in the mouth, resulting in patients having to perform a more careful oral cleaning during treatment. Invisalign is built to be removable, which makes it easier for patients to enjoy certain foods or drinks as they can easily remove the aligners before eating hard candy or drinking coffee.
Unlike conventional braces, you can also remove Invisalign aligners on special occasions or while taking pictures and even when you do wear the aligners, they are clear, making them less noticeable than metal braces. Just make sure to reinsert the aligners in place as it can take longer to align teeth if the aligners are constantly being removed.
