Comfort and aesthetic appeal
With Invisalign, gentle pressure from the clear plastic trays, called aligners, gradually guides your teeth where they need to be. To continue the process, the aligner you've worn for a few weeks is discarded and you begin wearing another one. As these transparent aligners fit snugly against your teeth, wearing them won't be noticeable to anyone but you. No worries of an errant wire poking your cheek or the noticeable appearance of traditional metal braces.
Ease of eating and cleaning
The aligners are easily removed so you can eat as you normally would, without having to alter your diet as traditional braces often require. This also allows for ease of cleaning both your teeth and your aligners; food can't get caught anywhere and you won't need any special instruments to remove it. However, for the best and accurate results, our Hillsborough, NJ, dentist recommends wearing your aligners at least 20 hours a day, including while you sleep. This is not only to ensure you stay on schedule, but also to prevent your aligners from being misplaced or lost, disrupting the process and potentially costing extra to resolve.
All in all, Invisalign offers an unprecedented approach to wearing braces that combines comfort and aesthetics. To learn more, or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Albert Internoscia and his team of dentists at Towne Centre Family Dental in Hillsborough, NJ, call (908) 874-4555 today.
