For those that have crooked teeth or a misaligned bite, traditional braces are not the only option. If you would like to straighten your teeth without the use of metal brackets and wires, consider Invisalign® in New York, New York. Invisalign is a series of removable, clear, comfortable aligners that straighten the teeth over time. Each set of aligners is worn on the teeth for about two weeks.
Invisalign has several advantages over traditional braces. While braces require brackets and wires that can mar the appearance of your smile, Invisalign aligners are clear and nearly invisible. Most people won’t even realize that you are straightening your smile. The wires of braces can poke the inside of your cheeks and mouth, causing tenderness. Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic. Brushing and flossing can be difficult with braces, but Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss as usual. Those who wear braces cannot have certain foods, like popcorn, sticky foods, and bubble gum. However, with removable Invisalign aligners, you can continue to eat your favorite foods.
