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 Avon, Sandusky, and Wadsworth, Ohio. Invisalign is a series of clear, comfortable, removable aligners that straighten the teeth over time. The aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day. Each set of aligners is used on the teeth for about two weeks.
Invisalign has several advantages over braces. While traditional braces require brackets and wires that can mar the appearance of your smile, Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually invisible. The wires of braces can poke the inside of your cheeks and mouth, causing irritation. The plastic of Invisalign aligners is smooth and comfortable. 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, including bubble gum, popcorn, and sticky foods. However, those who straighten with Invisalign can eat what they like.
