Invisalign Invisible Braces Here In Salt Lake City
If you’ve thought about straightening your teeth with braces, you might have heard about Invisalign. Have you wondered, “What is Invisalign and how is it different than other braces systems?”
Those are excellent questions, and here’s one more: are Invisalign braces the right option for you? To figure that out, let’s explore what Invisalign is.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a technologically advanced braces system. It uses customized aligner trays to gradually straighten your teeth with consistent pressure. You can wear these trays most of the time, only removing them during meals or when cleaning your teeth.
The aligner trays are made of a material that is practically invisible. Since they’re customized to fit closely over your teeth, many people won’t even be able to see you’re wearing them—unless you tell them!
How Does Invisalign Compare to Metal Braces?
We can compare Invisalign clear braces with metal braces in a few different ways, and Invisalign seems to keep winning.
- Visibility: Since Invisalign trays are clear, people won’t see them when you smile, laugh, or pose for a picture. Traditional metal braces, though, are extremely visible and obtrusive.
- Convenience: It’s extremely easy to clean your teeth when using the Invisalign braces system, because you just remove the trays before you brush and floss. Metal braces are very difficult to clean around.
- Comfort: When you put in a new set of Invisalign trays, they might cause slight discomfort. Tightening the wires of metal braces, though, can cause a lot of pain.
- Speed: Many of our patients get faster results from Invisalign than they would have gotten from metal braces.
We often find that Invisalign invisible braces are the best choice for many of our patients. Dr. Blackwood will partner with you, though, to advise you on what is right for you specifically. At your first consultation, you can ask him a lot of questions to help you make a good decision.
