If you would like to straighten crooked teeth but prefer to avoid the hassles associated with traditional metal braces, then Invisalign may be a great option for you. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable plastic aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Each custom-made aligner is worn for approximately two weeks and will incrementally shift your teeth toward their desired position. You’ll then move onto the next aligner in the series until you’ve completed the treatment.
Due to the fact that the Invisalign aligners are clear, it has become a popular treatment option for many adults who would like straight teeth but want to avoid having an unsightly mouth of metal for two years. However, the benefits of Invisalign extend way beyond the discrete nature of your treatment.
When you choose Invisalign, you’ll also experience the following benefits:
- Comfort – The smooth plastic aligners are custom-fit to your mouth and won’t cause irritation the way metal braces do.
- Removable – Take your aligners out when you eat and brush your teeth, making oral hygiene practices easier and allowing you to eat all your favorite foods without concern.
- Customized treatment – Your series of Invisalign aligners is custom made to address the unique orthodontic issues you experience.
- Fewer dental visits – Invisalign only requires you to visit Dr. Frank for adjustments every 4-6 weeks, which is significantly less often than is required with traditional orthodontics.
For these reasons, many of our Hoboken area patients have been choosing Invisalign over traditional braces. Visit Dr. Frank to see if Invisalign is right for you.
