Many people choose to invest in their health and fitness in the New Year, but another way to boost your self-confidence is with a happy and healthy smile. With Invisalign technology, a new smile is easier to achieve than ever with discreet, efficient aligners. Love your smile again by achieving the straight teeth of your dreams! In this blog post, we will discuss Invisalign technology and all the benefits offered by this revolutionary system.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign utilizes a system of custom aligners to improve the overall appearance of teeth. Treatments are designed to straighten teeth to improve both appearance and function and can fix certain bite issues. Each set of discrete, clear plastic aligners is custom made to be worn 24/7 except while eating or brushing teeth. In general, these treatments require 6-12 months for teeth to be straightened. Invisalign technology is recommended for individuals without complex orthodontia needs and is the perfect solution for those looking to simply straighten teeth. Easily achieve a straighter smile without the hassle of traditional metal braces.  

Benefits of Invisalign


One of the most popular benefits associated with Invisalign treatments are the discrete, clear aligners. These devices are designed to easily fit over teeth without affecting speech or smiles. The clear plastic makes them virtually invisible, allowing you to straighten teeth without traditional and less subtle metal braces. Many people prefer this aesthetic to allow them to achieve the smile of their dreams without affecting the appearance of their teeth. 

Teeth Easy to Clean

Traditional metal braces make it extremely difficult to properly clean teeth during treatment. Flossing and brushing are disrupted by the hardware and food can easily get stuck, increasing the chances of developing a cavity. Invisalign custom aligners can be completely removed during tooth brushing, allowing you to brush, floss and rinse normally. This decreases the likelihood of cavities and other dental issues during your treatment. 

Reduced Pain

Although most dental work will result in some degree of pain, Invisalign aligners are known to decrease the level of discomfort associated with traditional metal braces. There will likely still be some level of discomfort during the adjustment phase when you advance to a new aligner; however, the overall level of pain dissipates once teeth adjust.
