For some children, the idea of braces can be very exciting! It is sometimes viewed as a rite of passage. But what happens if you desire straighter teeth but don’t find the idea of bright green braces appealing – at all.
It’s not the end of the road, braces are not the only solution to getting straighter teeth, there are many options out there. If you are looking to straighten your teeth with an inconspicuous treatment method, cue invisible aligners.
Aligners can be used as a means to straighten your teeth. Think of invisible aligners as thin mouth guards. They are custom made to fit your teeth and are transparent. They are to be worn night and day and can be removed when eating/drinking. The material used to make clear aligners is BPA free and does not contain any harmful chemicals, which means that it is irritant free and comfortable to wear on a day to day basis. Since these clear aligners are virtually invisible, they are particularly favored by adults who are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Transparent aligners work through a series of trays that gradually shift your teeth into the correct place. Trays are replaced roughly every two weeks, although this does vary from patient to patient. Each tray that you will be given will be made slightly straighter than the previous one so that your teeth continue to become straighter with each aligner. Throughout your treatment, your teeth will gradually begin to shift until they reach their correct position. Many people prefer transparent aligners because they are comfortable since they are custom made just for you. The primary appeal of invisible aligners is that they allow for you to straighten your teeth discreetly, yet effectively.
