Invisalign: Why Choose Clear Braces?

In the past, we’ve talked extensively on this blog about conventional braces, the Damon™ system of braces, and even t Insignia™ Advanced Smile Design™ braces. However, we feel we haven’t shown enough love to all of our options for teeth realignment.

Because we want to do justice to each of the options we offer for braces, we’d like to spend today’s blog post focusing on Invisalign braces and the many benefits they offer to patients just like you. In particular, we’ll be focusing on what your experience with Invisalign might be like as well as what results you can expect when you choose Invisalign.

The Invisalign Process: Day-to-Day

When you choose to pursue Invisalign braces, your experience will be much different than those with conventional braces. As you might expect, the first and foremost of these differences is the fact that Invisalign braces are designed to be unobtrusive and difficult to spot. This is essentially what Invisalign braces are most famous for; the fact that you can  undergo teeth realignment treatment every day without having to wear bulky, difficult to maintain braces that don’t fit with your appearance or sense of style.

Moreover, Invisalign braces have yet another advantage that conventional braces don’t. Unlike conventional braces, Invisalign braces can be removed. In fact, Invisalign braces only need to be worn for 20-22 hours each day, meaning that you can take them out to eat and give your teeth some time to rest from the adjustment, unlike with conventional braces.

Invisalign Results: What to Expect

When you complete your treatment with Invisalign, you can expect some pretty stunning results. Though it might seem like results may not be as fruitful as conventional metal braces, Invisalign actually boasts a 96% success rate. Additionally, where conventional braces generally requires a minimum of 12 months (and maxing out at 24 months) to take effect, Invisalign usually takes 9 to 12 months. Conceivably, you could get fitted for Invisalign in January and have them off in time for Halloween.
