Invisalign clear braces are an increasingly popular option in orthodontics. They do an excellent job in bringing teeth into proper alignment, but are so discreet that some people call them invisible. Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry in Royal Oak offers these alternatives to traditional braces.
Unlike metal braces, Inviaslign clear braces have no wires, brackets or rubber bands. They are so subtle that people standing just a few feet away may not realize you’re wearing them.
They look a lot like an athlete’s mouth guard. The proper term for such braces is “aligner.” They are made of clear plastic and are worn over your teeth to gradually bring them into alignment.
One of the things that people like best about Invisalign clear braces is that they are removable. You can take them out at mealtime, and when you brush your teeth at night. You should wear them while you sleep, however. For the best results it’s recommended they be worn for at least twenty-two hours each day.
Invisalign clear braces are a great choice for those who want to straighten their teeth, but don’t want to wear traditional braces at school or work. They are not, however, for everyone. They are not good for patients who, for example, have severely rotated teeth.
