Traditional braces are not the only option for those that have crooked teeth or a misaligned bite. If you would like to straighten your teeth without the use of metal brackets and wires, consider Invisalign® in Modesto, California. Invisalign is a series of clear, comfortable, removable aligners that straighten the teeth over time. Each set of aligners is worn on the teeth for about two weeks.
Invisalign has several benefits over braces. Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually invisible, as opposed to traditional braces that require brackets and wires that can mar the beauty of your smile. The wires of braces can poke the inside of your cheeks and mouth, causing irritation. Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic. Brushing and flossing can be difficult with braces, but Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss as usual. Those who wear braces cannot have certain foods, like bubble gum, popcorn, and sticky foods. However, with removable Invisalign aligners, you can continue to eat your favorite foods.
