For those that have crooked teeth or a misaligned bite, traditional braces are not the only option. 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. Then Dr. Ronald Champion will give you the new set so you can progress to the next stage of your treatment.
Invisalign has several advantages over braces. While traditional braces require brackets and wires that can mar the appearance of your smile, Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually invisible. The wires of braces can poke the inside of your cheeks and mouth, causing irritation and discomfort. Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic. Brushing and flossing can be difficult with braces, but Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can easily care for your smile. Those who wear braces should not have certain foods, like bubble gum, popcorn, and sticky foods. However, with removable Invisalign aligners, you can continue to eat your favorite foods.
