For many years, braces were the preferred solution for straightening crooked and misaligned teeth. Crooked teeth, or teeth that are improperly aligned, are unsightly and they make proper oral hygiene difficult. New York Invisalign is free from brackets and wires. Invisalign is the clear option, allowing you to work, socialize, and eat without any concerns, all the while straightening your teeth and giving you a perfect smile. As well as being invisible, Invisalign gives the wearer other important benefits.
Invisalign aligners are made from a unique thermoplastic that is FDA approved and is free from any BPA, BPS, latex or gluten. The material is transparent and flexible. As such, wearing Invisalign does not detract from your appearance.
Invisalign aligners are custom made. They are very smooth, making them far more comfortable than traditional metal braces, which can abrade the gums and cheeks. Each tray in the series is made to fit perfectly over the teeth as they are repositioned.
Maintain Better Dental Hygiene
Invisalign aligners are removable. Traditional braces are not. Because they can be removed, it is far easier to brush and floss. The aligners can be cleaned using your conventional toothpaste and brush. It is extremely important that you maintain healthy teeth and gums during the tooth straightening process.
By design, conventional metal braces have protruding brackets and wires that can easily scratch the gums and inner cheeks. For anyone involved in sports, youngsters included, being able to remove the aligners eliminates potential oral damage. Those who wear Invisalign can carry on with their normal activities, while at the same time, straighten their teeth.
Eat What You Want
When wearing conventional braces, there are restrictions on what you can eat. Food, which is hard, sticky, or chewy, is unacceptable. Food restrictions are not a problem to people straightening their teeth with Invisalign. Remove the aligner, eat what you want, and replace it after you have finished your meal.
