Why is Invisalign a Popular Orthodontic Treatment?
Invisalign is one of the most popular orthodontic treatments for teens and adults today. Our orthodontist in Rocklin can use Invisalign to straighten and correct a variety of misalignment issues and crooked, crowded or widely spaced teeth.
One of the top concerns for patients who need orthodontic treatment is comfort. Invisalign uses plastic aligners that are smooth and easy to wear. Although some patients can experience an initial adjustment period in which they must adapt to the feel of the trays, most of our patients really appreciate the fact that the aligners can be slipped in and out with ease and have no irritating brackets or metal parts to rub against the sensitive oral tissues.
Another major benefit of Invisalign is the appearance of them. Braces can be quite obvious and can detract from the beauty of a smile. Some patients prefer a more private orthodontic experience. Invisalign aligners are clear and practically invisible when worn. This means that no one besides the patient ever has to know that he or she is undergoing treatment.
Finally, Invisalign allows you to keep your teeth sparkling clean without lengthy processes or routines. There are no extra parts to clean: You simply slip out the aligners, enjoy your meal and then brush and floss thoroughly before replacing your trays.
