The aligners are carefully custom-made to suit your needs. Our dentist at Longwood Family Dentistry will guide you through the process of making your aligners and answer any questions you may have during the initial appointment.
One of the biggest factors that deter people from choosing braces is that metal brackets often stand out. Many may feel shy or self-conscious of their teeth with metal brackets and feel it may attract unwanted attention to them.
Invisalign, however, is virtually invisible. Made of a clear material, it easily blends in with your natural teeth and doesn’t stand out the way conventional braces do, making them an ideal choice for those who prefer a low-profile treatment.
Treatment time varies from patient to patient depending on the severity of their misalignment. Talk to our dentist to find out how long this process will take in your specific case.
The clear and smooth material makes it a comfortable choice. With no metal rubbing against your inner cheeks or lips, the feeling is very different than wearing conventional metal braces.
Conventional metal braces can often trap food in its brackets or hard to reach places in the mouth, requiring a more careful oral cleaning during treatment. Invisalign is built to be removable, which makes it easier to enjoy certain foods or drinks. Unlike conventional braces, you can also remove Invisalign aligners on a special occasions or while taking pictures, and even when you do wear the aligners, they are clear, making them less noticeable than metal braces.
