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 Carlsbad, California. Invisalign is a series of clear, comfortable, removable aligners that straighten the teeth over a period of time. Each set of aligners is worn on the teeth for about two weeks.
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. Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic. Brushing and flossing can be difficult with braces. However, Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss as usual. Bubble gum, popcorn, and sticky foods are among the foods that those with braces cannot have. However, with removable Invisalign aligners, you can continue to eat what you like.
