Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to move teeth into place gradually. At Las Vegas Braces, Invisalign aligners are custom-made from BPA-free plastic for your unique smile. These aligners are made of smooth, clear plastic, making them virtually invisible. Invisalign aligners are removable, so patients can continue to eat their favorite foods and brush and floss normally. Invisalign aligners are comfortable and don’t cause irritation or mouth sores like other braces.
Life with Invisalign Braces
While Invisalign braces are just as effective as traditional braces, many patients prefer the transparent aligner system for its convenience. Invisalign treatment allows you to straighten your teeth without interrupting your life.
Aligners are easy to take out before meals, so you can eat anything you like without worrying about damaging your braces. The aligners are also discreet and easy to keep clean. Brush and floss as expected, and your aligners will take care of the rest.
Invisalign vs. Braces
Invisalign and braces are both great options for aligning your teeth. Invisalign uses a series of custom-made, clear aligners to shift your teeth into place gradually. Each aligner is required to be worn for around two weeks. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually shift into place.
Braces use wires, brackets, and rubber bands to shift your teeth into place. The brackets are placed on your teeth, and the archwire is threaded through. The wire is secured using rubber bands, which apply pressure to move your teeth into position.
While both treatment options are effective, we offer Invisalign to many patients because it is less visible and more comfortable. Invisalign is also removable, so you can eat, clean your teeth, and floss normally.
Who Is a Suitable Candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign is an excellent treatment for many patients. Invisalign is a good option for adults, teens, and patients of all ages. Generally speaking, Invisalign is a good option for patients who want to straighten their teeth without the look of conventional metal braces. Invisalign is also a good option for patients who play contact sports because Invisalign aligners are removable. If your orthodontic problems include crooked teeth, gaps, or crowded teeth, Invisalign could be your best option. However, if your orthodontic issues have severely crooked teeth, severely gapped teeth, or severely crowded teeth, Invisalign may not be the best option.
