Louisville, KY

For decades, if you wanted straighter teeth, braces were the only option. Times have changed, science has evolved and, today, you can get the straighter smile you always wanted without braces. Invisalign makes it possible. Invisalign is a method of aligner therapy. The aligners fit snugly over your teeth and re-align them through the application of gentle pressure. Every couple of weeks, you return to your dentist for a new set of aligners until the course of treatment is complete. Today on the blog, we detail some of the benefits of using Invisalign to get straighter teeth in Louisville.

5 Benefits of Invisalign

Transparency: The aligners themselves are clear and almost undetectable when worn. This is a great option, especially for adults who seek orthodontic treatment and might be concerned with the social stigma from wearing braces in that stage of life.

  • Comfort: The plastic aligners are smooth, which means they won’t poke or irritate the soft tissues of the mouth the way that braces can. Plus, we customize the aligner trays for each Invisalign patient, making for a snug, effective and comfortable fit.
  • Removable: You can take out the trays when you eat or perform your oral care routine. This means you don’t have to restrict your nutritional choices; patients with braces have to stay from especially chewy or crunchy foods. It also makes your teeth easier to clean, since you can remove the aligners and don’t have to navigate around the brackets and wires of braces when you brush. It is important to remember, though, that you need to wear the aligners for about 22 hours each day for Invisalign to be effective.
  • Treatment time – Although the needs of each patient vary, the typical course of treatment with Invisalign lasts between 12 and 18 months. By contrast, many orthodontic patients who straighten their teeth with braces wear the braces for two years or longer.
  • Satisfaction – Patients who receive Invisalign have a success rate of 95%, which is significantly higher than that for those patients who seek orthodontic treatment through braces.
