Are your teeth as straight as you’d like them to be? If you didn’t have access to orthodontia in your youth, the answer is probably no. You might think that because you’re an adult now, you’ll just have to accept your crooked teeth (either that or walk around with traditional braces for a few years). Well thanks to Invisalign, you’ve got another option! So what are Invisalign braces, and are they right for you? The expert dentists and hygienists at ZDental have got the scoop on Invisalign, so read on to find out more!

What are Invisalign Braces?

Invisalign is a teeth-straightening system that utilizes custom fit aligners made from a flexible, clear plastic. The plastic used to make your aligners is made from an FDA-approved thermoplastic material called SmartTrack, which is certified to be free from BPA, BPS, Latex, or Gluten. Unlike traditional braces, they’re clear and fit snugly over your teeth so when you put them in, they’re nearly invisible. With Invisalign, you can feel confident going anywhere with your aligners in; whether you’re up close and personal or your friends are taking lots of pictures, nobody will notice you’re wearing them! The best part about Invisalign aligners – they’re removable so you can take them out when necessary. Traditional braces can’t say that!

As your teeth move, you’ll switch to the next aligner in the series until your teeth are perfect. Unlike traditional braces, there are no wires to tighten, and no metal to irritate your mouth.

Invisalign is perfect for people of all ages. Being a teen can be tough, and having to wear traditional braces doesn’t make life any easier for them. Invisalign’s aligners are practically invisible, meaning teens can feel confident attending social events or posting pics online. Adults with traditional braces sometimes find their colleagues, friends, and co-workers don’t take them seriously. With Invisalign, that problem is eliminated. Whether you’re going out on a big date or making an important presentation at work, Invisalign can continue to straighten your teeth while maintaining your normal appearance. No matter how old you are, Invisalign can be just what you’re looking for.
