Here’s what you should know about getting Invisalign treatment.

Most people have teeth that are slightly out-of-place or crooked. This is a fairly common problem. Of course, if you are looking to correct these problems our Berkley, MI, dentist Dr. Julie Forte offers a subtle and nearly invisible set of braces that can fix your smile and help you feel more confident. Invisalign offers the same results as traditional braces, but you never have to sport metal on your teeth. Instead, Invisalign uses custom-fitted plastic aligners.

Here are the top three benefits of getting invisible braces from our Berkley, MI, dental team,

You can’t see them

There is a reason people call them invisible braces. That’s because you can’t really see the clear, plastic aligners when you put them on. This makes it easier for our older teen and adult patients to feel more confident when wearing their Invisalign aligners, even when speaking to others. Knowing that others won’t immediately notice your treatment can be a major source of comfort.

You can eat what you want

If you’ve been considering other orthodontic options then you probably know that certain types of braces require you to avoid certain foods, but not with Invisalign. All you have to do is simply remove your aligners prior to eating, brushing, flossing and even drinking (unless you’re drinking water) and then brush your teeth thoroughly afterward before putting your aligners back on.

It’s a very comfortable treatment

Compared to other orthodontic options, Invisalign is a winner because it is designed with your comfort in mind. Each aligner is custom-fitted to your mouth, which means that they fit perfectly over your upper and/or lower teeth. While the aligners will fit snug around your teeth they shouldn’t be too tight or uncomfortable. Plus, the aligners are smoothed at the edges to prevent sore gums and irritation.
