If you would like straighter teeth, but do not want to spend two years or more wearing metal braces, you may not have to. Thanks to Invisalign clear plastic aligners, many of our Geary Dentistry patients have straightened their teeth without anyone ever knowing they were wearing an orthodontic device.

Invisalign clear plastic aligners snap over your teeth and exert forces on them to gradually change your dental alignment. You can Invisalignswitch the aligners out every two weeks until your desired results are achieved. While you may have heard about Invisalign treatments in the past or viewed advertisements, here are five things many of our Brookfield Invisalign patients are surprised to learn.

1. You can eat any food you like with Invisalign.

Braces wearers are often limited in the foods they can eat, including avoiding corn, nuts, chips and raw carrots. Because Invisalign aligners are removable, you can enjoy any food you like by snapping off your aligners (just don’t forget to put them back on after you eat!).

2. Invisalign can straighten the teeth more quickly than braces.

While you must be diligent about switching your aligners, Invisalign can often offer faster results than traditional metal braces. This is because adjustments are made on a twice-weekly basis instead of a six-week basis as metal braces are.

3. Invisalign is suitable for teenagers and adults.

Invisalign aligners aren’t just an adults-only alternative to braces, they also can straighten teenager’s teeth. While Invisalign won’t work on every dental alignment concern, the aligners can help some teenagers straighten mild to moderate dental alignment issues without the need for metal braces. Invisalign even offers an “Invisalign Teen” product that has a compliance indicator that fades with each wear to signify teens are wearing their aligner sets for an appropriate amount of time.

4. You can wear Invisalign if you’ve worn braces in the past.

Your teeth can shift over time, even if you have worn braces to straighten them. Many of our Brookfield Invisalign patients opt to wear Invisalign years after braces as a means to keep their teeth straight.

5. You can afford Invisalign.

Invisalign treatments are often comparable with the cost of wearing braces. In addition, they offer the added benefit of straightening your teeth without anyone ever knowing you are doing so. Our office can discuss payment plan options with you to ensure the process is affordable to you.
