In recent years, the use of clear aligners like Invisalign® has greatly increased. This is largely due to their convenience and cosmetic qualities. They have become especially popular among adults who want straighter teeth without wanting to have traditional metal braces installed.
Invisalign can be used to correct many of the issues that braces address, including crowded or crooked teeth, unseemly gaps between teeth, and even certain bite problems. It works by using a series of thin, clear aligners custom made for you. They are each designed with the aid of state-of-the-art computer technology, and incrementally shift your teeth into their ideal position.
The complaint many people have about traditional metal braces is that they are both inconvenient and unattractive. Food is easily caught in the various wires and brackets, and they are difficult to properly clean. These are more reasons why more and more people are now choosing to use Invisalign. Their clear aligners are quite discreet. They are barely noticeable when they are being worn. They are also removable, so you can be take them out for eating and cleaning the mouth.
