Why InvisalignⓇ Remains So Popular

Straight teeth are a key part of a beautiful smile. They’re also important for a properly balanced bite. When you have crooked teeth, you may need orthodontic treatment to protect and preserve your smile. Traditional braces are obvious and may not appeal to you, but with InvisalignⓇ clear aligners, you can enjoy a winning smile without choosing between confidence and straight teeth.

Here at Palmieri Dentistry in Mooresville, North Carolina, Dr. Roberto Palmieri understands your desire for a confidence-building smile. InvisalignⓇ is a popular choice with many of our patients, and it’s not surprising when we consider the many advantages of clear aligners.

How InvisalignⓇ works

Teeth straightening with InvisalignⓇ involves a series of clear plastic aligners that are designed to fit snugly over your teeth. Depending on the severity of your case, you’ll get around 20-30 sets of customized aligners, each of which you’ll wear for two weeks at a time.

The aligners are designed to progressively move your teeth into a straighter alignment. Over time, you’ll achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

Let’s take a look at some reasons why this orthodontic treatment is still a popular choice among both teens and adults.

InvisalignⓇ aligners are almost invisible

The clear aligners are made from a biocompatible acrylic for a discrete look. They’re designed according to precise measurements of your smile. Each aligner fits snugly over your teeth, so they don’t move when you speak.

The virtually invisible acrylic ensures your aligners are barely noticeable, which means you can remain confident and metal free throughout your treatment.

The aligners are easy to clean

Traditional braces are made up of wires and brackets that adhere to the teeth and make cleaning your teeth a cumbersome task. You also need to use special tools to properly clean your teeth and braces. With InvisalignⓇ, you simply take out your aligners to brush and floss.

InvisalignⓇ is a comfortable orthodontic option

Traditional metal braces and lingual braces are affixed to your teeth. The wires guide your teeth into position, often rubbing and scratching your tongue and the soft tissues inside of your mouth. However, InvisalignⓇ aligners are made of clear, smooth plastic designed especially for the mouth. That means there’s no rubbing or chafing when you wear them.

InvisalignⓇ provides precise, controlled treatment

Invisalign offers almost instant gratification. The teeth start to move immediately, which means you’ll notice the change in alignment soon after starting your treatment. The pressure from the InvisalignⓇ aligners provides regulated and precise movements for superior control over how and when your teeth shift into a straighter position.

The aligners are removable

Using InvisalignⓇ is easy and convenient because you can take your aligners out to eat and drink, and when you brush and floss. You can even take your aligners out to play an instrument, play a sport, or enjoy a night out. But for your treatment to work properly, you should wear your aligners for about 22 hours every day.

There’s no need to ditch your favorite foods

When you wear braces, you need to adjust your eating habits and avoid foods that are especially hard, crunchy, and sticky. In addition to being removable and invisible, InvisalignⓇ treatment means not having to give up your favorite foods. There’s no need to plan meals around foods that won’t get stuck in wires and brackets, so you can eat what you want.
