If you’re considering orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth, then you’ve probably heard about Invisalign treatment – a very popular alternative to modern metal or ceramic braces. Invisalign treatment uses clear aligners made of smooth SmartTrak® material to gently move your teeth into position over time. Here are five quick facts that just might convince you to have this innovative treatment!

Invisalign Uses A Special Type Of Plastic

It’s called SmartTrack and it’s so unique, it’s only used in Invisalign clear aligners. SmartTrack is designed to provide gentle but continual pressure on your teeth, helping them move toward alignment without abrupt tightening, as is common with traditional braces. The smooth surface lets you slip the aligners on and off with ease, while still providing a secure fit. Plus, it doesn’t contain any BPA, BPS, latex or gluten.

Invisalign Can Treat Lots Of Alignment Problems

As with modern braces, Invisalign clear aligners can be used to treat overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites, as well as gaps and spacing problems.

Yes, It’s Really Invisible

Invisalign treatment gets its name from its most noticeable feature: the clear aligners. These aligners are hard to detect. They’re the go-to solution for lots of celebrities and public figures that want to enjoy straighter teeth. You’d have to get really close and stare at someone’s teeth to tell if he or she is wearing a clear aligner.

You Won’t Need As Many Office Visits

With modern braces, you’ll need regular office visits to have your wires and brackets tightened and adjusted. That’s the key to keeping your teeth moving toward alignment. And once you adjust to the new level of tension in your wires, it’s time to go back and have them tightened again.
