You may be familiar with the ugly metal braces that many teenagers wear to straighten out their teeth. They are often the source of social embarrassment and teasing, to the point that many people prefer to avoid them! In fact, you may have missed out on braces as a child either because your family couldn’t afford it, or because you avoided having them fitted. If this sounds like you, the good news is that braces technology has significantly improved!
Now You See Me, Now You Don’t!
If you are an adult and you want your teeth straightened, you will be glad to hear about a revolutionary new product called Invisalign braces. Rather than the visible metal hooks, wires, and brackets of traditional metal braces, Invisalign braces use a BPA-free, high grade plastic that is durable and fits over the teeth in order to align them.
Invisalign technology provides the following benefits:
- Invisible: Due to the fact that these braces are made of a clear and durable BPA-free plastic, they are practically invisible when worn over the teeth! This means that anyone can wear them without fearing social embarrassment or isolation.
- Removable: Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign braces are actually removable at any time. One certainly has to wear them for the majority of the day, but their removability means that they can be taken out to be cleaned, and can also be removed before meals so that food particles do not get stuck in and around them.
- No irritation: Metal braces are full of wires and other things that irritate the delicate parts of the mouth. By contrast, Invisalign does not irritate these areas of the mouth.
