4 Facts About Invisalign That May Surprise You

Invisalign is changing the way adults think about straightening their teeth. Instead of wearing embarrassing metal brackets and wires on their teeth, Invisalign delivers excellent results and a straighter smile with clear plastic aligners.  

That's right! Clear aligners are hardly visible, so no one will ever notice that you're straightening your teeth.

Here are some other benefits that Invisalign in Gaithersburg, MD offers, and some you might find surprising.

#1 Invisalign Can Correct Some Bite Issues

Correcting your bite can alleviate tooth clenching and grinding (bruxism), frequent headaches, and painful jaw joint issues. Invisalign can correct some bite issues like:

  • Crossbites
  • Open bites
  • Overbites
  • Underbites

#2 Invisalign Makes Home Care Easier

When your teeth are correctly aligned, they're easier to brush and floss. In addition, teeth that are easier to clean help you avoid gum disease, tooth decay, and cavities.

During your treatment with Invisalign, you'll be able to remove your aligners for brushing and flossing. You'll find this is much easier than trying to navigate a toothbrush and floss around brackets and wires.

#3 You Can Enjoy the Foods You Love During Your Treatment

Removable aligners also make it easy to enjoy the foods you love throughout your treatment. There are no food restrictions with Invisalign like there are with braces.

#4 Invisalign Treatment Is Efficient and Discreet

Besides being virtually invisible, Invisalign is also efficient. Depending on your specific needs, your dentist can complete most Invisalign cases in 12 to 18 months. You'll also be able to change your aligners out at home every two weeks, which means fewer visits to your dentist during your treatment and less time out of your busy schedule during your treatment.
