Our smiles are just as expressive as our eyes, and our teeth are one of the first things we notice when we meet a person. If you can’t sport a wide smile with confidence, it’s all too easy to feel self-conscious.
Thankfully, there are various ways to improve our smiles, one of which are traditional braces involving metal or ceramic brackets and metal wires. The wires gets adjusted periodically to correct teeth misalignment and straighten teeth. Apart from the obvious aesthetic benefits, well-aligned teeth often make effective oral hygiene easier hence preventing tooth decay and gum disease. The downside is, braces can be quite a hassle to wear. They are easily noticeable, it is difficult to clean around the wires and brackets, and they can be rather uncomfortable.
If you’re looking for an alternative to braces, one option is Invisalign. Invisalign consists of a series of BPA-free, clear plastic aligners that are worn over teeth to gently move them to the desired position. You can easily remove the clear aligners for brief periods of time to eat or drink, and to brush and floss your teeth. They are designed to be almost invisible and seamless from the advanced 3D-printing technology. The aligner material is thin and unobtrusive while having strong and flexible properties so they can straighten teeth effectively and at the same time being very comfortable to wear.
