Older teen and adult patients who exhibit malocclusion are often motivated to seek treatment by the visual effects of crooked teeth. When one or more teeth aren’t aligned properly, a patient’s entire smile can seem odd and off-balanced. Unfortunately, some patients decide to neglect orthodontic treatment due to the metal brackets and wires that many of them believe are inevitable. Your Beverly Hills orthodontist, Dr. David Alpan, offers a wide variety of discreet orthodontic options for image-conscious patients, including Invisalign clear braces, which don’t require brackets and wires at all.
About Invisalign Clear Braces
Invisalign clear braces aren’t what most people consider braces. They don’t consist of brackets and wires, instead using a series of clear acrylic aligners that are designed to gently force teeth into their optimal positions. The aligners are changed every couple of weeks, and each new aligner moves teeth closer to their goals than the previous one. By utilizing plastic aligners instead of metal components bonded to teeth, clear braces provide the utmost discretion and convenience.
The clear plastic used to craft Invisalign’s clear aligners makes them virtually undetectable while in place. Each aligner is custom-designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth, so there is no movement to give away the aligner’s presence. If you have a business meeting, social engagement, or other important function, you can temporarily remove the aligners.
The ability to remove Invisalign’s aligners is a vital aspect for more than just discretion. Patients with traditional braces must modify their daily eating and hygiene habits to accommodate the obstruction. By removing their aligners, patients with Invisalign clear braces can brush their teeth and enjoy their meals just as before, so long as they wear the aligners for the prescribed amount of time each day.
