Two things come to mind when you hear Invisalign. For one, you know that these aligners are practically undetectable. This means that you can realign your teeth without anyone ever knowing that you had some type of braces on. The other thing that most people know about Invisalign is that they are a little more expensive than regular braces. The truth is that this option can be a little more expensive and does require a few more trips to the dentist to get an adjusted pair of aligners, but the benefits outweigh the costs and inconvenience. The aligners have to be replaced every two weeks until the process is complete.
It should be noted that Invisalign may not work for severe cases, but this is something that we can help you find out. One aspect that many people love about Invisalign is that they are completely removable as opposed to braces. Braces cannot be removed and require a lot of care, including more cleaning to ensure that food or bacteria does not get stuck in the braces. You can remove the aligners when you go to sleep, when you are about to eat, or drink something. Aligners can be cleaned with a cleaning solution to make sure that any residue is removed before you use them again.
