What Are the Benefits of Invisalign®?

Pittsburgh Invisalign DentistIf you would like to straighten crooked teeth but don’t want to deal with the hassles associated with metal braces, then you may want to consider Invisalign®. Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional orthodontics that uses a series of clear, removable plastic aligners to gradually straighten your teeth over time.

Each Invisalign aligner is worn for two weeks. You then move to the next aligner in the series and continue this process until your teeth have reached their optimal position.

You can experience many benefits from choosing Invisalign as your orthodontics treatment method. The greatest benefit is the discreteness of the treatment. Since your Invisalign aligners are clear, they will be virtually undetectable to others. This makes Invisalign a preferred orthodontics treatment for adults who don’t want to have an unsightly mouth full of metal for several years.

Other benefits of Invisalign include:

  • Customizable treatment – Dr. Quartuccio and Dr. Frye will provide you with a custom-made set of aligners in order to ensure your treatment addresses your unique orthodontic issues.
  • Improved comfort – Your Invisalign aligners are made out of smooth, form-fitting plastic that won’t irritate your mouth and gums the way metal braces do. You also won’t experience the painful tightening sessions associated with traditional braces.
  • Removable – Remove your aligners while eating and brushing your teeth. This not only allows you to eat all of your favorite foods whenever you like, but it improves the effectiveness of your oral hygiene practices.
  • Fewer dental visits – There’s no need to regularly tighten brackets and wires. This means you’ll be able to complete your treatment with fewer visits to our Pittsburgh dental office.
