Would you like to improve your smile but don't want to wear metal or ceramic braces? Invisalign offers a discreet alternative to braces. InvisalignYour Kenosha, WI, dentist, Dr. Todd Armstrong, can help you decide if Invisalign is right for you.

Invisalign eliminates wires

The Invisalign system uses a series of removable aligner trays to correct the alignment of your teeth. Trays are made of transparent plastic, making them practically invisible. Invisalign offers several important advantages, including:

  • Appearance: No one other than your Kenosha, WI, dentist needs to know that you're straightening your teeth when you choose Invisalign. Clear aligner trays fit your teeth snugly and don't draw attention to them.
  • Comfort: You'll never have to worry about cuts from brace wires or pain after adjustments. In fact, there are no adjustments with Invisalign. Your trays re-position your teeth by exerting gentle pressure on them. Each tray is designed to accomplish a specific goal. Trays are worn for up to two weeks before being replaced with the next set in the series.
  • Versatility: Invisalign is effective in treating orthodontic problems in children, teens, and adults. If you're an adult, you may only need to wear your trays for as little as a year in some cases.
  • Effectiveness: Invisalign treatment is just as effective as braces in correcting mild to moderate bite problems. (If you have a severe or complicated bite problem, you may need to wear metal braces.) The Invisalign system offers excellent results for underbites, overbites, crossbites and open bites.
  • No Limitations: Food restrictions are unnecessary with Invisalign, as you'll remove your aligner trays when you eat. Raw carrots, popcorn, gum and other foods that are off-limits to people who wear braces won't be a problem for you.
  • Convenience: Invisalign aligners are designed to be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day. If you're planning a special evening out or have a sports practice or game, you can remove your aligners while you participate in the activity or sport.
