Clear Invisalign braces are the ideal solution if you don't like the way metal braces look, but this innovative brace system provides invisalignseveral other advantages. Deborah Young Makerson, DMD, PC, and Reginald Makerson, DDS, who offer Invisalign in the Augusta area, explain how clear braces can improve your appearance.

Invisalign moves teeth without brackets or wires

When you wear traditional braces, wires are connected to brackets attached to your teeth. Tightening the wires every four to six weeks moves your teeth into the correct position. The Invisalign brace system aligns your teeth without using brackets or wires. Instead, you wear a series of clear, removable aligner trays that gradually reposition your teeth. Every two weeks, you open a new set of trays.

Invisalign is the perfect choice for your lifestyle

Although Invisalign braces are practically invisible, there may still be times that your life would be a little easier if you weren't wearing them. One of the advantages of Invisalign is the ability to easily remove the trays if you'll be playing in sports or attending a special event. After the event or game, just pop the aligners back in your mouth and resume your treatment.

Invisalign makes eating and oral hygiene easy

Chewing gum, popcorn, whole apples and other foods are off limits if you wear metal braces because these foods can either get caught in your wires or break them. Since you remove your Invisalign aligners to eat, you can continue to enjoy all of your favorite foods. Cleaning around wires and brackets can be difficult if you wear traditional braces, but if you miss a spot, cavity-causing plaque can build up on your teeth. Thanks to the Invisalign system's removable aligners, brushing and flossing is just as quick and easy as it was before you started treatment.
