Does Invisalign Hurt?

Most patients report feeling little to no discomfort during their Invisalign treatment. Aligners are made from a clear hard -soft plastic that reduces soft tissue irritation and protects your gums from cuts often associated with metal braces.

Advantages Of Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

o  Appearance

o    Metal braces can cause the appearance of the mouth to be unattractive, as though it is filled with awkward chunks of unsightly metal.  They are noticeable, especially on an adult, and can get food caught in them without the wearer even being aware of it.  Invisalign® clear braces are barely noticeable.  They look very much as though the person wearing them is not wearing braces at all.

o  Comfort

o    Invisalign® clear braces are removable.  If for any reason, the wearer of teeth aligners wishes to remove them for brief periods of time (to eat or drink), he or she may easily do so. Traditional braces are not removable once placed.

o  Length Of Treatment

o    Someone who wears metal braces might expect the treatment to take as long as 5 years.  Invisalign® can take from only one year to a year and a half to work its magic and straighten your teeth.
