Five Surprising Invisalign Facts

Did you know that traditional metal braces aren’t the only way to get straighter teeth? That’s where Invisalign comes in- these invisible braces are simply clear plastic aligners that fit over your teeth and gradually work towards improving their alignment. Also read our Invisalign 101 blog to learn more about the process.

Five Surprising Invisalign Facts:

  1. You can still eat your favourite foods: Invisalign aligners are removable, unlike traditional braces, so you take them out before meals and place them back in after. Popcorn, carrots, and apples- you can have them all!

  2. Results can be much faster than traditional braces: You can achieve a straighter smile by properly following your aligner tray schedule. Every week or so, you wear a new aligner that then shift your teeth. This should cut down on to almost half the time it takes to achieve the same results with traditional braces.

  3. Even if you’ve worn braces before, Invisalign still works: Had braces when you were a teen but your teeth have since shifted? Invisalign is a great option to get them realigned and staying that way!

  4. Invisalign is great for adults and teens: Though Invisalign won’t be a suitable option for every dental alignment issue, it is an option for those seeking mild to moderate straightening. We discuss this further in our blog “Is Invisalign Appropriate for Teens”

  5. It’s affordable: Invisalign is a comparable price point to traditional braces. And we’re here to help work out a plan that works for your family’s budget.
