Orthodontics is becoming easier and more convenient than ever. Thanks to Invisalign, you might not have to spend two years in braces. Since the company’s inception in 1997, Invisalign has slowly gained popularity among dentists, orthodontists and patients.

What is Invisalign, exactly? It’s composed of clear and thin custom-made thermoplastic trays designed to straighten your teeth and bite. Invisalign typically takes only six to eighteen months to work its magic as opposed to two years with braces. These clear aligners are discrete and comfortable. Once you adjust to wearing them, you won’t have to worry about it impairing your speaking abilities or your appearance in any way. They’re easy to remove while eating or brushing your teeth. This promotes better oral health and frees you up to eat most anything without fear of breaking a wire or bracket.

Certain dental issues can only be corrected through braces. These include bridgework, teeth that need to move vertically, back tooth bite issues, or canine premolar issues. You might also consider braces if you or your child would not likely have the discipline to keep the Invisalign trays in for 22 hours or more every day.
