5 Reasons to Love Invisalign®

It’s no secret that one of the main ingredients in a winning smile are straight teeth that exude great health and vitality. Unfortunately, only the lucky few naturally develop perfectly straight teeth, leaving the rest of us mere mortals to deal with any number of imperfections and misalignments. But thanks to InvisalignⓇ, the road to straight teeth is far smoother.

At Duval Orthodontics, under the expert direction of Dr. J.A. Duval, we offer a wide range of services that are designed to provide our clients in Albany and Warner Robins, Georgia, with smiles full of white, straight teeth. While we offer several different options when it comes to straightening your teeth, we’re pleased to include Invisalign, which offers several advantages over traditional methods.

Here’s a look at 5 reasons why you’ll love Invisalign.

1. A clear winner

Let’s start with the most obvious advantage of Invisalign — the nearly invisible aligners. With Invisalign, you don’t need cumbersome metal braces to move your teeth. Instead, clear aligners do the job just as well as metal, if not better in some cases.

The aligners are made from advanced materials that feature SmartTrack®, a patented material that guides your teeth gently, but firmly, into their desired positions. All you need to do is swap out the aligners every 1-2 weeks to keep your teeth moving in the right direction.

2. Go ahead, eat and brush

The second reason why you’ll love Invisalign is that the aligners are removable, which means you can take them out for eating and brushing. While we recommend that you wear your aligners for 22 hours a day, the ability to pop them out for eating and brushing ensures that your teeth continue to sparkle while they’re being straightened.

As well, if you have a special event, you can simply remove the aligners and enjoy yourself without being self-conscious about dental appliances.

3. A comfortable fit

Invisalign aligners are designed to fit comfortably over your teeth without irritating your gums. With metal braces, you may experience some irritation in the soft tissues inside your mouth as they rub against the sharp edges of the braces. Conversely, Invisalign aligners are soft, comfortable, and feature a smooth surface that won’t cause any damage to sensitive areas in your mouth, like the insides of your cheeks.

4. A high-tech approach

Invisalign is designed to provide you with a seamless process from start to finish. From the get go, we take painless, 3D digital scans of your teeth so that we can formulate the best plan of attack. There’s also a simulator that allows you to see your final results before you even get started, giving you a visual goal.

As you progress through your aligners, we can use the same technology to make any adjustments along the way, but our clients rarely need them since the advanced software and manufacturing take much of the guesswork out of straightening your teeth.

5. Fast and efficient

The final reason why you’re sure to love Invisalign is that we can correct most of the same issues as traditional metal braces, often more quickly and efficiently. Thanks to the innovative materials, we can correct misaligned teeth up to 50% faster, and you won’t need to visit us as often because your new aligners are shipped directly to you.

These five reasons are only the beginning, and we’re happy to sit down with you to explore how Invisalign can help you or your child reach your straightening goals. Simply contact one of our two offices or request a consultation using our online scheduling tool.
