For those that have crooked teeth or a misaligned bite, traditional braces are not the only option. If you would like to straighten your teeth without the use of metal brackets and wires, consider Invisalign® in Colleyville and Plano, Texas. Invisalign is a series of clear, comfortable, removable aligners that straighten the teeth over time. Each set of Invisalign aligners is worn on the teeth for about two weeks.

Invisalign has several advantages over braces. While traditional braces require brackets and wires that can take away from the beauty of your smile, Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually invisible. Because of this, you can smile with confidence! The wires of braces can poke the inside of your cheeks and mouth, causing irritation. On the other hand, Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic. Caring for your teeth and gums can be difficult with braces, but Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss as usual. Those who wear braces cannot have certain foods, like caramel, popcorn, nuts, and sticky foods. However, with removable Invisalign aligners, you can continue to eat your favorite foods.
