Clear and Removable Aligners Take the Hassle of Braces Away for Manassas, VA Area Patients
Social stigma is one of the top reasons why many people dislike traditional metal braces. While it is true that metal braces are quite visible when you smile, there is an alternative. The Invisalign system is a set of clear aligns that are practically invisible. That’s right – no one will even be able to tell you’re wearing these aligners.
Removable for Sports, Eating, and Hygiene
As you likely know, metal braces are usually affixed to your teeth for several months. During that time, brushing and flossing around the wires and brackets can be difficult. Sports and athletics can also be a problem because of the potential for mouth injuries. But Invisalign avoids these issues with discreet, removable orthodontic correction.
Although you should wear your aligner as much as possible during the day for maximum treatment benefit, Invisalign is removable for eating, self-dental care, and playing sports. You do not have to worry about getting food entangled in your braces, and you can replace your aligner with a mouthguard during athletics. You’ll also find brushing and flossing to be no different since you can remove your aligner at any time.
The Invisalign system is simple. Dr. Hussaini will provide you with a new Invisalign aligner every few weeks, gradually advancing your teeth into the correct alignment. Many patients also report that these polymer aligners are much more comfortable than old-fashioned metal braces with less abrasion to the lips and gums.
