What’s So Special About Invisalign?
Invisalign uses virtually invisible aligners or trays to gradually move your teeth into place for a beautiful smile. A series of clear trays that are unique to you are made, replacing traditional metal braces. Dr. Sprayberry will tell you how long to wear each tray – usually one or two weeks – and when to switch to the next one.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
If Invisalign is right for you, there are lots of advantages over metal braces:
- Discreet: Nearly invisible, no one will notice that you’re wearing Invisalign.
- Removable: Take out your aligners out to eat, drink, brush, and floss. No wire or brackets means unrestricted eating, nowhere for food to get caught and nothing to break.
- Comfortable: The smooth, closely fitted trays don’t irritate like wires or brackets can.
- Convenient: Play a sport or instrument? Keep up with your activities without worry or changes in routine.
- Easy: Fewer appointments are needed, since you just switch to the next tray instead of having an in office braces adjustment.
- Fun: We’ll show how your teeth will look at the end of treatment right when you begin! Instead of imagining how much better your smile can be, you’ll be able to see it for yourself.
