People have been using wires in a variety of ways to pull teeth and change their alignment for centuries. As effective as braces are, you do have another option to consider if you want straight teeth in Houston, TX.
You can use Invisalign aligners to correct crooked teeth, close gaps in your, and fix overbites or underbites. Below, you will find the three C’s that set treatment with Invisalign apart from traditional orthodontic care.
You can’t really hide the fact that you are wearing braces on the front of your teeth. Your Invisalign aligners, on the other hand, are transparent and custom-made to fit your teeth at each stage of your treatment. As a result, they seem to disappear when you place them over your teeth.
As effective as braces are, they can be equally irritating to soft tissues of your mouth. Plus, a wire can break and poke into your cheeks, your lip, or your gums. A bracket can break loose, too.
Each aligner is a single piece of plastic. There are no wires or brackets, and the smooth surface makes them easy to wear.
Aligners can be removed when you sit down to eat or when you do your daily brushing and flossing. Braces are literally stuck to your teeth at every moment of your treatment. As a result, you may have to give up foods that you love or use special tools to clean your teeth until your treatment is complete.
