How comfortable are Invisalign clear braces?

Invisalign clear braces are very comfortable! In fact, comfort is one of the many benefits that Invisalign aligners offer compared to other orthodontics. One of the most common complaints with traditional braces is that they cause irritation inside your cheek and gums. But Invisalign clear aligners are made of smooth and comfortable BPA-free plastic that feels great and won’t cause the discomfort associated with traditional metal braces.

In addition to being more comfortable, Invisalign aligners offer the benefit of being completely removable for eating, brushing and flossing. Proper oral hygiene is extremely important to avoid the risk of developing periodontal disease.

After examining and your teeth and deciding if you are a good candidate for Invisalign, we take digital x-rays and impressions. A 3-D image is created using this information, and a specific treatment plan will be developed to create your set of aligners.

You will be given a full set of Invisalign aligners, and approximately every two weeks you will move to the next set in the series. Every time you change your aligners, you will actually be able to see the difference as your teeth are gently moved into proper alignment.

Childs and Childs Dentistry is an authorized Invisalign provider, and we will be happy to consult with you and answer any questions you may have about Invisalign.  Choosing any type of orthodontic treatment is a big step, and we will help you decide if Invisalign is the right choice for you.
