If you’re looking for an alternative to metal braces, consider Invisalign. Braces used to be the only way someone could align their smile, but with the advent of clear aligners, that’s no longer the case. Invisalign, a thinner plastic appliance, can be used with both adults and teens, and may decrease your treatment time. Find out why you should check out Invisalign in today’s post.

The history of Invisalign dates back to 1997, and has risen in popularity over the last decade. Instead of metal braces that can be uncomfortable and take longer, clear aligners are comfortable, easier, and more fun. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners that you change every few weeks that slowly but surely realigns your teeth, without anyone knowing you are wearing them!

When wearing Invisalign, you can remove them for up to four hours a day, instead of them being mounted on your teeth for the remainder of your treatment. It makes it much easier to eat with them, as well as have photos taken, or when brushing and flossing.

Some of the advantages of aligning your teeth with Invisalign in Scarsdale, New York, include:

– Less treatment time
– More comfortable
– Reduced expense
– Invisible

– Easier brushing and flossing
