InvisalignWhen orthodontic treatment is needed to correct bite and alignment problems that stand in the way between you and straighter teeth, it can present something of a dilemma, especially for adults and teenagers. In the past, the road to straighter teeth meant wearing metallic braces for up to two years, which many teenagers and adults are reluctant to do for a number of reasons. But thanks to Invisalign clear aligner trays, you no longer have to choose between straight teeth and giving up two years of your life to traditional braces. Dr. Selena Marchan, a family dentist in Jacksonville, FL, recommends Invisalign for older teenagers and adults looking for an effective and discreet method for getting straighter teeth.

Straighten Your Smile Discreetly with Invisalign in Jacksonville, FL

The most obvious benefit of the Invisalign system is that it consists of high quality plastic trays that are practically invisible when placed on your teeth. Unlike braces, which are held in place through a system of brackets and wires that restrict your diet, oral hygiene routine, and can feel uncomfortable, Invisalign trays are removable for up to two hours every day. This means that you can continue to eat your favorite foods without restriction, and keep up your oral hygiene routine throughout the treatment process.

Depending on your needs, the treatment period may be shorter with Invisalign than with traditional braces. Each tray is worn for approximately two weeks and then changed for the next tray in the series. Invisalign gradually shifts your teeth into the desired alignment just like traditional braces, so you can expect the same results without the sacrifice.
