At Dr. Ross Taddeo Orthodontics, we love providing our patients in East Orlando with discreet Invisalign® as an alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign® is a comfortable and low-profile aligner that is nearly impossible for others to see. Made with clear polyurethane plastic, clear aligners do not draw attention like traditional orthodontic appliances that cover the teeth with brackets and wires.
Is Invisalign® Right for You?
Invisalign® aligners can be easily removed to eat, brush and floss. This makes them much more convenient than traditional braces, but it can become a problem for those who take their aligners out too frequently. Patients who have the discipline to wear their aligners according to doctor recommendations will enjoy the following benefits:
- Comfort: Since invisible braces are smooth, they do not scratch the cheeks and lips like brackets and wires tend to do.
- Improved Oral Hygiene: While traditional braces cannot be removed for oral hygiene purposes, invisible aligners can easily be taken out in order to brush and floss thoroughly. This helps patients maintain an optimal level of oral hygiene while also avoiding the unattractive yellow spots on the teeth that can occur after wearing traditional braces for months.
- Discreet Appearance: One of the most attractive benefits of clear aligners is that they can be worn discreetly. Unlike traditional orthodontic appliances, most people cannot tell when you are wearing Invisalign® aligners.
- Protection From Teeth-Grinding: For those who have problems grinding their teeth at night, clean aligners serve an additional function of creating a barrier between the teeth and preventing them from getting worn down.
Invisalign® is a great solution for many patients who have crooked teeth, but traditional braces may be best for some patients. We will be happy to thoroughly analyze your teeth and let you know what type of braces we recommend for you.
