If you are afraid of being called metal mouth, or if you are concerned about not being taken seriously in the work place, Invisalign could be a good choice. The Invisalign orthodontics treatment plan is comprised of wearing custom made clear aligner trays that will be imperceptible to most people. You will need to change to a new aligner approximately every two weeks. Each aligner tray moves your teeth closer to the position your Peoria AZ dentist desires. Along with being more aesthetically pleasing, Invisalign is also more comfortable, with no wires to poke you. The drawbacks to Invisalign braces are that they are more expensive and your orthodontics treatment may take longer. Additionally, the aligners must be worn about 22 hours per day in order to be effective, so they require maturity and responsibility, and may not work well for children. The aligners should only be removed at mealtime and in order to brush your teeth. In addition, you may not be a good candidate for Invisalign, since they are not suitable to correct every possible type of problem.
