Crooked teeth are embarrassing, not to mention they cause several problems for your dental health. Teeth that aren't appropriately aligned are harder to brush and floss. Missed plaque and bacteria that build up could make you more susceptible to developing problems like tooth decay and gum disease. A misaligned bite can also be problematic for your jaw joints and cause a painful joint disorder called temporomandibular joint disorder or TMD.

The good news is that Invisalign clear aligners can be an excellent solution for straightening teeth without the hassle of wearing ugly metal braces. Here are some advantages that Invisalign in Germantown offers our adult and teenage patients. 

#1 Clear Aligners Are Removeable

You should wear your aligners as much as possible to keep your treatment progressing, typically at least 22 hours per day; however, you can easily take them out for brushing, flossing, and eating.

#2 Treatment Is Efficient

Treatment times vary according to each patient's specific needs; however, most patients can complete treatment with Invisalign anywhere from 12 to 18 months.

#3 Clear Aligners Are Comfortable to Wear

Since there are no brackets and wires, there's no metal to worry about poking or irritating your gums or soft tissues. In addition, Invisalign aligners are smooth, comfortable, and fit snugly over your teeth, so they are hardly noticeable.

#4 Clear Aligners Are Invisible

This is probably everyone's favorite benefit! Your BPA-free, clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible, so you can straighten your teeth with the confidence of knowing that no one will ever notice.

#5 No Changes to Your Diet or Home Care Routine Are Needed

Since aligners are removable, you don't have the food restrictions that accompany traditional braces. You also won't have to change your home care routine and worry about the hassle of brushing and flossing around brackets and wires.
