Why Invisalign Has Such a High Satisfaction Rate Among Both Adults and Teens

Whether at a job interview or on a first date, a brilliant smile creates an equally brilliant initial impression. Just ask the almost 50% of adults surveyed by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry who found the smile more memorable than what the person said or what they wore.

With Invisalign®, straightening those pearly whites has never been easier. 

Increased Comfort and Decreased Visibility

Say goodbye to a mouth full of bulky metal brackets and poking wires that cause irritation and sores. With Invisalign, the expert dental team at ToothDocs employs custom-created special flexible plastic aligners from impressions they make at their office. 

These aligners fit your teeth snugly, applying gentle pressure to move your teeth into their proper positions for a straight smile and a healthy bite. Plus, the clear plastic makes them almost invisible.

Easy Removability

Many people, especially teens, feel self-conscious when wearing traditional braces and often compensate with awkward closed-mouth smiles or by avoiding the camera altogether. Invisalign aligners make the embarrassment of metal mouth a thing of the past. 

With this revolutionary treatment system, it's easy to remove the aligners for a quick photo or even a night out on the town without having any negative impact on the tooth-straightening process. 

No Off-Limits Foods

Read the list of foods you shouldn’t eat when wearing braces and you may wonder what’s left that you actually can eat. Everything from popcorn and nuts, to hard rolls and ice, could damage the brackets, while sugary candies and soft drinks can contribute to tooth decay. And forget biting into an apple or corn on the cob. 

Invisalign allows you to indulge how and where you want by simply taking out your aligners, enjoying your treat, and then returning them to their proper position after you brush your teeth.

Better Oral Hygiene

No more trying to weave floss underwires and scrub teeth with tiny toothbrushes. With Invisalign, proper dental care is easier than as ever. Simply pop out the aligners, floss, and brush as usual, and then put them back in.

Steady Progress

Broken brackets on traditional braces can add months to treatment timelines. Invisalign, on the other hand, provides consistent improvement when worn at least 20-22 hours a day. You switch out your aligner sets for new ones every week or two as your teeth shift toward their proper placement. 

The ToothDoc team provides a complete plan and schedule, with treatment on average lasting just a year.

Durability

The Invisalign plastic aligners are made from a special thermoplastic material that offers both flexibility for comfort and durability so they last. Plus they are BPA-free.

Low Maintenance

Aligner care is fast and simple. Rinse them in lukewarm water (too hot and it could soften and reshape the plastic), and then gently brush your aligners with a toothbrush and mild antibacterial soap before putting them back in. Periodic soaking with a denture or retainer cleaning solution can help prevent calcium or tartar build-up. For even greater ease, Invisalign offers a special cleaning system available for online order.
