For people who want to straighten their teeth, but don’t want to deal with metal braces, Invisalign can be a great option. Since this technique of using clear aligners is different than that of metal braces, an Invisalign-trained provider is needed to move your smile in the right direct.
Picking the right provider might seem overwhelming. Luckily, you can visit us at Dr. Aura Marcela Torres in Santa Cruz, CA to see how we work hand in hand with dental technicians to create perfectly fit clear aligners for you.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign gently and gradually moves your teeth with a series of aligners made just for you. There are a few reasons Invisalign might be a better option for you than traditional metal braces.
Now you can change your smile gradually without making a loud statement to the world. Invisalign is practically invisible so it won’t get in the way of your look and style.
Unlike metal braces that have wires and brackets that can poke and irritate your tongue and the inside of your mouth, Invisalign smoothly moves your teeth gradually towards the look you want.
With Invisalign you are not forced to brush and floss around brackets and wires or only eat certain types of food. Having clear aligners doesn’t disrupt your normal life the way metal braces tend to affect daily habits.
Why should I get Invisalign?
If you are dissatisfied with the look of your smile, Invisalign is the discrete and minimally invasive way to make a change. You may have seen our patients in Santa Cruz, Capitola, Scotts Valley, Soquel, and the surrounding areas wearing Invisalign aligners and not even known it. Now it’s easier than ever to get the smile you always wanted without drastically changing your life.
How do I take care of my Invisalign?
Since the Invisalign aligners are removable, it is simple and easy to clean them and maintain good oral hygiene. The Invisalign cleaning kit has all you need to help keep your aligners clean, clear, and free of odor. You can also brush them and rinse in lukewarm water.
You should of course also keep up good oral hygiene habits to maintain a mouth healthy and strong gums. A clean and healthy mouth will also keep your aligners working and looking better.
