Despite the benefits of an orthodontic treatment, wearing metal braces isn’t easy. It can take several years of wearing visible metal bracesInvisalign to get the smile you want. If your dental case allows, you should consider getting Invisalign braces instead. Invisalign braces are nearly invisible, and it is a high demand orthodontic solution offered by Dr. W. Timothy Brooks at his dentist office in Huntsville, AL.

What Invisalign Is...
Invisalign has been an orthodontic option for patients for decades. It is a method of adjusting the positioning of the teeth using plastic trays instead of metal brackets. These nearly invisible braces provide an effective orthodontic treatment in a discreet manner. The patient must make a firm commitment to wear these custom dental trays for the vast majority of each day during the course of treatment, which can last anywhere from six months to a year and a half.

What It Can Do for You
Invisalign can help you in a number of ways, including closing gaps between your teeth, repositioning crowded teeth, and adjusting your bite. Keep in mind that this orthodontic solution is best for patients who have mild to moderate aesthetic concerns. Your dentist will be able to determine if Invisalign can address your problem. This treatment may have to be combined with others, like dental bonding or a dental crown, to perfect your smile.

The Preferred Orthodontic Treatment
Whenever possible, patients prefer to choose an Invisalign treatment over regular braces. Here are a few reasons why:

- A lot of patients love the idea of a straighter smile but loathe the idea of other people seeing their braces. If you are looking for a more discreet way to straighten your smile then Invisalign braces which are nearly invisible will certainly be the better option for you.
- Maintaining your oral hygiene is easier with Invisalign since the trays are removable, so you can take them off to brush and floss your teeth.
- You don’t have to worry about struggling through days of pain due to tightened braces after your regular visits to the dentist. Just pick up your plastic trays at each appointment—they are gentle on your smile.
