One of the biggest things that people don’t like about traditional metal braces is that they are so obvious. It is hard to not notice someone having a mouth full of metal, allowing everyone to know your business and that you are undergoing treatment. But with Invisalign, the treatment essentially goes unnoticed because they have been designed to be invisible.
The Invisalign braces were first available in 1998 and have been popular ever since because they provide a more comfortable and private treatment option. To use Invisalign braces, people see the orthodontist for an exam and fitting. The treatment uses custom made plastic aligners that are clear and fit right over the teeth, so they are not noticeable. The aligners are removable, as well, giving people the freedom to eat what they want and continue brushing and flossing their teeth as they normally would.
