With spring right around the corner, many people are looking for ways to clean and improve their homes – so why not their teeth? For this blog, we wanted to talk about an increasingly popular and convenient treatment option being adopted by a growing and wide-ranging constituency of patients – Invisalign clear braces.

Invisalign With Your Albuquerque, NM Orthodontist

Invisalign is different from traditional braces – instead of using metal wires and brackets; Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic trays, or aligners, to gradually move teeth over time. With each new aligner, teeth get closer to their optimal position. Aligners are worn for an average of 2 weeks before moving on to the next set, with total treatment time averaging 6-15 months.

Furthermore, the aligners are actually removable, and can be easily taken out to eat, drink, brush, or floss. This means Invisalign doesn’t come with the dietary restrictions of traditional braces, and maintaining proper oral hygiene is easy.

Finally, Invisalign aligners are completely clear and barely noticeable – no one has to know you’re straightening your teeth except you and Dr. Hurt! This makes Invisalign a favorite choice for socially conscious teenagers and busy professionals alike.
