Many people are wondering how a practically invisible device that’s nothing like traditional braces can remove spaces and straighten teeth. It almost seems too good to be true. Invisalign is comfortable to wear and your friends will barely be able to tell.

How the orthodontist begins

The orthodontist begins by taking 3D scans of your mouth. This is an important step. It will tell your doctor exactly what problems you have and how to best solve them. Sometimes the orthodontist will learn that you are probably not a good candidate for Invisalign. He can let you know right in the beginning so you can proceed with traditional braces.

What are ceramic braces?

You could also choose ceramic braces. These are much like traditional braces except that they are the color of your teeth and made out of a durable polymer. Even the wires are tooth-colored so they’re really kind of attractive for braces.

Tips for success

Make sure to keep your teeth clean and your braces free of food particles. Brush several times a day. It’s easier for bacteria to form in your mouth when you’re wearing braces. Even with Invisalign, you’ll notice that you need to brush several times a day and really work to keep your teeth and gums in good health.
