Are your teeth crooked or crowded? Do you wish for a straighter, more beautiful smile? Ask Dr. Gregory J. Brandau about Invisalign® in Sarasota, Florida. Invisalign is the leading brand of clear aligners, which are custom-made trays that are worn over the teeth to straighten them over time. A series of aligners are made for you that will move your teeth to their ideal positions. Wear the trays for 20 to 22 hours per day. About every two weeks, our dentist will give you the next set of trays.
Invisalign has many advantages over traditional braces. While traditional braces have wires and brackets that will stand out against your smile, Invisalign uses clear aligners that are virtually invisible. Most people will not even realize that you are straightening your teeth. Braces use wires that can poke and irritate your mouth and cheeks, but aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic. It is difficult to brush and floss your teeth with traditional braces. However, aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss with ease. Braces wearers have may food restrictions, but those who choose Invisalign can continue to eat their favorite foods.
