Invisalign® : the future of straight smiles

The orthodontics industry saw a boom in business following the pandemic. According to Fortune Business Insights, the industry is expected to reach a value of about $10 billion by 2026. More and more people are desiring straight teeth, but not everyone wants to wear chunky metal braces.  

If you’re looking for an alternative to braces, Invisalign could be a fit for you. The Invisalign technology allows teeth to be straightened without metal brackets and wires. Instead, teeth are straightened using custom-fit and virtually invisible aligners. The aligners are rotated out, as your teeth shift into new positions. The number of aligners required to straighten your teeth depends on your specific needs and smile!  

The liners tend to be more comfortable than braces, and prevent food from getting stuck in your teeth, since Invisalign aligners are removed before eating. Eating, flossing and brushing your teeth doesn’t change with Invisalign! It is just as easy as before.  

Because of evolving technology, Invisalign can also accomplish more complicated teeth movements that couldn’t be accomplished with traditional braces. 

Many prefer Invisalign because of its appearance and comfort. It also requires less up-keep, as compared to braces. There are no broken brackets to be fixed, or wires to poke your gums.
