Eat What You Want
While it’s recommended that you wear your custom made clear aligners or Invisalign® aligners at least 20 to 22 hours a day, you are free to remove them periodically. Removal during meals allows you to freely eat foods that are restricted when wearing traditional braces. Foods like popcorn, gum, and other crunchy snacks have to be avoided when wearing conventional braces to prevent food getting stuck or damage to the braces; however, with custom-made clear aligners or Invisalign®, you no longer have to worry about any of that!
The ability to remove your custom made clear aligners or Invisalign® aligners can also help you maintain a polished, professional look when necessary. If you need to attend a formal social function, go to a job interview, or have an important meeting with a client, you have the option to avoid having your teeth hidden by traditional braces with Invisalign®.
A Shorter Timeframe for Treatment
Custom made clear aligners or Invisalign® treatment takes an average of 12 to 18 months. However, if you were to choose traditional braces, your treatment could last anywhere from 18 to 36 months. This variance is due to differences in the conditions being treated. Not only is your treatment duration shorter, but with Invisalign® aligners, most people won’t even notice you have them on.
You Can Visualize Your Results
When you begin your custom made clear aligners or Invisalign® treatment, Dr. Jacobson will perform a 3D mapping procedure of your teeth. His office is one of the best-equipped centers in the country and utilizes a proprietary digital laboratory and 3D software to provide excellent results. From there, a correction strategy for your treatment plan will be developed. You will see a live time-lapse of your teeth being corrected at each stage of the treatment to let you envision the end result of your custom made clear aligners or Invisalign® treatment. Your aligners are created once the treatment plan is finalized, and you will be able to begin treatment within one week!
