Find out how your Saginaw Township dentist could get a straighter smile with Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?Invisalign

Invisalign is a series of clear, plastic aligners that are custom-made to fit over the upper and lower teeth to slow shift your smile into the proper position. Each aligner is designed to move certain teeth and specific amount, as planned out by your Saginaw Township dentist Dr. Gregory Herzler beforehand.

What can Invisalign do for your smile?

Invisalign can be a wonderful option for many of our patients looking to get a straighter smile. Here are only some of the benefits you can expect when you get Invisalign from your Saginaw Township dentist Dr. Herzler:

Easy to clean: Since you don’t have to battle with brackets and wires to clean away bacteria and food particles it makes it significantly easier not only to clean your own teeth but to also keep your aligners clean, too. Be sure to brush your aligners just as you would your normal teeth, at least twice a day using a toothbrush and toothpaste. Also, give your aligners a simple rinse between snacks or other meals throughout the day.

Removable: Unlike traditional braces Invisalign can be removed. This makes it easy to fit braces into just about anyone’s busy lifestyle. Want to enjoy a lovely meal with friends? Just remove your aligners before mealtime. Want to give your teeth a good brushing and flossing before bed? Just pop out your aligners. It’s that simple.

Comfortable fit: Since your aligners are custom-made to fit your smile, you will notice the difference it will make. Your braces should feel more comfortable than traditional braces, as the metal can be irritating to the gums.

Eat anything you want: Since your aligners can be removed you don’t have to worry about adhering to a braces-friendly diet, as you would if you got traditional braces. All you have to do is remove your aligners before eating or drinking and then rinse them out and put them back in when you are done. Still enjoy eating all your favorite foods while also getting a straighter smile.

Discreetness: Since Invisalign aligners are invisible you don’t have to worry that other people will be looking at your braces and not you. This is particularly important for those in school or the professional world. Now you can straighten your teeth without anyone even noticing.

If you are ready to take the next step to getting Invisalign then it’s time to schedule a consultation with your Saginaw Township dentist, Dr. Gregory Herzler.
