If you would like an orthodontic treatment that does not involve braces, perhaps InvisalignⓇ retainers are what you are looking for. They work much like braces when it comes to realigning teeth, but they offer a few benefits that braces cannot
As the name implies, Invisalign is fairly see-through, which can let your smile be the star of the show. Braces can sometimes be a nuisance in that they can block out your smile, and unfortunately, braces may not be the prettiest things to look at.
On top of that, Invisalign retainers do not always have to stay in your mouth. You can take them out occasionally. With this ability, you can have a wider range of food options than you would not have with braces. You can set them somewhere safe as you appreciate the niceties of life.
You may find that cleaning the retainers is easier because you can take them out. You can hold them between your fingers or on your palms as you get them ready for another day. As an added bonus, you can brush and floss as you normally would with the retainers our. Conversely, braces can get in the way and make you adapt your brushing and flossing habits to accommodate them.
