With Invisalign in Lakeview, there are many advantages over braces. Not only do they straighten your teeth the way braces do, they are virtually invisible. Nobody will know you are wearing aligners for your teeth. This is because Invisalign aligners are made with a thin, smooth plastic that is very comfortable to wear. And to avoid getting food stuck in them, you just simply take the aligners out. You can also remove them to brush your teeth so you get a more thorough brushing than you would wearing braces. You should wear your Invisalign aligners for 22 to 23 hours out of the day. This means you should only take them out when you need to eat something or brush your teeth. As stated before, when you are wearing your Invisalign aligners, most people will not even realize you are wearing them since they are nearly invisible.
