This is what Invisalign can help with. As an aligner, Invisalign is able to eliminate space between teeth, overcrowding, and issues with your bite.

Experiencing a dental issue such as a misalignment or crooked teeth can be easily fixed with Invisalign. If you consider yourself to be a candidate for Invisalign, the dental professionals of Dr. Wiley and Dr. Parker at Uptown Family Dental will be glad to schedule your initial dental exam. They will explain the entire process and the reasons why many opt for it. there are many benefits to choosing Invisalign.

Easy Cleaning of Your Teeth and Aligner

When you have braces, the ability to keep your teeth clean may be a difficult task to achieve. This is because food particles may get left behind after brushing or are in areas where the brush cannot reach. This can lead to a decline in your dental hygiene if your teeth and braces remain dirty.

When an Invisalign is worn, it can be removed and cleaned easily. There is also no need to be concerned with cleaning around them. When you are able to brush normally, your oral hygiene is able to remain protected.

Unrestricted Food

Many times a dentist will advise a patient to stay away from certain foods like chewing gum following the placement of braces. However, with Invisalign, you do not need to change your diet or stay away from certain foods. To eat, you can remove your Invisalign.

Increase In Comfort

When the mouth and teeth are introduced to an appliance, you will need time to become comfortable wearing it. Invisalign is able to provide comfort right from the start. The main reasons are because there are no metal parts or edges to cause irritation and no need for them to be tightened, as there is with braces.


An issue that many have about wearing braces is their appearance. When you smile, everyone will notice your braces before they see your smile. But when you have an Invisalign, you can smile with confidence without having to hide it.

The Number of Dental Visits Are Decreased

When you have an Invisalign, the amount of needed visits to the dentist is decreased in comparison to braces. With each trip, you will only need to have a new set placed and without any tightening. Typically, the time frame for a new Invisalign is every two to three weeks.

Teeth Do Not Discolor

When wearing braces, discoloration may occur where each bracket is. When this happens, it is from sugar and foods that cause staining. When you wear Invisalign, there will be no staining since the aligners can be removed to allow an even cleaning of the teeth.
