Are your teeth crooked or crowded? Do you wish for a straighter, more attractive smile? Dr. James E. Gaff may recommend Invisalign® in Jacksonville, Florida. Invisalign is the leading brand of invisible aligners, which use a series of snug-fitting retainers that slip over your teeth to gently straighten your smile. These aligners are custom-made for your smile, and each set helps the teeth progress to their ideal positions.
Invisalign has many advantages over braces. Unlike braces, which use brackets and wires to straighten your teeth, Invisalign uses nearly invisible aligners. Most people will not even realize you are straightening your teeth. Invisalign are made from comfortable plastic that will not irritate your gums or lips, unlike braces, whose wires can poke and irritate your mouth. Aligners can be removed, so it is easy to brush and floss your teeth. Because they can be removed, you can eat whatever you want. There are no food restrictions like there are with braces. With Invisalign, you only need to visit our dentist every four to six weeks. That is much less often than with braces.
