The aligners are clear and plastic, so you can keep your treatment confidential at work and school. Another benefit of the plastic aligners is that you can remove them whenever you like. Invisalign patients tend to have healthier teeth than other people have during treatment because they have access to their teeth for brushing and flossing. The aligners can come out of your mouth when you eat, so you never have to worry about obstructions. Aligner customers claim that they gave much less discomfort than traditional braces patients have.
