At Meister Orthodontics, we offer different treatment options to our patients because we know that every person has different needs and desires and that each smile is unique. We use only the most effective treatment methods to ensure that each patient we serve achieves a lifelong, healthy and attractive smile. Many people in the St. Paul, MN area inquire about Invisalign, which is a very popular way to straighten teeth.

Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to bring teeth into proper alignment. When you are being treated with Invisalign, you can enjoy a wide range of benefits including the following:

Treatment is Very Discreet

The custom-made Invisalign aligners are made of a clear plastic material to make them virtually invisible. This makes Invisalign perfect for adults who don’t want to wear highly visible metal braces that are often associated with teenagers.

The Aligners are Smooth and Comfortable

The smooth and comfortable Invisalign aligners are designed to gradually guide the teeth into place by maintaining constant pressure on the teeth. There are no wires or brackets used whatsoever and there is nothing to tighten during your regular orthodontic appointments. The aligners are similar to protective mouth guards and are relatively comfortable to wear.

Very Convenient Treatment

When you’re undergoing Twin Cities Invisalign treatment, you can take the aligners out when eating and when cleaning your teeth. You can also remove them temporarily for special occasions like family photos, a wedding or graduation, as long as you put them right back in when done. The aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours each day in order for Invisalign to work as it’s designed.

It is Easy to Keep Your Teeth Clean

Since the aligners are designed to be removed when brushing and flossing, there is nothing present that can make it hard to clean your teeth well. This will help ensure that you don’t run into any dental problems during your treatment like tooth decay, that could throw your treatment off track.

You Can Continue Eating All Your Favorite Foods

Unlike regular braces which come with food restrictions, treatment with Invisalign allows you to eat all your favorite foods for the entire treatment process including hard, crunchy and chewy foods. All you have to do is remove your aligners, enjoy your food and then put the aligners back in after you’ve brushed your teeth following the meal.
