Invisalign is a series of clear, plastic aligners that straighten your teeth without wires or brackets. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and fit over your teeth. If you have crooked or misaligned teeth and wish to straighten them, here are the reasons why you should choose Invisalign aligners.
One of the biggest reasons patients choose Invisalign instead of braces is because there are no brackets, wires, or bands necessary with Invisalign treatment. Instead, the aligners are completely removable for eating and drinking, meaning you don't have to give up any of your favorite foods and beverages during treatment. Having the ability to remove your aligner will make it easy to keep your teeth clean and avoid staining your enamel from the foods and drinks you enjoy. Brushing and flossing will also be easier since you can floss and brush without obstruction from metal hardware.
Another benefit of choosing the clear tray system of Invisalign is the ease of maintaining your oral health during orthodontic treatment. Since the aligners are removable, it can be easier to clean and care for your teeth compared to traditional braces that may trap food particles and require special tools to remove plaque. By being able to maintain good oral hygiene while wearing your aligners, you can avoid common oral health issues such as tooth decay and gum disease. Since you can remove your aligners to eat, you can also enjoy foods that may be difficult to eat with traditional braces.
Many patients also prefer Invisalign because they prefer the discreet appearance of clear aligners. Invisalign eliminates the need for orthodontics with metal wiring and brackets that do not look attractive. The clear aligners are virtually invisible, so nobody will even know you are wearing braces until you tell them. If you don't like the appearance of wires and brackets, then consider Invisalign instead.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear. Some patients even forget they're wearing them! This makes them ideal for adults and teens who don't want to deal with the inconvenience of metal brackets and wires.
The smooth plastic also eliminates the risk of mouth irritation which makes wearing traditional braces uncomfortable for many patients. With no sharp metal brackets protruding into your mouth, there is no risk of cuts or tears inside your mouth. There is no adjustment period either—as soon as you receive your first set of trays, you can start wearing them right away and track your progress with a set of digital 3D images.
Unlike traditional braces, you won't have to make as many visits to the dentist for adjustments since these clear aligners are custom made to fit your teeth exactly. This also means you'll be on your way to a straighter smile much sooner than you would with traditional braces. In fact, most people who wear Invisalign see results in as little as six to nine months. That's about half the time it would take if you were using metal braces!
