Advantages of Invisalign, Although traditional metal braces remain a popular method of fixing crooked or misaligned teeth, many find having a mouth full of brackets and wires uncomfortable and unsightly. Fortunately, Invisalign provides an excellent alternative to conventional braces. The Invisalign system involves wearing a series of clear aligners that slowly change the alignment of your teeth over time, providing results that are practically identical to wearing traditional braces. Here are just a few reasons to use Invisalign to improve your smile.
The biggest advantage of Invisalign for adults is that it is much more aesthetically pleasing than wearing braces. Invisalign aligners are made from clear plastic, and they are practically invisible when they are worn. Most people won’t know that you are wearing an aligner at all.
Even though traditional braces are perfectly safe when they are properly cared for, many people still don’t like how they feel. Metal brackets and wires have been known to rub the insides of cheeks and lips raw, and broken braces can cut the inside of your mouth. This is rarely a problem with Invisalign. While you will need to make sure that your aligners remain in good shape, wearing them will almost always be more comfortable – and arguably safer – than metal braces.
One of the bigger headaches of wearing braces is having to maintain them. Food gets caught in them easily, they can make proper dental care more of a hassle, and you will need to make an appointment with your orthodontist if you need to have them repaired. With Invisalign, you can remove your aligner when you sit down to eat and when you brush or floss your teeth. You might still need to make an appointment to replace a broken aligner, but this is still much easier to handle than replacing a missing bracket or a broken wire.
As useful as Invisalign is, no one orthodontic solution is perfect for everybody. If you are interested in Invisalign and you want to know if it is right for you, contact Amazing Smiles Orthodontics today to schedule a free consultation.
