Over the years, traditional braces have proven to be an effective way to straighten your teeth. However, they have several clear downsides. Luckily, Invisalign can address your crooked or misaligned teeth in an equally effective, but completely modern way that leaves all the worries of traditional braces behind. The advantages of Invisalign make it a popular method to get the smile you’ve always wanted!
Because Invisalign is custom made to fit your teeth, they fit your mouth precisely, and they are barely noticeable when you wear them. In addition, the clear aligners are smooth and comfortable, unlike the metal brackets and wires involved with traditional braces, which can poke, dig into, or cut your lips or cheeks.
Depending on the severity of your misalignment, traditional braces can take up to three years. However, treatment with Invisalign is typically completed by 18 months at the most. Also, traditional braces require frequent adjustment appointments with the dentist. With Invisalign, you have fewer visits in our office, saving you precious time.
Invisalign trays are removeable, which means that you can keep doing your normal oral hygiene routine every day. Metal braces present obstacles that you have to work around in your oral care and can easily, and often do, get food stuck in them. But with Invisalign, maintaining your healthy smile is simple and straightforward. Just remove the trays to brush and floss your teeth and make sure to brush your trays before you go to bed.
With traditional braces, you have a long list of foods that you need to avoid, such as popcorn and gum. Invisalign clear trays allow you to continue enjoying the foods you love without worrying about sabotaging your orthodontic treatment.
In many cases, Invisalign is partially covered by dental insurance and can cost roughly the same as traditional braces. When you think of what it can save you in time, confidence, and maintenance, Invisalign treatment is well worth it!
