Invisalign is a revolutionary way to provide braces for those teens and adults who still hate the stigma that goes along with having to get braces to correct the alignment of their teeth. There are some definite benefits that come along with this revolutionary new technology. Here are the top five benefits that come with choosing Invisalign over traditional braces:
5 – Materials
Unlike traditional braces that are made of metal or ceramics and cannot be removed, Invisalign is made from a plastic resin material the developers call “SmartTrack”; this material offers more predictable and controlled tooth movement and you don’t have to go back in as often for adjustments.
4 – Hygiene
Let’s clear this one out of the way right off the bat. Oral hygiene is a definite must-do for anyone having their teeth properly aligned. With traditional braces, this can involve a lot of detailed picking and cleaning of the brackets and wires to make sure that all the food and gunk is cleaned out. Not so with Invisalign; because these braces are easily removable for normal brushing and flossing.
3 – Comfort
As mentioned earlier, because Invisalign is a custom-molded plastic tray that fits over the teeth, it is insanelycomfortable. Brackets and wires on traditional braces can cause a lot of discomfort as well as sores from the metal rubbing against the soft flesh inside your mouth. With Invisalign, you don’t have any of that.
2 – Appearance
Those who grew up in a time before Invisalign are familiar with the stigma associated with metal braces. While the teasing isn’t so much of a thing these days, wearing braces can still be a bit of a self-confidence downer. So consider Invisalign a confidence rocket booster!!! With their near-invisible design, adults and teens alike can go about their daily routine completely stigma-free.
1 – Lifestyle
One of the downfalls of wearing braces involves the lifestyle department… so many rules to follow when it comes to cleaning your teeth and brace such as what types of foods you can eat or drink. But not with Invisalign; this revolutionary (relatively) type of braces are easily removed for eating and drinking, not just for the hygiene. And even better, since there is no possibility of having broken brackets or wires, no more emergency visits for repairs! It’s certainly a win for anyone wearing them.
Hopefully these helpful tips and benefits give you something to think about if braces are in your future; and with so many positives, that’s definitely a reason to smile!
