Everyone deserves to have a smile that they are proud of. Yet, for individuals with crooked or misaligned teeth, traditional metal braces are less than attractive, uncomfortable, and too much of a bother, specifically for adults. That’s why many are opting for a clear choice—Invisalign. Through a series of aligner trays, Invisalign straightens teeth in a comfortable, virtually invisible way. With no metal brackets or wires to tighten, Invisalign is an easy choice for patients of all ages.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Appearance: While traditional metal braces remain popular and effective, having a mouth full of metal is simply unappealing to some, not to mention the hassle of removing food from brackets after eating. As an alternative, Invisalign trays are barely noticeable. Thus, they are an attractive way to undergo treatment. This is good news for adults that may be embarrassed by unsightly metal brackets and wires.
Comfort: With the ability to be removed, patients with Invisalign can enjoy eating, drinking, and talking normally. Invisalign aligner trays are comfortable and smooth.
Gentle: It’s common for the inside of the mouth to become raw, punctured, or scratched from traditional metal braces. This method of straightening teeth also uses a great deal of force to move teeth. By contrast, Invisalign trays are smooth and gentler than metal braces. In addition, it’s easier for patients to maintain good oral health with Invisalign, reducing the risk of periodontal disease.
Treatment Time: Invisalign requires less treatment time than traditional means. This is because the treatment plan is more predictable, rather than by trial-and-error. Generally, patients can expect their treatment time with Invisalign to range from 12 to 18 months.
Perhaps the greatest benefit to Invisalign is that it helps patients achieve the smile they deserve with very little interference to their daily life.
