Invisalign is one of many orthodontic treatments out on the market today. It’s remarkable enough that the system uses plastic aligners rather than wires and brackets to move teeth. But is that a good thing? What are the benefits of Invisalign over those other traditional methods?
Let’s take a look at the top 3 benefits of Invisalign!
The first and most obvious benefit of Invisalign is that it’s very difficult to see. Many users report that close friends and family don’t even notice unless they tell them!
By using clear plastic to move the teeth, people can get all of the benefits of orthodontic treatments without it being incredibly obvious. Busy professionals and those with public-facing jobs — such as actors, models, and presenters — can get dental work done without interfering with the look of their teeth.
No Special Diet or Cleaning
Invisalign aligners can be taken out to eat and clean your teeth — in fact, they must be taken out to eat and clean!
What this means for patients is that you don’t need to worry about a special diet of soft foods, or struggle with precise cleaning requirements for getting food off of wires and brackets. Just take the aligners out, eat whatever you want, brush your teeth as normal and put the aligners back in. It’s that easy.
Significantly Less Discomfort
It takes a little while to get used to having something placed over your teeth. But Invisalign is much less uncomfortable, and much faster to get used to, than traditional wire and bracket systems. There are no pieces of ceramic or metal to catch on the inside of your lips and gums and cut yourself.
