There are a number of options available to help you straighten your teeth. Invisalign® is unique as the only option that is completely clear and does not require wires or brackets. Since the aligner is removable, you can enjoy various benefits. For example, you are able to eat, sing, and enjoy yourself in social settings without worry. It allows you to enjoy a level of flexibility not available with other teeth straightening apparatuses.
An Invisible Fix
One of the primary reasons why people, both teenagers or adults, think twice before getting braces is because they are concerned about how they are going to detract from their appearance. While traditional metal braces are common, they are conspicuous and may cause considerable self-consciousness. The Invisalign® aligner trays, on the other hand, are completely invisible.
A Comfortable Option
Anyone who wears traditional braces or who had traditional braces in youth can tell you just how uncomfortable they can be. Invisalign® is made from a smooth plastic. It is comfortable to wear and does not irritate the wear’s mouth like old-fashioned braces do.
Traditional braces made it difficult to brush and floss your teeth. When a person wears traditional braces, food often gets stuck in them. If a person is not diligent about brushing their teeth and using the special tools provided by their dentist, they will eventually develop food buildup around their braces. This could cause them to stain their teeth or develop decay around their braces. Invisalign® aligners are removable. This means that a person can brush and floss their teeth like they always have. The aligners can be cleaned every single day.
Fewer Visits to the Orthodontist
Going to the orthodontist’s office is never top on someone’s to-do list. When a person has traditional braces, they have to visit the orthodontist frequently. Since the visits require tightening the braces and making adjustments to them, the visits are usually time-consuming. This is not the case with Invisalign®. On average, a person using these invisible aligners will only need to visit the orthodontist once every six weeks. The visits are relatively quick because they involve simply changing out the existing aligner for a new one and maybe a minor checkup.
