Invisalign is a wonderful alternative to traditional braces. If you desire a straighter, healthier smile, we recommend looking in to whether Invisalign meets your needs. This treatment option can correct spacing issues between teeth and occlusal problems such as underbites and overbites.
Following are the top five benefits of choosing Invisalign.
Invisalign is Discreet
Unlike traditional braces, which use metal wires and brackets, Invisalign uses clear retainer-like appliances called aligners. These aligners are very discreet – those around you won’t notice your aligners allowing you to straighten your smile inconspicuously. Working professionals especially enjoy the fact that Invisalign isn’t as detectable as traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners are not fixed in place. Aligners are taken out for meals and oral hygiene. This means you can eat, brush, and floss without oral appliances in your way.
Invisalign is more comfortable than conventional orthodontia. People enjoy the fact that aligners are made from smooth plastic. There are no sharp edges that can irritate or cut into soft oral tissue.
Improved Oral Health
Over time, Invisalign treatment can improve oral health. Straight, properly aligned teeth will make appropriate contact during oral function, which reduces the risk of developing tooth wear. Moreover, adequately spaced teeth are easier to keep clean with oral hygiene, which reduces the risks of tooth decay and gum disease.
An obvious benefit to Invisalign treatment is straighter teeth. Having a straighter smile reduces the risk for common oral disease and helps people feel confident and attractive.
