For teens and adults, the idea of dealing with metal braces on a social level can be extremely disheartening. With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without that obvious ‘braces’ look.
Invisalign clear aligners have multiple benefits over traditional braces. Most of these fall in two different categories:
Invisalign aligners can be taken out to eat - This means that unlike with traditional braces, you can eat whatever you want, with no limitations and nothing getting stuck in your wires or brackets to embarrass you later! Just make sure you clean your teeth thoroughly after each meal and snack, and you’re good to go.
You can take them out to brush and floss - Your aligners can also be removed to brush and floss, so no spending ages trying to clean around each pesky nook and cranny between wires and brackets. And again, you don’t need to worry that your braces are hanging onto food debris and plaque buildup.
You don’t have to visit us as often! - We’re always happy to see our patients, but most of them have busy lives, and making time in their schedules for adjustment appointments isn’t always easy! Since your Invisalign aligners don’t need adjustments, you don’t have to make time in your schedule to see us as often. All you have to do is switch to a new set of aligners at the prescribed regular intervals.
Your clear aligners are made of BPA-free, transparent plastic, so when you’re wearing them, they’re basically invisible.
This means that your co-workers or your date may not even notice that you're undergoing orthodontic treatment. You’ll be surprised at how many people don’t even catch on.
And as mentioned above, your food won’t be getting caught on your brackets and wires to haunt you later!
