What are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Getting braces is not a fun experience for anyone, but the end results make it worth it in the end. But what if there was an option where you could fix your teeth alignment without all of the issues that come with braces? It’s called Invisalign and the benefits are endless!

Avoid Pain and Discomfort

The metal wires and components of traditional braces are known for causing discomfort, pain, and even mouth sores. Between the constant poking and prodding, those wearing braces quickly become fed up with the pain and irritation caused by traditional braces. For athletes participating in contact sports, the risk of serious damage also increases if struck in the mouth. Simply put, it’s not a pleasant experience, but with Invisalign, the straighteners are smooth plastic molded to fit your teeth. It is a comfortable and pain free option to correct teeth alignment.

You Can Remove Invisalign at Any Time

With traditional braces installed by a professional, you are stuck with them until the treatment is over. This lasts years and can severely impact your life, confidence levels, athletic participation, and even what you eat. With Invisalign, you can remove the straighteners whenever you need and put them back in later without compromising your re-alignment progress. If you are participating in sports or have a big meeting, you can quickly take your Invisalign straighteners out and replace them shortly after. With traditional braces that is just not possible.

Eat Whatever You Want

With traditional braces comes the struggle of eating whatever you want. Your dental professional recommends not eating candy, caramel, chewing gum, popcorn, and more because they can get stuck in your teeth or damage the braces. The Invisalign straighteners can easily be removed and replaced, which means that you are free to eat whatever you want.

Increased Confidence

There’s no way around it, traditional braces are unsightly. No matter what, when someone wears traditional braces your eyes will always be drawn to their teeth. They stand out so much that it makes people hesitant to smile and can even cause anxiety and embarrassment. If you are looking to correct teeth alignment without drawing attention to your mouth, Invisalign straighteners are clear and nearly invisible. That means you can wear them without detection and maintain a bright, confident smile.

Improved Oral Health

Another benefit of Invisalign over traditional braces is that you can maintain better oral health. Braces make it difficult to brush and floss correctly and this can lead to deteriorating oral health. This means that while you are trying to correct one oral problem, you may end up creating another one altogether. Because you can remove Invisalign straighteners you can continue your normal oral hygiene routine without interference.
