What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Removable aligners are more comfortable than traditional braces. Removable aligners are custom-made for your teeth. They have smooth edges made with high-quality resin so you won’t have any jagged metal digging into your mouth.
Because of their custom fit, invisible aligners also have more precise control over straightening your teeth. During your treatment, you will receive a set of aligners that slowly adjust your teeth horizontally, vertically, and rotationally until each tooth is set in its proper place. Each of these movements is precisely timed by professionals to be the most comfortable sequence possible.
2. ALLOW FOR BETTER DENTAL HYGIENE
One of the best benefits of a removable aligner over traditional braces is it allows you to take better care of your teeth. After all, a clean mouth is a healthy mouth, and by the end of your treatment, you want the healthiest teeth possible. With traditional braces, bits of food and plaque get stuck around and inside brackets which become difficult to clean properly. If not cleaned properly, this can lead to gum disease and even tooth decay.
With Invisalign, you can remove the aligners and continue your normal dental routine. Flossing and brushing can all be done normally without the need for special equipment. You can also brush and clean the inside of your aligner to make sure no food or bacteria build up inside of it.
Crooked teeth can cause more problems than just making you self-conscious of your smile. Widely spaced or crowded teeth can raise your risk of developing gum disease.
You can also fix a dental overbite or underbite with invisible aligners. An improper bite can cause chewing issues, jaw aches, and even speech difficulties. Correcting your bite will lower your risk of cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss.
4. BOOSTS SELF-CONFIDENCE
The most popular reason that anyone straightens their teeth is for the aesthetic value. Your smile is the first thing other people notice. If you don’t feel confident about your teeth and smile, you won’t feel confident in yourself.
Another benefit of invisible aligners are they are made from clear resin to perfectly fit your teeth. This means they are practically invisible so many people won’t even know you are straightening your teeth, unlike traditional braces.
With traditional braces, you have to frequently visit an orthodontist to make sure your braces are adjusted correctly.
With invisible aligners, you won’t need to visit the dentist as frequently, and the visits will be much shorter and far less intrusive. You will need to visit between four and six weeks, but between then, you will already have a set of aligners to switch every two weeks. Because the aligners are already planned and created, you won’t need any extra dental work to make them correct your teeth.
With traditional braces, you are limited in the foods you can eat or drink, but with Invisalign, all food and drinks are permissible. With removable aligners, you don’t have to worry about what you eat.
The only food or drink you should consume with your aligners in is cold water. Otherwise, food particles can get stuck inside the aligners, causing bacteria and plaque build-up. After you are finished eating, you should consider brushing your teeth or rinsing with water before putting your aligners back in so you can avoid any food particles getting stuck between your teeth and aligner.
7. SHORTER TREATMENT PERIOD
The advantage of using invisible aligners is most treatments last about a year. Because of their invisible design, most people won’t even be aware you are wearing them.
