Are your looking for a way to improve your smile? Are your teeth misaligned and out of position? If so, Invisalign might benefit you. Invisalign is a system that involves a series of clear plastic aligners that make slight adjustments to your teeth over time. These clear trays are developed from molds of your teeth and a completely customized treatment plan is created to give you the confident smile you deserve. So, what are the benefits of Invisalign over traditional metal braces? Keep reading to find out.
One of the biggest benefits of Invisalign over traditional braces is the comfort. The plastic aligner trays and smooth and lack the rough edges that metal braces have. They won’t cut into your gums or tongue and most times people forget they’re even wearing Invisalign.
Another benefit that Invisalign offers is decreased pain. There are many aligner trays throughout the adjustment process and each of these trays makes slight adjustments to your teeth, unlike metal braces that make major adjustments. Due to this, most Invisalign wearers reported feeling only minor to moderate tooth pain.
More Confident Smile
Let’s face it, traditional braces are unsightly and most wearers don’t feel inclined to smile big for pictures. Even clear bands don’t mitigate the glaring sight of a mouth full of metal. Thankfully, Invisalign trays are clear and this means most people cannot even tell you are wearing them. This leaves you free to smile big and confidently while your teeth are being corrected and that simply isn’t the case when compared to traditional braces.
No Dietary Restrictions
With traditional braces, there is a whole list of foods that you are unable to eat. Your doctor recommends staying away from caramels, popcorn, gum, etc. Thankfully, Invisalign trays can be removed. You take them out to eat, which means that you do not have the strict restrictions that come with regular braces. So, if caramel apples in the fall are your favorite, Invisalign will let you enjoy without the fear of popping off a bracket or gumming up your braces.
Fewer Adjustments & Office Visits
Finally, Invisalign takes less time than traditional braces to move your teeth into the desired position. That is because you are constantly making minor adjustments to your teeth. In addition, Invisalign requires less frequent office visits than standard metal braces. With regular braces, you typically visit the orthodontist every 4 weeks for a checkup. With Invisalign, that shifts to about every 6 weeks.
