As a logical evolution of an existing treatment, Invisalign has made advances in all the right places. It has taken the ugly steel brace and made it practically invisible. It has removed the need to cement it onto teeth and has made it easier to manage and clean. All those things elevate this tooth straightening treatment above all others.
There are three main benefits of Invisalign. They are the clear construction, comfort and flexibility. Let’s take a look at each.
Invisalign is clear
The clear plastic construction means Invisalign aligners are almost invisible. Unless someone looked very closely, or knew you very well, they would be practically undetectable.
Considering the alternative is a pair of stainless steel wires running across your teeth for all of the world to see, it’s no wonder Invisalign is so popular as a tooth straightening treatment!
Invisalign is comfortable
While comfort is a subjective term, Invisalign aligners are much more comfortable than traditional braces. There are no metal brackets, no cementing to teeth, no potential discomfort from irritation from the steel wire and no frustration when things get stuck in them.
Invisalign uses a series of aligners designed specifically for your mouth. Changed every two weeks, they gradually straighten teeth to create a fantastic smile you can be proud of.
Invisalign is flexible
One of the major benefits of this alignment treatment is the inherent flexibility of it. Aligners are not affixed to teeth, they are not set in place. They can be removed and they can be cleaned. That makes it a simple task to clean them and maintain a good oral hygiene regimen.
It also means you’re not limited to what you can eat like you are with traditional braces!
There are other benefits to using Invisalign, but we think these three are the most significant ones.
The main issue with braces is that they disrupt your way of life for so long that it puts people off using them. Invisalign offers a practical alternative that removes most of those negative points, addresses them and offers a much better solution that is much easier to live with.
