For many who do not have naturally straight smile, you might be considering having orthodontic work to correct it. There are many options to correct crooked teeth, some easier than others. A great alternative to invasive dental work in Invisalign. Invisalign is the latest orthodontic option for patients who want an alternative to traditional braces. Here are some great reasons to choose them over traditional braces.
Unlike traditional orthodontic braces that consist of uncomfortable metal wires, Invisalign braces are made up of gentler plastic material. Your dentist will ensure they are adjusted to fit your mouth to minimize pain and discomfort.
- Much easier to clean
Traditional braces are known to be particularly difficult to clean. This is one of the reasons why patients are discouraged from eating certain foods. With Invisalign, you can continue to clean your teeth as normal. These braces are removable which means there is no trapping of food substances in them.
- Barely noticeable
As they are made from clear plastic, Invisalign braces are barely visible and won’t impact your personal appearance. People will hardly know you’re wearing them.
- Reduced treatment period
On average, Invisalign takes around 12 months to produce the desired results. This is, of course, if your teeth are not severely damaged. Braces can sometimes take up to 2 years to straighten teeth.
- Completely removable
Invisalign are designed to be easily removable whenever you need to take them off, a special occasion for example. However, it’s recommended that you wear them for 20-22 hours a day to ensure they provide the optimum results.
- Reduced damage to teeth and gums
There are no sharp edges or protruding bits of metal that may scratch the delicate gum and cause damage.
The amazing benefits of Invisalign braces include stress-free maintenance, the ability to eat confidently and a relatively quicker period to restore a new winning smile.
