5 Top Benefits of Invisalign Over Traditional Braces

You are dreaming of straighter teeth. 

What if you could have straighter teeth without using metal braces? How would you feel about an alternative option?

There is a product better than braces out there for your teeth. Keep reading to learn five of the top benefits of Invisalign:

1. Eat Everything

There are no dietary restrictions with Invisalign since you can remove them. A big drawback of metal braces is that some foods are off-limits. Eating the restricted foods can cause brackets to break off and lengthen the amount of time you need to wear the braces.

With Invisalign, you can eat sweet foods like taffy or caramel and healthy foods like apples and corn on the cob without difficulty. By simply removing your Invisalign trays, no food will be off-limits. 

2. Comfort

No painful installation. No painful tightening appointments. No painful removal of the braces. 

Invisalign is a lightweight and comfortable option to achieve the same results as braces. If you are active and worried about potential damage to your braces and mouth, you can remove the trays during that activity. There will be no need to carry extra wax to prevent any potential wire or bracket irritation to your mouth.

3. Shorter Treatment Time

One of the advantages of Invisalign is the shortened treatment time in comparison to metal braces. This means fewer appointments to schedule as well. Invisalign typically takes between 12 to 18 months depending on what adjustments need to be made.

This is important because regardless of your age, Invisalign is something that you will be wearing for a short time. The treatment plan is all computerized to speed up the time it takes to move your teeth where they need to be.

4. Cleaner Than Braces

Another one of the advantages of Invisalign is how clean you can keep your teeth during the process. It is difficult to properly clean between the wires and metal brackets. This can lead to tooth decay or cavities from simply not being able to clean them with a normal toothbrush.

Since you can remove your Invisalign trays, you can continue cleaning your teeth the same way. This is important in the prevention of any cavities or gum diseases. You are also able to clean the trays, which will prevent bacteria from growing in them. 

5. One of the Best Benefits of Invisalign: Invisible 

The appearance of Invisalign is barely noticeable to others, unlike metal braces. This is a draw to people of any age because you will be able to achieve the desired look for your teeth without the undesirable look of metal braces.

You will no longer worry about having any food accidentally stuck in your teeth either.
