Tired of smiling with your mouth closed due to crooked teeth, but just can’t handle years of metal braces? You may not have to. Invisalign clear plastic aligners can correct more orthodontic flaws than you think, without the hassle or discomfort of traditional wires and brackets. Over 8 million adults and teens have turned to Invisalign for their perfect smile. Here are 6 great reasons you should consider Invisalign too.
1. They’re discrete
Let’s face it, metal braces are an eyesore. But when you’re wearing the clear alignment trays, no one can tell. In fact, lots of celebrities have attained their Hollywood smiles via Invisalign, including Justin Bieber, Tom Cruise, and Serena Williams.
2. No pain
Invisalign’s clear plastic aligners are gentle on your mouth. Sans metal wire or brackets, you don’t have to worry about scratching, rubbing, or poking to your soft oral tissue. Invisalign aligners are soft and smooth and adjusted to fit your mouth perfectly.
Invisalign is also more comfortable since there are no wires to tighten. With braces, there are several times during your treatment when wires must be changed for tighter ones to shift your teeth into position. You may experience a mild initial pressure each time you change to a new set of aligners, but any discomfort is minimal and temporary.
3. Eat what you please
Because you remove the plastic aligners to eat, there are no dietary restrictions. Enjoy corn on the cob, carrots, popcorn, even sugarless gum.
4. Uncompromised oral care
Because Invisalign trays are removable, teeth can still be thoroughly brushed and flossed. With traditional metal braces, food often gets trapped in the brackets or spots in the teeth where they cannot be removed. Flossing is also not possible with traditional metal braces.
5. Perfect for all ages and most issues
The Invisalign system is an ideal solution for both adults and teens and can fix nearly all common teeth-straightening and bite issues, including:
- Open bites
- Crowded teeth
- Protruding teeth
6. Fewer trips to the dentist or orthodontist
Generally, metal braces require adjustments every few weeks. Invisalign trays are worn every 2-3 weeks, often we can provide a few sets at a time, along with instructions as to when they need to be changed.
