The Benefits of Invisalign

For adults and teenagers, the idea of having to deal with metal braces in a social setting can be rather disheartening. With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without that obvious ‘braces’ look.


Invisalign clear aligners feature various benefits that traditional braces do not. Most of these fall in two categories:

Convenience

Invisalign aligners can be taken out to eat - Unlike traditional braces, with Invisalign you can eat whatever you want, with no limitations, and without food getting stuck in your wires or brackets to embarrass you later! Just be sure to clean your teeth carefully after each meal and snack, and you’re good to go!

You can take them out to brush and floss - You can also remove your aligners to brush and floss, so your're not spending ages trying to clean around each and every nook and cranny in your wires and brackets. And again, you don’t need to worry about food debris and plaque buildup any more than someone without braces does.

You don’t have to visit us as often! - We’re always glad to see our patients, but we also know that most of them have busy lives. Making time in your schedule for adjustment appointments isn’t always easy! Since your Invisalign aligners don’t need adjustments by an orthodontist on a regular basis, you don’t have to make time in your schedule to see us quite so often. All you have to do is switch to a new set of aligners at the prescribed regular intervals.

Aesthetics

Invisalign aligners are made of BPA-free, transparent plastic. When you’re wearing them, they’re essentially invisible.

Your co-workers or your date may not even notice that you're undergoing orthodontic treatment, and you’ll be surprised in general at how many people don’t ever catch on.

And as mentioned above, your food won’t be getting caught on your brackets and wires to haunt you later!
