The Benefits of Invisalign® Versus Metal Braces
Thanks to advancements in orthodontic dentistry it is now easier than ever for dental patients seeking to align their teeth discreetly to do so using Invisalign. If you are in need of orthodontic treatment and you don’t want to have to deal with metal brackets or uncomfortable wires in your mouth, then Invisalign would be the best option for you. Unlike traditional braces Invisalign allows you to straighten your teeth while continuing to live your daily life. Also, because they are removable you will not experience any dietary restrictions as well as other forms of discomfort.
The Discreet Look
The biggest reason why so many people choose Invisalign® is because of the way it looks. Invisible aligners are clear and unlike traditional braces it is more difficult to notice them. Also, with traditional braces it’s more than likely that food will get stuck int between your metal brackets. However, because Invisalign® can be removed before you eat you won’t have to deal with food getting stuck in your aligners. Also, this makes it easier to eat and floss and then insert your invisible aligners back into your mouth without dealing with food getting stuck in them.
Traditional metal braces can oftentimes poke and irritate your gums, tongue, and cheeks, which can make them difficult to get adjusted to wearing. Also, your teeth may hurt or be in pain every time you have your braces tightened or adjusted. Your Invisalign invisible aligners are designed to comfortably fit on your teeth and allow them to be worn without any kind of discomfort. Also, Invisalign is so comfortable that the patient often forgets that they are wearing them which allows them to continue to live their life without any kinds of restrictions or discomfort.
If you are wearing traditional braces, then you don’t have control over them in terms of when you can take them off. In fact, you need a professional dentist to put them on or remove them. Meaning that you now have dietary restrictions because you can’t eat certain foods. However, if you are undergoing Invisalign treatment you will have some more control over your orthodontic treatment. This is because you can remove your Invisalign aligners so you can consume certain foods also you can take a break from wearing them if you want to give your teeth a little rest.
