Misaligned or crooked teeth can ruin not only your smile and confidence but your health too. Cleaning the teeth becomes more difficult, thus increasing the risk of periodontal disease, and gum and bone damage. Braces are the easiest way to correct misaligned teeth but they come with a myriad of issues of their own.
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign is not noticeable and decidedly more attractive. Because they’re removable, Invisalign is also easier to take care of. You can simply take them out and brush them down before brushing your teeth, then replace the aligners. Not only is this far simpler and hassle-free than brushing your teeth with metal braces, but Invisalign is also less likely to cause cavities or damage your teeth like traditional braces often do.
Unlike traditional braces which must remain in place until professionally removed, Invisalign is easy to take out which also means fewer food restrictions. Fancy a piece of cake? Simply remove the aligners before eating and place them back in.
Because of their design, Invisalign is also safer than conventional metal braces because they don’t contain any wire or protruding bits of metal. This lowers the risk of punctures and scratches on the inside of your mouth and gums. Invisalign also don’t lead to demineralization or decaying teeth like traditional metal braces.
And if that’s not enough, treatment with the Invisalign braces is noticeably shorter than with metal braces. Traditionally, you’d expect the treatment to take as many as 5 years but with Invisalign, you can enjoy a straight and radiant smile within less than a year and a half!
