Invisalign takes a unique approach to treating orthodontic concerns. From correcting spacing issues to improving one’s bite, wearing Invisalign can transform your oral health and the appearance of your smile.
Here are five great benefits that come with choosing Invisalign.
Invisalign treatment consists of wearing clear orthodontic appliances called aligners. Fitting over teeth like a retainer, these appliances are incredibly discreet. There are no obvious metal wires or brackets to draw attention to your smile. Adults enjoy wearing Invisalign because it is an inconspicuous alternative to conventional braces.
Easy Oral Hygiene
Practicing proper oral hygiene is easy with Invisalign because aligners are removable. This means that those who wear Invisalign can floss and brush without obstruction.
Those wearing conventional orthodontia have to take great care to thread dental floss under archwires between each tooth. They also have to brush carefully to ensure that all debris is removed without disturbing fixed orthodontic appliances. Oral hygiene with traditional braces can take significantly longer.
No Dietary Restrictions
Those who wear conventional braces might have to alter their dietary habits during treatment. Certain foods, especially sticky and chewy items, can become trapped beneath orthodontic appliances.
When it comes to Invisalign treatment, there are no dietary restrictions because patients remove their aligners for meals. This means that Invisalign wearers enjoy a variety of foods without difficulty or discomfort.
Invisalign’s aligners are constructed from smooth plastic. This plastic has no sharp edges that might scrape against or irritate soft oral tissue. Since aligners have smooth surfaces, dental wax is not necessary to protect soft tissue from irritation either.
Improved Oral Health
After Invisalign treatment is complete, patients enjoy improvements in the appearance of their smiles and their oral health. Having a straighter smile can reduce your risks of developing gum disease, tooth wear, and dental caries.
