Everyone has a dream of getting a straight and beautiful smile. Unfortunately, many people suffer from having crooked or misaligned teeth. Traditional metal braces were the only option to align the teeth. It is very effective but is fairly visible. That visibility often prevents adults from undergoing braces treatment. Thankfully, there is a better method to straighten your teeth i.e, Invisalign. You may be wondering about the benefits of Invisalign. Many choose this treatment over traditional braces because of its advantages.
The appearance of the braces is what stops people from undergoing treatment for mal-aligned teeth. Traditional braces are very effective at creating beautiful smiles but they are extremely visible. The benefits of Invisalign treatment is that it is practically invisible. In fact, most people wouldn’t even know that you are wearing anything to your teeth.
Everything is computerized, your treatment plan is scheduled at the beginning so it can predict the duration of the treatment. The computerized outcome will give you a clear idea of your treatment progress right from the beginning till the end. It allows you to see the end result and how impressive your new smile will be.
Traditional braces are directly bonded to your teeth so it is not removable and maintaining good oral hygiene is a task with the braces. Invisible aligners are entirely removable. You can simply remove aligners by yourself while eating, brushing, and put them back on when you are done. Hence, there are no eating restrictions with the Invisalign.
One of the main complaints regarding the traditional braces includes food and debris getting stuck between wires and brackets. Any food that is stuck around the braces can decompose and smell, leading to bad breath. Invisalign however can be easily removed so that you can clean your teeth normally. Simply remove your aligners and brush and floss whenever needed, your aligners also can be cleaned.
With the traditional braces, patients will have an issue with pokey wires that bother their cheek or lips. However, with Invisalign treatment, pokey wires or brackets are not a concern at all. It is a painless experience as it has a smooth surface.
With the traditional braces, regular appointments are required to maintain, tighten or replace broken brackets. But with the invisible aligners, patients can take all sets of aligners with them so that they don’t have to visit the dentist on monthly basis.
