Advantages of Having Clear Braces
Invisalign is an alternative treatment to the more traditional braces. It involves the use of virtually invisible aligners which are worn to gradually push your teeth back into place. These work in much the same way as traditional braces, as they gradually move your teeth into the desired position. They have a number of benefits, including:
Many people are embarrassed to get braces because the brackets and wires make it quite obvious. This is especially true for older people – I mean, how many fifty year olds are comfortable walking around with a teenagers mouth? Invisalign is next to invisible, and people will not notice that you are wearing something on your teeth unless they look closely.
This means that it all of a sudden becomes much easier to eat, clean your teeth, and be comfortable if the pain just becomes too much. Taking your aligner out regularly doesn’t pose any serious problems, as long as you replace it within a specified time frame.
Even though most people won’t even notice that you are wearing Invisalign aligners, you can take them out on special occasions to make sure of this. Don’t worry about braces ruining all of your photos for the next two years: Invisalign means that this is no longer a factor.
Safe and Gentle On Your Mouth
Traditional braces are made of wire with metal brackets. It is easy to see how these could be dangerous, especially if your orthodontist is a little careless and leaves protruding bits of wire. Invisalign aligners are soft and won’t damage your mouth at all, even if you get hit while playing sport or during an accident.
Easier to Clean Your Teeth
Traditional metal braces can contribute to things like tooth decay and demineralisation. They can make it hard to clean or floss your teeth, leading to buildups of plaque or tartar. However, Invisalign aligners can be removed every time you need to clean your teeth to make sure that you remove all foreign material. Your teeth are no more at risk when using Invisalign than when you aren’t.
The Results are Predictable
Since Invisalign treatment is computerised and somewhat predictable, it comes with a set time-frame and cost. This is beneficial to everyone: it allows the dentist to plan their upcoming time and it lets you understand how long you will need to have the treatment for.
