Everyone wants a straight smile, but many are unwilling to have a “metal mouth” for up to a full year during treatment. Adults especially would rather settle for crooked teeth than undergo the traditional braces method. The creation of the clear aligner method, Invisalign, has made it possible for more people to achieve their dream smile without the burden of metal braces. Invisalign is becoming increasingly popular with dentists and the public because of the ease of use, great results, and noninvasive nature. Continue reading for a few of the fantastic benefits of this clear aligner straightening treatment.
You Do Not Have to Change Your Diet
One of the biggest pains of braces is the food restrictions. During traditional braces treatment, you are instructed to avoid foods that may harm the metal, such as chips, apples, and sticky candy. During the Invisalign treatment, you remove the aligners each time you eat. So, your diet does not have to change at all during the treatment. Just pop them out, eat, brush, and pop them right back in!
No Metal Mouth
You can probably guess that having metal in your mouth 24/7 is not the most comfortable thing in the world. The wires and brackets can irritate the soft tissue in your mouth and make the process painful at times. With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about any of this. The smooth plastic is designed to sit comfortably in your mouth at all times.
Many would argue that the most significant benefit to Invisalign is that it is almost invisible to others. The clear aligners mold around your teeth to create a seamless look. As an adult or old teen, metal braces can harm confidence because of increased attention drawn to your mouth. Invisalign eliminates extra attention and increases confidence during daily life.
Your Oral Health Will Not Suffer
Traditional braces do wonders for creating a straight smile, but your oral health can suffer during the treatment. The metal brackets and wires used to move your teeth can be tricky to brush and floss around. The difficulty reaching nooks and crannies in your teeth can lead to yellowing, gum issues, and cavities after treatment. With Invisalign, the removable trays allow you to brush and floss as usual.
