Several questions come to your mind when it comes to deciding between traditional braces and Invisalign. It’s time to learn more about the advantages of using Invisalign® aligners:
Clear aligners are almost invisible: With Invisalign®, you will not have to be stressed about anyone noticing the wires or brackets when you smile. This is because the trays are transparent. It is a good option for teens and adults as you can smile confidently.
Patients can play sports or musical instruments properly: With Invisalign® aligners, you can continue playing sports or musical instruments. Using a protective mouthguard to protect your teeth and removing your aligners before you play is the recommended process. Keep your aligners in a sanitary case and put them back on once you finish.
No food restrictions: When you get traditional braces, there are several food items that you can’t consume. Nothing is stopping you from enjoying your favourite desserts or sticky foods when you opt for Invisalign®. Just remove your aligners and eat and drink anything, but remember to brush your teeth and then put them back on.
Removable aligners make it easy to brush and floss to maintain proper oral hygiene: Brushing and flossing your teeth when you wear braces can be challenging. But as Invisalign® is easily removable, you must brush your teeth to remove any existing food or bacteria before putting your aligners back.
Painless and fast procedure: Traditional braces are generally painful and time-consuming – usually taking two years or more to complete. However, as Invisalign® is a non-invasive technique that is known for its high level of comfort, it is practically painless. Moreover, the computer-aided design (CAD) dental technology makes it quick and accurate.
Invisalign® aligners help you with crooked teeth or other oral problems, giving your confidence an immediate boost. With the endless list of Invisalign®’s advantages, people of all age groups are opting for them to align their teeth. As Invisalign® is high on comfort, you can wear them for almost 20 to 22 hours a day. Invisalign® aligners also liberate you from the hassles of visiting your orthodontist every other month. Unlike traditional braces, aligners do not require frequent dentist visits and give you time to carry on with your regular activities. We also offer other cosmetic dentistry services, such as botox and lip fillers and teeth whitening.
