Invisalign is a popular alternative to conventional orthodontia. This treatment option presents patients unique advantageous such as improved comfort and a discreet appearance. Straightening your teeth has numerous health and wellness benefits including a reduced risk for common oral health conditions such as periodontal disease and tooth decay.
Following are five benefits to choosing Invisalign.
Invisalign is Discreet
Invisalign treatment involves wearing clear braces made from plastic. Noticeable archwires or brackets are not utilized in the Invisalign treatment system. This means that straightening your teeth is virtually undetectable to others. Because of the discreet nature of Invisalign, this treatment option is ideal for many adults.
Like conventional braces, Invisalign is an effective treatment option for correcting the spacing and positioning of teeth. Those who complete Invisalign treatment enjoy straighter smiles and healthier occlusions. The positions of gapped teeth as well as crooked, overlapped, and rotated teeth can be improved by wearing Invisalign.
Enjoy Comfort with Invisalign
Patients who wear Invisalign report that their treatment is very comfortable – especially when compared to traditional braces. This is because the edges of Invisalign braces are smooth and do not scrape against soft oral tissue. By minimizing irritation with its smooth construction, patients do not have to rely on dental wax to maintain comfort.
Invisalign’s oral appliances are removable. This is a treatment benefit unique to Invisalign. Since Invisalign appliances are removable, patients enjoy the ability to eat meals and clean their teeth without obstruction.
Improved Oral Health
Completing Invisalign treatment will improve your oral health. Having your teeth aligned to straighter positions reduces the risks for developing gingivitis and dental caries. This is because properly positioned and spaced teeth are easier to clean through brushing and flossing.
Although Invisalign offers unique benefits to patients, there are still instances where conventional orthodontia is a more appropriate treatment option. If you are interested in evaluating your orthodontic treatment options, we recommend scheduling a consultation with our dentist. Our practice offers both Invisalign and traditional braces.
