Benefits of Invisalign
If you have misaligned or crooked teeth, not only are they unsightly, they can be hard to clean. This means that you could be at risk of developing periodontal disease. So, what are you going to do? Braces can adjust your teeth so that they will be straight and easy to clean, but many people hate the look of metal braces. In most cases, though, the benefits of Invisalign clear braces can equal the results that you will get from metal braces.
The benefits of Invisalign include:
- A Better Appearance
Metal braces are indisputably unattractive, and very noticeable. Because Invisalign braces are barely discernible, it can actually look as though you are not even wearing braces.
- Comfort and Easy Cleaning
You can take your Invisalign braces out – you definitely cannot do that with metal braces. With Invisalign, you can take them out to eat, drink or clean your teeth. This means that you can eat whatever you want. This is one of the biggest benefits of Invisalign over metal braces.
Metal braces can break, and scratch your gums and the insides of your cheeks. Then you need to get to your dentist ASAP. Invisalign clear braces have no metal bits, no sharp edges, and no wires. This means that you do not have to worry about being in pain due to breakage.
- Faster Treatment
No one wants to have to wear braces for years, but this is often what happens with metal braces. Sometimes, treatment with metal braces can even take up to five years. When you are considering the benefits of Invisalign clear braces over metal braces, think about this – you will not have to wear them for more than 18 months, and often your treatment can be completed in as little as a year.
Overall, the benefits of Invisalign clear braces are far superior to those of metal braces. So if your malocclusion is not so severe that metal braces are required, you should definitely consider Invisalign.
