4 Ways Invisalign Is Better Than Regular Braces

Posted in Braces

You may have heard of Invisalign as a barely-there method for straightening teeth. But how does it really compare with classic metal brackets and wires? Here are the four main advantages that make Invisalign a superior choice.

Invisalign Looks Better

Invisalign’s biggest appeal is the fact that it doesn’t look like you’re wearing braces. This spares you a year or two of trying to hide your teeth whenever you smile or laugh. It’s also a great way to gradually improve your oral health without anyone even noticing that you’re having orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign Makes Home Care a Breeze

The Invisalign system is a series of clear plastic trays that you can easily remove for cleaning. You can wash the trays in under a minute and then brush and floss your teeth as usual. This saves a lot of time compared with flossing around wires!

Invisalign Lets You Eat Anything You Want

Because the trays are removable, you don’t have to avoid the same foods you would if you were wearing regular braces. Metal wires can be damaged by chewy, hard, or crunchy foods, but those things are all safe to eat when you can just pop out the orthodontic trays.

Invisalign Can Fix Small Problems Fast

Would you like to just straighten a few front teeth? If you get metal braces, you might have to wear them on all of your teeth. But if you qualify for short-term Invisalign, you’ll see results quicker since it focuses on the problem areas first.

The Invisalign method does have its perks, but it doesn’t work for everyone. To find out which orthodontic option is right for you, schedule a consultation with a local orthodontist.
