The Top 4 Benefits of Invisalign

Posted in Braces

Do you want to have a beautiful smile with straight teeth?  Are you discouraged at the thought of having a mouth full of metal braces?  Do you want to have strait teeth in a shorter amount of time?  Have no fear, Invisalign is here to help! Invisalign is a tooth straightening system using clear, plastic aligners to straighten teeth.  This system has many benefits over the traditional braces. There are 4 great benefits that Invisalign has to offer:

1)       Great Appearance – Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign is comprised of clear plastic aligners which are almost invisible.  They are even unnoticeable when you talk, unlike other retainers.

2)      Convenience – The plastic aligners are removable which is convenient for brushing and flossing without the obstruction of traditional braces.  In addition, you are unlimited on food choices as opposed to traditional braces.  For example, with traditional braces, you are not allowed to eat popcorn.  This is not a concern with Invisalign.

3)      Comfortable – Traditional braces have metal wires and brackets, which can rub the inside of your cheek and be very uncomfortable.  The plastic aligners, however, are smooth and much more comfortable than metal braces.

4)      Efficient – Traditional braces have taken up to five years for treatment.  With Invisalign, your teeth can be straightened in a fraction of the time of traditional braces.  In many cases, Invisalign treatment is completed in a year to a year and a half.

Contact your local Invisalign provider (orthodontist or dentist) and schedule an Invisalign consultation today!  Invisalign is not suitable for every case.  Your provider will be able to answer your questions and tell you if you are a good candidate for the treatment.
