Is your orthodontic journey a toss-up between regular braces and InvisalignⓇ? The following five facts may help sway you in favor of the clear plastic aligners.
No strings attached – or wires, that is!
You’ve probably heard a lot about how much of a struggle traditional braces can be. All those attached metal brackets, sharp wires, and tight bands… But InvisalignⓇ is free of all of that. Some InvisalignⓇ sets require attachment buttons on the enamel for a snug fit, but that’s nothing compared to the discomfort of a “metal mouth!”
If you don’t brush very carefully every day while wearing braces, leftover plaque can demineralize the enamel and leave behind chalky white spots and circles when your brackets come off. InvisalignⓇ, on the other hand, is removable for easy old-school brushing and flossing.
That removable feature of InvisalignⓇ is also well-loved since it allows you to eat all the foods you enjoy. Did you know that wearing regular braces could make even things like carrots, bagels, and tortilla chips off-limits?
It can be your little secret.
InvisalignⓇ is named what it is, because it’s, well, virtually invisible. No one you talk with really knows you’re wearing an orthodontic aligner unless either you told them or they were looking for it. Straighten your teeth in secrecy!
Finally have that time to get your teeth fixed!
Because InvisalignⓇ is sans all those wires and bands, maintenance and check-up visits tend to go a lot faster than traditional orthodontic appointments. You can finally fit orthodontic treatment into your busy schedule.
Reach out to your dentist or orthodontist to learn more about the great benefits of InvisalignⓇ and find out if you’re a candidate for treatment.
