Metal braces have been straightening people’s teeth for decades. While traditional braces do a fine job, they draw a lot of unwanted attention to your teeth because of the metal brackets and wires that cover your smile. With Invisalign, you will have an orthodontic treatment performed with clear aligners that won’t be distracting to your smile.

What is Invisalign?

Instead of wires and brackets that cover your teeth in metal, Invisalign incorporates removable, clear, mouthguard-like aligners to properly straighten your teeth. The aligners look like transparent mouthguards that slide over your lower and upper teeth. They are nearly impossible to see, so there’s nothing to take away from your beautiful smile. Because Invisalign aligners can be removed, you can eat the foods that you enjoy eating and brush and floss without the worry of food being caught in your brackets or wires. You can also remove your aligners for special events or business events.

Benefits of Invisalign

  • Invisalign is comfortable. The aligners are made of durable plastic that is easy on your mouth. There will be a little discomfort when you put in your aligners for the first time, but it is only temporary.
  • Your Invisalign aligners will also protect you against clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth.
  • Cleaning your teeth when using Invisalign is a huge benefit. Cleaning your teeth is much easier because you can remove your Invisalign aligners. You can also remove your aligners when you eat to make sure that food doesn’t get caught in them. Because you can take them out during meals, you can clean your teeth and make sure all food is removed before you put your aligners back in.
  • With Invisalign, no one will be able to tell that you are having orthodontic treatment because the aligners are clear, which makes them hard to see. When you straighten your teeth using traditional metal braces, the pesky brackets and wires not only distract from your smile, but they also can get caught on your lip or cheeks, causing pain.

Invisalign vs Braces

Traditional metal braces have been the orthodontic standard for years, and people have just had to deal with the negatives that come along with them. With Invisalign, you’ll no longer have to deal with the inconvenience of cleaning out food that is stuck in the brackets of your braces. Also, the days will be gone where a wire comes loose or a bracket falls off and you have to make unexpected trips to the dentist’s office! With Invisalign, you can pleasantly and invisibly straighten your teeth!
