At last, your dentist has convinced you that your misaligned bite can be corrected. You’ve finally gained the courage to make some lasting decisions about your smile. But should you go with traditional braces, or Invisalign®? After all, there are a lot of conflicting opinions on which orthodontic method is best.
Although braces do have their advantages, here are six reasons why you should consider Invisalign®:
They’re invisible to others. If you’re shy about your appearance or – for adults – are in a profession where visible braces might be a detriment, clear aligners may be the perfect choice for you.
You can eat and drink whatever you like. Remove your aligners during meals, and then insert them again when you’re done. Simple.
Brushing and flossing is easier. It’s a challenge to clean teeth well when you wear traditional metal braces. With Invisalign®, you briefly remove your aligners to brush and floss, and then put them in again.
Your mouth will be less sore. Traditional braces have more hardware that can cause mouth soreness. Invisible aligners are more comfortable overall.
You’ll need fewer visits to your orthodontist. With Invisalign®, you receive new aligners every few weeks. Aside from this, you don’t need constant adjustment on hardware and wiring. This means fewer dental visits.
You’ll have a beautiful result. You won’t have to worry about stained teeth after you’re done with the process. Just follow your dentist’s instructions to the letter, and get ready for lots of compliments!
