Invisalign is known as a compelling alternative to braces as a way to straighten your teeth and improve your smile. However, just because it’s an alternative to braces doesn’t make it less expensive. In fact, it’s quite a financial investment. Read on to learn about the benefits of using Invisalign for yourself before taking the leap.
Creating Beautiful Smiles of All Shapes & Sizes
From an aesthetic perspective, Invisalign aligners are better looking than metal braces. Many children and adults want the dental benefits of metal braces but are uncomfortable with their appearance. Invisalign is designed to offer the best of both worlds. Not only do they correct misaligned or crooked teeth, but they’re virtually invisible. Your friends, family, and colleagues won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
Invisalign also offer you more flexibility with food compared to metal braces. This is because they are are removed at mealtimes. With Invisalign, you will still be able to eat your favorite foods while continuing your treatment. With metal braces, however, you will likely have to make some sacrifices since certain foods such as caramel, popcorn, and more get stuck on them.
With added flexibility, Invisalign aligners are more comfortable than metal braces. They are made with plastic rather than metal, which can irritate your gums or cheeks. In addition, the aligners are custom-fitted to each patient’s teeth. They are truly yours and will fit naturally in your mouth.
Finally, Invisalign aligners make brushing and flossing your teeth extremely easy. Just like the flexibility with food, you remove your the aligners prior to brushing. You are able to keep up your brushing and flossing habits without any added difficulty. This isn’t the case with metal braces, as bace wearers have more metal objects to brush and floss around.
