Whether you’re looking at orthodontics for yourself or your teenager, Invisalign aligners might be a viable treatment option over conventional braces or Brius.
Invisalign aligners are clear aligners that you wear on your teeth for 1-2 weeks before moving to a new aligner. They are suited for some but not all types of cases, depending on the complexity of your case.
If you are eligible for getting Invisalign treatment, you might be wondering: What are the benefits? Keep reading to find out!
The most obvious benefit of Invisalign is that the aligners are made of clear material. There are no brackets or wires to deal with when using Invisalign aligners, which is a great option (when available) for patients to smile with confidence during their orthodontic treatment.
MINIMAL ORTHODONTIC EMERGENCIES
Another benefit of Invisalign is that you are less likely to have orthodontic emergencies.
Brackets and wires on conventional braces can break – and it’s not always easy to find time in your schedule to get into your orthodontist’s office for a replacement.
Invisalign aligners are strong and much less likely to break, so no emergency visits to the orthodontist!
BETTER DENTAL HYGIENE
Unlike conventional braces, you can take off your Invisalign aligners. This allows you to brush and floss your teeth without obstacles. Your dental hygiene will be better for it!
Bonus: without brackets bonding to your teeth, you can avoid staining around the bonded area.
NO FOOD RESTRICTIONS
Conventional braces will require you to avoid popcorn, chewy candy, gum, etc. to ensure you don’t cause any unnecessary damage to your brackets. Invisalign aligners don’t require these types of restrictions as you should always take out your aligners to eat. As always, listen to your doctor about the foods that are bad for good tooth health.
FEWER VISITS TO THE DENTIST’S OFFICE
Invisalign uses 3D technology to map out your treatment through to the end. This allows your orthodontist to give you multiple aligners from the get-go. As mentioned earlier in this article, you will wear a clear aligner on your teeth for 1-2 weeks before moving to a new one. Unlike conventional braces which require you to visit the office to have them adjusted.
