Optimal Comfort, Reliable Results
When it comes to correcting malocclusion, which is another way of saying misaligned teeth, traditional braces have been the baseline treatment. With decades of success, braces have proven to be an effective way to straighten smiles.
However, traditional braces have a reputation for being uncomfortable, unattractive, and inconvenient — and it’s all thanks to the metal wires and brackets.
Fortunately, you don’t have to settle with these disadvantages to capture the same results. Invisalign features a new way to straighten teeth that’s nearly invisible, comfortable, and takes less time to complete than traditional braces.
Feel Like Yourself During Treatment
In regards to traditional braces, most patients find having something permanently attached to their smile to be uncomfortable. The wires, brackets, and rubber bands can irritate or cut your tongue, lips, or cheeks.
On the other hand, Invisalign aligners are created from transparent, flexible SmartTrack® material that’s custom-fitted to your smile, so they’re guaranteed to be more comfortable than treatment with traditional braces. You can also remove your aligners at any time.
Another frequent strife that patients have about traditional braces is how challenging they can be to keep clean. Pieces of food can get lodged in the brackets and wires, which can be tricky to remove using a toothbrush. More often than not, people need to purchase specialized tools to keep their braces from accumulating plaque.
For your convenience, cleaning Invisalign aligners is incredibly easy. Whenever you need to brush your teeth, you’ll remove the aligners and clean your smile like usual. While the aligners themselves need cleaning, you can gently brush them for the desired effect. Invisalign makes your nightly hygiene routine easier, more natural, and less time consuming than traditional braces.
Enjoy All of Your Favorite Foods
In some instances, treating your smile with traditional braces requires you to give up eating some of your favorite foods. This could include foods that are sticky, hard, or can get stuck in the braces — and even damage them. Your dentist will probably recommend avoiding foods such as nuts, popcorn, gum, and steak.
When it comes to eating with Invisalign, all you need to do is remove the aligners, and you can enjoy your favorite meal. Removing your aligners before eating is a requirement because you don’t want to worry about damaging them or getting food stuck. After you’re done eating, simply brush and floss your teeth, and reinsert your aligners.
