7 Reasons to Choose Invisalign (Clear Plate) Aligners!
Would you like to be able to straighten your teeth without braces? You can find out from your orthodontist whether you are a candidate for Invisalign brackets. As the name suggests, these are almost invisible aligners that gradually move the teeth into a straighter smile. If you’ve been avoiding orthodontic treatment because you hate the idea of metal brackets on your teeth, you owe it to yourself to ask about plaques.
Read on to find out why more and more patients are choosing Invisalign for tooth correction.
Because the tooth aligners are removable, you can continue to eat your favorite foods during your Invisalign treatment. However, you need to make sure you brush and floss after meals to avoid staining your clear aligners. In contrast, people with braces should avoid eating sticky or hard-to-chew foods like caramel. Otherwise, there is a risk of damaging the wires and brackets.
Your dentist recommends clear dental aligners for patients who feel hesitant about metal wires and brackets on their teeth. In fact, Invisalign is too subtle to go unnoticed by most of your friends, family, and co-workers.
We understand that you may not want to draw attention to your orthodontic treatment, so we recommend making a consultation appointment with your dentist to talk to Invisalign.
Invisalign aligners are tailored to your smile so they don’t feel (or look) bulky. Therefore, these plaques do not irritate your gums like traditional braces. As Invisalign puts pressure on the teeth to align them optimally, you will experience temporary dental discomfort for a day or two. However, most of our patients adapt quickly to their new plates.
4.Less Risk of Tooth Discoloration
Dental plaque likes to hide between brackets and wires, so some patients see a discoloration of their teeth after the braces are removed. Removing your braces after years of treatment can be disappointing only to discover tooth stains. Tooth discoloration is just one of the many reasons why patients choose Invisalign over traditional braces.
5.Easy Oral Hygiene Routine
Because Invisalign is removable, you can continue with your normal oral hygiene routine. People with braces, on the other hand, have to adopt a more comprehensive routine to protect their oral health.
For example, when wearing braces, you need to thread the floss under the braces to remove plaque and food particles between your teeth. This process must be repeated for each tooth to maneuver around each bonded bracket.
Flossing is easy with Invisalign. Remove your clear aligners and floss as normal. It is not unusual for people with braces to stop flossing because it is so troublesome. As a result, they may be at greater risk for cavities and gum disease. By choosing Invisalign, you avoid all this by continuing your normal oral hygiene routine.
6.Fewer Visits to the Orthodontist
While braces require patients to visit the orthodontist to tighten their braces, Invisalign patients are given multiple sets of aligners that they can replace on their own. Invisalign patients still have routine orthodontist appointments to see how things are going, but these are not usually as frequent as a brace tightening appointment every 4-8 weeks.
Many people assume that Invisalign is more expensive than braces, but in most cases the costs are comparable. Most major dental insurance plans help cover the cost, making this a cost-effective option for a wide range of patients.
