One of the biggest reasons why Invisalign is a more popular orthodontic treatment than traditional metal braces is their nearly invisible appearance. These clear aligners help patients avoid noticeable shiny brackets and wires while straightening their smiles. However, their nearly invisible appearance is only one of the great benefits this revolutionary orthodontic service offers! Here are five other things to enjoy about Invisalign other than their appearance.
1.) There Are No Diet Restrictions
With traditional braces, you need to avoid certain foods to keep your brackets and wires safe. With Invisalign, you can continue to eat all your favorite foods without restriction! Simply remove your aligners, enjoy your meal, then give your teeth a quick brush before popping your aligners back into place. As long as you continue to meet your wear time and brush your teeth right after eating, you shouldn’t have to change your diet at all while undergoing Invisalign.
2.) Clear Aligners Are Removable for Easy Cleaning
Another benefit of removable aligners is easy maintenance. You won’t need any special tools to brush or floss like you would with traditional braces. Instead, you can just take your Invisalign aligners out and clean your smile as normal! Not only does this make daily life with Invisalign easier, but you’ll be less likely to develop oral health issues like cavities during treatment.
3.) Enjoy a More Comfortable Treatment
Metal wires and braces are notorious for scraping the soft tissues in the mouth. Alternatively, Invisalign aligners are made of a single piece of smooth, biocompatible plastic that will simply glide past your cheeks, lips, and tongue. Even though Invisalign can cause some discomfort (as all orthodontic treatments do), countless studies show that on average, patients report less soreness with Invisalign than with traditional metal braces.
4.) You Could See Results Faster with Invisalign
Orthodontic treatment timelines will vary from patient to patient depending on numerous factors. However, in general, Invisalign can help patients achieve results faster than traditional metal braces. Metal braces have an average treatment time between one and three years, while a typical Invisalign treatment will be 12 months or less!
5.) There Are No Interruptions to Your Daily Life
Invisalign clear aligners are designed to blend into your current lifestyle, not distract from it. With traditional metal braces, you need to adjust your diet, oral hygiene habits, appearance, and other parts of your life. With Invisalign, you can continue your routine lifestyle as normal, including playing sports and woodwind or brass instruments!
