Top Reasons to Choose Invisalign

Invisalign is a treatment for orthodontic work that uses transparent, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth. There are many benefits of Invisalign over braces such as less discomfort, no metal wires or brackets near your cheeks which can cause food to get stuck in them, and then you have bacteria growing on the wire from where it was inserted into your gums. The other benefit is that there’s no pain associated with getting Invisalign put on because all you do is pop out one set of aligners and pop in another set for each week.

As many of you likely know, Invisalign is the revelatory upgrade to many orthodontic patients’ quality of life. While they’ve only come into use 17 years ago, Invisalign has already become one of the most popular Orthodontic treatments available, treating over 30% of adult patients, and nearly 10% of teens.

Standard Braces Vs Invisalign

While standard braces are going to be less expensive, such as price, consistent irremovable pressure that is necessary for some severe cases, standard braces also come with complications, discomfort, and severe inconveniences for the patient, such as difficulty eating foods, difficulty brushing and flossing teeth,  monthly trips back to the orthodontist for adjustments, difficulty brushing and flossing teeth, and of course discomfort while eating. All this can last anywhere between twelve and thirty-six months.

On the contrary, Invisalign lets you keep a natural smile during treatment as the aligners are completely translucent making them indiscernible from your natural teeth. That discreteness might perhaps be the most well known advantage of Invisalign over standard braces(It is in the name, after all). However, this is only one among many advantages:

Removable to simplify eating, brushing, and flossing during your treatment. 

  • While Invisalign needs to be worn 22 hours out of the day, it is still made to be removed during meals and while brushing and flossing.

Invisalign treatment is generally faster than standard braces

  • While the length of treatment varies based on the individual and their dental hygiene, braces, as mentioned earlier, can take from one to three years to complete treatment. On the flipside, Invisalign takes from 6 months to 2 years of treatment.

With Invisalign, you only need to go to the orthodontist once every three months:

  • Instead of going into the orthodontist office every month to get braces tightened, you simply swap to the next set of aligners your dentist or orthodontist has scheduled for you.
