Invisalign is the perfect solution to straighten teeth, as they are virtually invisible and provide great results for many patients. Another great thing about Invisalign is that they don’t come with the many food restrictions and maintenance, like traditional metal braces. Instead of brackets, wires, and rubber bands, Invisalign uses clear aligners that are custom-made to fit your teeth. Every two weeks or so, you will throw away the old aligners, and use a newer, straighter set that will help your teeth gradually move into straighter positions.
Invisalign is a very popular option for adults and teens. While there are obvious perks of Invisalign (invisibility), there are many other benefits to them as well. If you are interested in Invisalign treatment and would like to schedule a consultation with a skilled orthodontist, feel free to contact us today!
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is a highly effective treatment method when it comes to improving smiles. Here are some of the benefits of Invisalign that you may not already know:
You can enhance your smile discreetly
There is no such thing as being too old for braces or aligners. While age is certainly not a factor when it comes to braces or aligners, it certainly is when it comes to how discreet one wants to be about it. Because traditional braces are so obvious, many adults and teens would much rather go with Invisalign since the aligners are virtually invisible. Some teens and adults are self-conscious about the appearance of traditional braces, which is why Invisalign is the perfect alternative, as they are not noticeable and get the job done.
There are no food restrictions
If you know anything about traditional braces, then you know that there are many different food restrictions that come with them. Traditional braces have a long list of food restrictions, such as food that is chewy, sticky, crunchy, or hard. With Invisalign, you won’t have to give up your favorite foods, ever. Why? Because every time you eat or drink, you must take off the aligners first. But remember to always brush and floss before you put your aligners back on.
Less office visits
With Invisalign, you won’t have as many appointments as you would with traditional braces. And as a busy adult or teen, that is important. Even when you do go to your appointments for Invisalign, the majority of appointments will be much quicker because it typically only requires a check up on your progress, rather than any maintenance, such as adjusting or tightening anything.
You can easily maintain your oral hygiene
Another great thing about Invisalign is that you can easily maintain your oral hygiene, as you must remove the aligners in order to brush and floss.

While there are many advantages of Invisalign, it is important to know that this treatment method is not for everyone. If you have severely misaligned teeth or a bite, then traditional braces may be more effective, as they have more control over the positioning of your teeth. However, it is best to consult with our orthodontist so he will be able to conduct a comprehensive dental exam and help you determine the best solution for you.
