1. The Gear Is Nearly Invisible
There won’t be a maze of metal on display in your mouth. That’s because this orthodontic technique utilizes clear (nearly invisible) plastic aligners to move your teeth into better position. No one will ever know that you are in the midst of a major orthodontic treatment, unless you decide to share your secret with them.
2. Invisalign Trays Are Removable
Remember, after having old-school metal braces placed in your mouth, there is no getting free from them, until your treatment is completed after 2-3 long years. You just have to deal with it in order to get the smile you want. Invisalign aligners won’t be like that at all. You can take them out for meals, and really any time you feel the need as long as you wear them 22 hours a day. This makes for a much more tolerable process.
3. No Lifestyle Disruptions
Braces require a big commitment of time and energy. Not so with clear aligners. With Invisalign, you won’t have to schedule time away from your job to get orthodontic tune-up adjustments each month. Instead, you help move things along by switching out your aligners for the next ones in the series every two weeks.
What’s more, you won’t have to invest in special cleaning tools, or waste time shopping for food that won’t get trapped in your metal wires and brackets. None of those problems will apply to you. You’ll just brush, floss, and rinse as usual. You can eat whatever you want, whenever you like. Doesn’t that sound perfect?
4. The Treatment Is Comfortable
Invisalign aligners won’t cause pain the way that traditional braces can. They are more like a mouthguard in the way that they rest comfortably over your teeth. So, you won’t need to rely on waxes to form a protective barrier over your soft tissues. With your clear aligners, there won’t be any bleeding, sores, or discomfort along the way. Remember, without any metal, you’ll have more reasons to smile along the way!
5. The Program Wraps Up Fast
Braces take years to get the job done. With Invisalign, though, you can look and feel a whole lot better in only about 12 months’ time. Plus, once treatment is over, your smile will be healthier and will look great. With any luck that could be this time next year!
