Invisible Braces have become very popular in the last few years, with many people having to decide between straightening their teeth with Invisalign Clear Aligners or traditional braces. Invisalign is an amazing tool that provides numerous benefits to patients who qualify for this type of treatment. We have put together 10 reasons why many of our patients at all our Oradent Dental Care Practices are choosing to go with Invisalign Invisible Braces over traditional braces.
1. No change in lifestyle
Invisalign enables people to eat, drink and engage in all facets of their lives, as they already do. You don’t need to change the way you brush your teeth or spend hours on oral hygiene. All patients can carry on with their lives as they were before because Invisalign aligner trays are invisible and removable. No one will even notice that you’re trying to improve the appearance of your teeth. For most this is the biggest benefit of straightening the teeth using Invisalign instead of traditional braces.
2. Comfort and flexibility
When you’re wearing your Invisalign aligners, you don’t even know they’re there. They’re so comfortable because each aligner tray is made of a smooth, transparent plastic that doesn’t rub against the gums or the cheeks to cause abrasions. Compared to traditional braces which can be uncomfortable with the metal brackets and wires that are likely to cause injuries inside the mouth, Invisalign aligner trays don’t have sharp edges or areas that protrude into the mouth. They are made to fit your mouth and teeth accordingly. So, when you want to eat or drink, you can easily remove the custom made trays and enjoy any number of meals. Traditional braces on the other hand have you avoiding certain foods and drinks because they could cause damage to the metal brackets.
3. They’re invisible
You can straighten your teeth discreetly and no one has to even know you’re wearing them. The Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible which allows you to carry on smiling with confidence while enjoying your life as you always have without the intrusion of metal braces. At Oradent Dental Care our patients always ask for Invisalign because they like the fact that they can straighten their teeth without having to mention that they’re bettering themselves to friends and family.
4. Better oral hygiene
When using Invisalign to straighten your teeth it’s very easy to perform your regular oral hygiene routines. Traditional braces come with metal brackets and wires, which requires a lot of extra effort to care for your teeth so you can avoid the appearance of cavities. Even then it’s still difficult to clean your teeth properly with so much metal in your mouth. You can brush and floss your teeth normally with Invisalign as you can easily remove the aligner trays. Patients using the Invisalign Clear Braces benefit from a higher standard of oral hygiene.
5. It’s faster
Many of our Invisalign patients at Oradent Dental Care are busy people and Invisalign provides great results without requiring a lot of time at the dental practice. Traditional braces require monthly clinic visits of 30 minutes to an hour, if not more, to get the wires adjusted so that the teeth can continue moving. With Invisalign it’s as simple as going to the grocery store, you just need to go and pick up your new aligner tray when the old tray is no longer usable. The time required to undertake the Invisalign treatment is much lower compared to traditional braces.
6. They’re safe and removable
If you’re involved in any sporting activities having metal brackets and wires in the mouth can be dangerous. With Invisalign being removable, it’s not a safety hazard as traditional braces are. The aligner trays can be removed by Invisalign patients before they engage in any athletic activities or they can even be worn during such. It’s perfectly fine to wear them because there are no sharp edges and no injuries will happen if the patients prefer to keep them on. If anyone is involved in music, theatre or speech the Invisalign aligners won’t affect performance either. Whilst traditional braces can influence proper speech and musical performance.
7. Eat what you want.
Invisalign Clear Braces allows patients to eat what they like. This is because the aligners can be removed during eating and then easily put back in when finished. Traditional metal braces are a different story. You essentially need to change your diet. Crunchy foods, sugary treats and practically anything that could get lodged in the braces or break the metal brackets needs to be avoided. It’s not a surprise when many patients now choose the Invisalign clear aligners.
8. Duration of treatment
If you choose Invisalign to straighten your teeth at Oradent Dental Care, you can expect to get through the treatment much quicker. Traditional braces require some patients to wear them for up to 5 years in order to get the results desired. Whilst with Invisalign patients can get a complete smile makeover in under 18 months if not less, depending on the case.
9. See in the future
Before the treatment begins, you can see how your teeth will look not only at each stage of the journey but you can see the final result after a scan and impressions of your teeth are taken. So, you’ll know exactly what to expect and what you’re investing in. This is not possible with traditional braces.
10. Amazing smile
The results you’ll be having with Invisalign are second to none. You’ll achieve a complete smile makeover which will leave friends and family impressed, to say the least.
