If first impressions mean anything, then one of the ways you are initially judged is by your smile. Nothing beats a beautiful smile with clean and straight teeth to break the ice. While many people may not think about it as much, having straight teeth is also important to your overall dental health.
If you’re a busy person on the go, or you’re in a situation where you want straight teeth, but you’re concerned about the unsightly and uncomfortable nature of traditional braces, then Invisalign braces are a great alternative.
Invisalign braces offer many benefits over conventional metal braces:
They’re more comfortable. Once traditional braces are attached to your teeth, they are in place for the duration of your treatment. Invisalign braces are removable, so you have the flexibility to easily remove them for short periods of time to eat, drink or attend an important social event.
Just as the name implies, they’re invisible. Traditional metal braces can be unattractive. Few people welcome the look of having unsightly pieces of metal attached to their teeth. With Invisalign braces, they are pretty much invisible, as if a person isn’t wearing any kind of mouth appliance at all.
They work faster. Traditional braces can take several years to move a patient’s teeth into position. Invisalign braces are designed to work faster, often times producing results in as little as 12 to 18 months.
They are safer. Because Invisalign braces are computer generated and the material used to create them is not metal, the clear braces are rounded, smooth and more comfortable in a person’s mouth. No metal means that there is no potential for breaks that can leave a dangling wire that could puncture the inside of a person’s mouth. In addition, because Invisalign braces can be removed, a patient’s teeth are easier to clean in a more thorough way, avoiding the possibility of decaying teeth underneath the braces. This leads to less gum disease and cavities as well.
