One of the first things you notice when meeting somebody new is their face, more specifically their smile. A good smile not only makes a person more memorable, it also has the ability to install confidence where ever you go! What really makes a smile is the teeth. So much so, that many refuse to smile with teeth as they’re insecure about their teeth. If you’re not happy with your smile, it’s no surprise that your self-esteem suffers.
From problems like crowded teeth or an overbite, many of us suffer with dental problems that can impact our smile. The key to an eye-catching smile is good dental hygiene. With all the advancements in technology, it’s never been easier to straighten up your teeth. If you are thinking of trying Invisalign or on the fence about it, here are some benefits to choose this alternative to traditional braces.
As you may already know, braces help reposition and straighten teeth through use of mental brackets and rubber bands. Each time you visit a dentist, your brackets are tightened to align with the position of your teeth. Invisalign is a teeth-straightening treatment that comes in the form of clear aligners and eliminate some of the negative elements of wearing traditional braces.
You can visit the dentist less
As mentioned above, traditional metal braces can often require several visits to the dentist when your bands need tightening. Invisalign is a great alternative for those who lead busy lifestyles because it allows you the freedom to enjoy activities without disrupting the teeth repositioning and alignment progress. You will also receive trays in advance for several phases of your Invisalign treatment program!
Invisalign is easier to clean
Invisalign is easy to clean and maintain and you’ll receive a fresh, new aligner every 1-2 weeks.
They’re more comfortable
Anyone who has worn traditional braces will likely tell you they experience some form of discomfort. The brackets and wires cause tension to reposition the teeth and the tightening of the brackets can cause soreness too. Using an alternative like Invisalign allows you to remove trays for eating, brush and flossing teeth. You also don’t have to worry about the pain of scraping against your tongue, cheek, or gums.
