5 Reasons to Consider Invisalign®

Many people are dissatisfied with the appearance of their teeth, but seem more willing to live with crowding or spacing issues, underbites, overbites and other imperfections than they are to wear metal braces. And really, who can blame them? Metal braces are inconvenient and uncomfortable. Fortunately, for most issues that would ordinarily require the use of traditional metal braces, there is an alternative – Invisalign clear braces. Read on to learn five good reasons to consider Invisalign.

  1. Appearance

Of course one of the main reasons to consider Invisalign clear braces is that they are practically invisible. This means that you can get the same benefits that you would from metal braces without having to feel self-conscious about your appearance.

  1. Eat What You Want

With metal braces, it can be difficult to eat certain foods, like raw vegetables, steak, pizza crust or popcorn, to name a few. This is because not only is it uncomfortable, it can lead to getting food stuck between your braces or your teeth. This is not a problem with Invisalign, since you simply remove your aligners when you want to eat. Then you brush, floss, and put your aligners back in your mouth.

  1. Great For Teens

Parents of teenagers have very good reasons to consider Invisalign. Not only do teens feel better about wearing clear braces, Invisalign comes with several free replacements incase the aligners end up being damaged or lost.

  1. Less Time at the Dentist Office

With Invisalign, you do not have to come to the office for tightenings. Instead, you simply change your aligners yourself every two weeks. Of course you will still have to visit your dentist from time to time, just to make sure that your treatment is progressing effectively, but you will spend considerably less time in the chair.

  1. Not As Much Aftercare

With traditional metal braces, most people have to wear a retainer all the time, for up to two years after the braces are taken off. Adding to the other very good reasons to consider Invisalign, you can add less time wearing a retainer. You will still need one, but will not have to wear it nearly as often.
