Four Reasons to Choose Invisalign over Braces

Metal braces are so ubiquitous that they’re almost a rite of passage. But if you or your child’s teeth need alignment and you’re concerned about the inconvenience, it’s time to give Invisalign a look. The clear alternative to braces, Invisalign treatment is easy and effective.

Both metal braces and Invisalign align teeth by placing pressure on them. Over time, the soft gum tissue slowly adapts to this pressure and allows the teeth to move into their corrected positions. But for many patients, Invisalign is the treatment of choice.

Invisalign offers 4 important benefits compared with traditional braces:

  • Invisalign is virtually invisible. The clear, plastic aligners stand in clear contrast to bulky wire braces. Most people probably won’t even notice them.
  • Invisalign is convenient. No need to avoid certain foods, simply remove your aligner tray when you eat and return it to your teeth when you’re done!
  • Invisalign supports oral health. Because you can remove the aligners to brush and floss, you can reach all areas of the teeth, even those that would be hard to reach with conventional braces.
  • Invisalign is comfortable. You change aligners at home, so the painful tightening and adjustment visits to the dentist are a thing of the past.

Most patients complete their Invisalign treatment in about a year. Imagine having the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted just a year from now!
