Does Invisalign Beat Traditional Braces?
Pro Health Dental offers top notch Invisalign treatments in addition to traditional braces for our cherished patients. If you’re insecure about crooked or misaligned teeth, then we have several options that can fit your individual lifestyle for you to consider, one of which being the exciting and innovative Invisalign clear braces treatment.
Conventional braces can quite ostentatious, to say the least. Metal braces are noticeable, putting you on the radar, even if you want to be more incognito. Who really wants to hang around sporting a huge hunk of metal in their mouth, anyway? Metal braces can be extremely cumbersome, uncomfortable, and they can limit your lifestyle in many ways, including diet. It can be a real drag staying away from the hard, sticky foods that you love. Metal braces only become more and more inconvenient the older we get. There aren’t many adults brave enough to undergo such a life-altering process that late in life. It’s such a sad irony, the fact that braces might make you feel insecure, when all you’re trying to do is improve your smile.
One major benefit to Invisalign that we can mention upfront is your appearance. Invisalign trays are barely noticeable. Even if somebody is looking, they would be hard-pressed to see your transparent Invisalign treatment. You can’t get food stuck in your Invisalign trays like traditional metal braces. This way you don’t have to worry about checking the mirror after every meal and snack to make sure there isn’t any debris in your teeth. Eat whatever you want, because you don’t have to worry about any diet restrictions outside of what you normally would for your own personal health and safety.
Comfort is also a big advantage that Invisalign has over traditional metal braces. Invisalign clear braces can be removed completely, though it is recommended that you keep them in for most of a 24 hour period for maximum results.
You also don’t have to worry about irritation or inflammation in your mouth due to cuts or abrasions that metal braces tend to incite. This causes all sorts of discomfort, and can even cause an infection. Metal braces contain wire and protruding metal that can scratch your gums and mouth all over, making it painful to speak, much less eat. Invisalign is sleek and smooth, no way to get shanked in the mouth.
The structure of Invisalign braces is also found to be appealing to patients. You will undergo a sort of planning that is completely computerized and visualized, meaning you’ll have a much better idea of what to expect and how long your Invisalign treatment program will be. Metal braces can often turn into a trial-and-error scenario that doesn’t give you anywhere near as clear an idea of how long you can expect to have your braces. You might even end up having to wear your braces for much longer than you originally were quoted by your dentist.
Invisalign makes your teeth much easier to clean than braces. You don’t have to worry about a water pick, if you don’t want to. You also don’t have to reach into every nook and cranny of your teeth and navigate in between brackets and wires like you would with traditional braces. There is no special tooling required to get started with your Invisalign treatment besides the trays that you will be given.
