5 Things People Love About Invisalign

Crooked, overcrowded, and even gappy smiles can get you down. The look of misaligned teeth will not only harm your confidence but could also cause oral health problems. 

Overcrowded teeth can be hard to clean. Getting the brush into every corner of your mouth to clear away harmful bacteria may even be impossible. A misaligned smile could soon be damaged further by tooth decay. 

Not only this, but if your upper and lower teeth don’t align, you may experience pain in your jaw, neck, shoulders, and head. 

Previously, your only treatment options were traditional metal braces. These days, there are more choices available. Invisalign is one of the most popular teeth straightening options. Here are five reasons why it’s loved so much.

1. Invsalign Is Barely Visible

Metal braces have been around for years. Braces use brackets and wires to slide your teeth into a more desirable position gradually. But the biggest drawback of metal braces is that they stand out a mile.

Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that sit over your teeth. Just like braces, they slowly move your teeth using gentle force; however, unlike braces, they’re virtually invisible, meaning anyone else will need to get quite close before they even see the outline of the aligner.

2. Invisalign Is Comfortable

Because the brackets on braces stick out from the teeth, they can press against the inside of your lips. For some people, this can be irritating. 

Invisalign is made using soft, comfortable plastic. You may feel slight pressure against your teeth when you first get your aligner. Over time, you’ll barely notice you’re wearing it. They’re so comfortable; you can easily sleep wearing them.

3. You Can Remove Your Aligner

Braces are fixed to your teeth and can only be removed by a dentist. Because you can’t take your brace off, food may get trapped in the wires and be hard to clean.

Invisalign aligners are removable. Simply slip the aligner out of your mouth whenever you want to eat or brush your teeth, and pop it back into your mouth when you’ve finished. You can even take the aligner out while you take a selfie— just remember to put it back in when you’re done.

As long as you wear your aligner for 22 hours daily, you’ll see the expected results. 

4. Invisalign Is Effective

Just like braces, Invisalign can treat a wide range of alignment and bite issues. You might think that because they’re comfortable and removable, you’re somehow cheating, and you won’t see the same results. This isn’t the case.

Over 6-18 months, you’ll see a dramatic improvement in the position of your teeth. Not only that, but you’ll start to feel a lot more confident about the appearance of your smile. 

5. There are No Complex Adjustments

Traditional braces need adjusting from time to time. This involves a dentist or orthodontist tightening the wires to apply additional pressure across your entire row of teeth. Adjustments mean appointments, and you may find these an inconvenience. 

There are no adjustments with Invisalign. Instead, you’ll get a new aligner to wear every couple of weeks. Each new aligner is slightly different from the last and is designed to further your treatment by changing the pressure applied to your teeth.
