What are the benefits of Invisalign?
More and more patients are choosing Invisalign over traditional braces. While traditional braces are still necessary in some instances, Invisalign offers the flexibility and convenience that our patients really appreciate.
The biggest attraction to Invisalign is that you cannot see the clear trays you wear for your treatment. Because your custom trays are thin, clear, and slim, most people will never notice that you have them. You can talk normally after getting used to them, which only takes a day or two of practice.
Another advantage to Invisalign is that you can take out your trays to clean your teeth. Brushing and flossing brackets is a big hassle and requires special tools to remove all of the food particles from your hardware. With Invisalign, you simply remove your trays and brush and floss normally. You also remove them to eat, so you don’t have to worry about getting food in them.
Invisalign is smooth, so it does not irritate the insides of your cheeks. You will not need any orthodontic wax to keep from cutting the lining in your cheeks. Invisalign is comfortable and has no sharp edges.
Because we do not attach anything to your teeth, you don’t have to worry about residual glue or damage from the brackets. When you finish treatment, you just take out your trays and use a retainer normally.
