Keep reading to find out how Invisalign treatment can brighten your smile and make you shine for the rest of the year.
Invisalign is nearly Invisible
One of the major benefits to having Invisalign instead of traditional braces is the way that they look. Invisalign treatment doesn’t use hardware or ugly wires on your teeth so these won’t be a problem when you smile. In fact, Invisalign is practically invisible so there will be no need to be self-conscious or shy at all. This is particularly relevant for adults who need their teeth straightened but don’t want to endure unsightly braces.
Invisalign is more Comfortable than Traditional Braces
Invisalign treatment is practically pain free. The technology is developed to suit your individual teeth. Invisalign uses Align Technology with 3-D computer imagery to get results that are perfectly suitable to your teeth. This means that the treatment plan will work with your teeth and their structure.
The actual Invisalign trays are pain free to wear, as well. For two weeks, aligners are worn that gently push your teeth into place. These adjustments are supported with check ups every few weeks to ensure that your teeth are naturally straightening with the Invisalign treatment.
The lack of wires and metal or brackets mean that there is minimal pain in the mouth. Invisalign reduces and essentially removes the risk of mouth and gum abrasions that come with traditional braces. Your comfort as well as a beautifully straight smile is certainly worth it.
Invisalign doesn’t ask you to sacrifice Oral Hygiene
Maintaining dental hygiene is important, especially when you have ongoing dental work to be tended to. With traditional metal braces, oral hygiene can be problematic with brushing and flossing between the wires and brackets. Invisalign takes away all hygiene problems, as the clear retainers are removable. This means that you can take the retainer out, brush and floss your teeth as per usual, and then replace the retainer to allow the natural straightening process to continue throughout the day and overnight. Your Invisalign orthodontic treatment won’t compromise your health and hygiene in your mouth at all.
