The Top Benefits of Invisalign
By Ann R. Sielicki, DDS on November 22, 2018
Do you desire a straighter and more uniform smile but hate the idea of wearing metal braces? If so, Invisalign may be the perfect solution for you. Invisalign is a modern teeth straightening system that gradually shifts teeth into a more aligned position using a series of clear aligner trays.
Here, Sonoran Dental Design, a top Scottsdale dental practice and certified Invisalign provider, shares the top benefits of Invisalign.
Undoubtedly one of the biggest reasons why patients choose Invisalign aligners over metal braces is because of their superior design. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth discreetly and without the embarrassment of having to wear conspicuous metal braces that stand out in your mouth.
Another appealing feature of Invisalign is the fact that the aligners can be removed at any time, unlike metal braces, which can only be removed by a dentist. While you are required to wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours a day, you are able to take them out to eat. Invisalign requires fewer food restrictions than conventional braces, meaning you can continue to enjoy all of your favorite foods. If you play sports or musical instruments, you can also remove your aligners and partake in these activities in a comfortable manner.
Last but definitely not least, the removable aligners make brushing and flossing your teeth much easier, in turn promoting good oral health.
Invisalign aligners are made of smooth plastic that is molded to fit over your teeth and mouth, providing a snug yet comfortable fit. Unlike braces, there are no wires or metal brackets that can potentially irritate the mouth, gum or cheeks.
With Invisalign, there’s no having to clean in between wires or metal brackets. Instead, all you have to do is remove the aligners from your mouth, gently brush and rinse them, and then slip them back into place. It’s that easy!
