What are the benefits of Invisalign over Traditional Braces?
Invisalign is one of the most popular orthodontics treatment for those looking to correct tooth alignment. Invisalign offers several advantages over traditional braces. Including its ability to be removed when desired, and the lack of metal brackets on teeth which can cause discomfort. In this blog post, we will take a look at some of these benefits in more detail.
Benefits of Invisalign over Traditional Braces:
Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment that utilizes clear, custom-made aligners. The aligner fits over the teeth and gently moves them into place to correct tooth alignment. In contrast, traditional braces require metal brackets installed on each tooth, which are tightened periodically to move the teeth gradually until they reach their predetermined position.
While both procedures work for teeth alignment, Invisalign comes with a variety of benefits.
– Looks Better
Invisalign users enjoy the attractive appearance of their teeth during treatment because the clear aligners are nearly invisible and there are no unsightly brackets or wires in place. Most friends, family and colleagues won’t even know you are wearing your aligners!
– Easier to Clean
With traditional braces, the brackets are often uncomfortable, trapping food against your teeth and making flossing difficult. It much easier to keep teeth and gums healthy during the Invisalign treatment because the aligners can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing.
– No Food Adjustments
Braces are often difficult to eat with, and in some cases, certain foods can’t be eaten at all. Invisalign users enjoy the convenience of eating without any special considerations or adjustments needed for their diet.
– Invisalign is More Comfortable than braces
Traditional braces can be very painful and uncomfortable, especially during eating or when the wires get tightened by the dentist. Most Invisalign wearers find that they have a much easier time with comfort while wearing their aligners, specially designed to fit comfortably around the teeth for long periods of time.
– Invisalign Fixes a Variety of Dental Issues
Invisalign is not just for the general alignment of teeth. Dentists can use Invisalign to fix many dental issues that might need correcting, like spacing, overbite or underbite problems, as well as jaw misalignment.
Other issues fixable by Invisalign include:
- Gaps in teeth
- Crooked or crowded teeth
- Difficulty chewing and speaking
- Crowding of the front teeth
In some cases, Invisalign isn’t the right choice and traditional braces are a better way to proceed. Which is why it’s essential to consult with your local dentist or talk to Dr.Niromi at Dentistry at The Grove before going ahead with Invisalign treatments?
