Benefits Of Invisalign® Treatments

Benefits Of Invisalign® Treatments

When you first find out that you require orthodontic treatment to improve the appearance of your smile, you may only assume that metal braces are your only option. Although traditional metal braces have undergone quite a transformation over the years, they still are not the most visually appealing or comfortable teeth-straightening option out there. Invisalign®  has emerged as a near-perfect solution for repositioning crooked and improperly spaced teeth. Teeth are aligned to their correct position using clear guides. The clear guides fit snug to your teeth making it almost impossible for anyone to notice. This article will discuss numerous benefits of Invisalign® and why it is an excellent investment for your smile.

Freedom And Flexibility

Invisalign® patients can enjoy a bit more freedom than those with braces because patients are not restricted on what foods they can and cannot eat. Sticky, chewy foods can wreak havoc on brackets and wires, so patients must avoid these types of foods for the duration of their treatment with braces. And if they do indulge in such foods, a broken wire can cut into your mouth and cause extreme discomfort that requires you to visit your orthodontist for a replacement. Invisalign® allows you to eat whatever you want, whenever you want! Simply remove the aligner and enjoy some popcorn or candy and then place it back in right after you have finished. 

Easier Oral Hygiene

Invisalign® makes it so easy to correctly brush and floss your teeth. Maintaining good oral hygiene with traditional braces can be difficult. It is tricky to brush and floss in between wires and brackets, preventing the adequate removal of plaque and other food particles. Not to mention, flossing and brushing with braces takes more time. 

Invisalign® Can treat A Variety Of Orthodontic Issues

When Invisalign® was first introduced, it could only correct small spacing issues or very mild crowding. Over the years, as Invisalign® grew in popularity, the design improved dramatically. Invisalign® can now successfully correct orthodontic issues such as:

  • gaps between teeth
  • crowding
  • deep overbite
  • open bite
  • crossbite
  • excessive overjet

During your dental exam, your dentist will assess what corrections need to be made to straighten your smile. They will then create custom progressive aligners that fit your teeth, straightening your teeth over time.

Crooked teeth can cause serious self-confidence issues among many patients. But, many patients do not want to invest 2 or 3 years of their life wearing unsightly braces to correct their smile. Invisalign® guides are translucent and are made out of medical-grade polyurethane that does not stand out, unlike braces. This material is nearly invisible, therefore, you can have the confidence to smile and laugh without worrying about anyone seeing your aligner. 

Crowded teeth, open bites, crossbites, and overbites are all common issues that can be treated by your orthodontic team with Invisalign®. Whether you are an adult looking for a straighter smile, a teenager who has some misaligned teeth, or a child who has developed crowded teeth, Invisalign® may be able to help.

Q: How long are Invisalign® treatments on average?
A: On average, Invisalign® treatment time is between 12-18 months.

Q: Does Invisalign® hurt?
A: Invisalign® treatments do not cause pain. However, like any orthodontic treatment, you may feel slight discomfort when you first start using the aligners as your teeth get used to the pressure and tightness. 

Q: Can I smoke while wearing my aligners?
A: No, you cannot. Any tobacco use can cause permanent staining to your aligners.
