Are you dreaming of a straighter and healthier smile but dislike the idea of metal braces? You are not alone. Many people want a discreet and convenient way to fix their tooth alignment and bite. That is why Invisalign is perfect for you.
Invisalign beats braces for several reasons. The system of clear aligners corrects various orthodontic issues. The aligners, made from a flexible and transparent material and custom-fitted to your teeth, hug them securely. You can remove them before drinking, eating, brushing, or flossing.
This flexibility and numerous other benefits make it a popular choice for confident smiles.
Here are five reasons why Invisalign outperforms braces:
Invisalign Is Virtually invisible
People choose Invisalign over braces because Invisalign is virtually invisible. Braces have metal wires and brackets that can embarrass you, but Invisalign aligners are clear and match your teeth. You can smile, talk, and laugh confidently.
Invisalign Is comfortable
Invisalign is better than braces because the aligners are comfortable. Braces can irritate and hurt your mouth with the metal parts rubbing against your gums and cheeks. They can also limit what you can eat or do.
Invisalign aligners are smooth and gentle on your mouth. They have no sharp edges or wires that can poke or scratch you. They let you eat and enjoy anything you want without any restrictions.
Invisalign Is effective
Invisalign is not only more aesthetic and comfortable but also more effective. It can treat many orthodontic problems, from mild to moderate. It works by gently and constantly pushing your teeth into the proper position.
Depending on your plan, you will change your aligners every one to two weeks. You will also visit your dentist or orthodontist every six to eight weeks for new aligners and progress checks.
Invisalign Is convenient
Invisalign is also more convenient than braces in many ways. First, you can remove your aligners when you eat, drink, brush, or floss. This makes it easier to keep your mouth clean and healthy. It also means no food stuck in your braces or damage to them.
Second, Invisalign aligners are low-maintenance. You do not need special tools or products to clean them. You rinse them with water and brush them gently every day. You can sometimes use the Invisalign cleaning system or soak them in denture cleaner.
Third, Invisalign aligners are time-saving. You do not need to see your dentist or orthodontist as often as with braces. Usually, you only see them every six to eight weeks for a checkup and adjustment. You also do not need extra visits for emergencies or repairs.
Invisalign Is Cost-effective
Finally, Invisalign is cost-effective compared to braces. The cost of Invisalign may vary depending on your location, provider, and plan, but it is usually similar to or slightly more than braces.
However, Invisalign’s benefits and convenience may make it worth the extra money. Also, many dental insurance plans pay for some or all of Invisalign, just like braces. You can also use Flexible Spending Accounts or Health Savings Accounts to pay for Invisalign with pretax dollars.
Invisalign is an excellent option for those who want to smile with confidence. It has many benefits over braces, such as invisibility, comfort, effectiveness, convenience, and cost-effectiveness. To try Invisalign, see a certified Invisalign dentist or orthodontist. They will check your teeth and bite, take impressions or scans of your mouth, and make a custom plan.
