Traditional metal braces are invasive and cumbersome to wear, which is why so many teenagers and adults look for other ways to get the straight smile they’ve always wanted. Fortunately, Invisalign takes away the stigma associated with wearing braces. By reading through the following article, you can learn all about what makes Invisalign comfortable and convenient.
- Less Invasive Treatment: Metal brackets can tear your gums and cheeks, which makes wearing braces extremely intrusive. Additionally, traditional braces require you to avoid a large variety of foods in order to prevent breaking brackets. Broken brackets can be painful and require intrusive maintenance to correct. Fortunately, Invisalign braces can be taken out so that you can enjoy your favorite foods, avoid scraping your mouth, and eliminate the embarrassment of food stuck in brackets.
- Invisible Appearance: Ask the name suggests, Invisalign is clear and virtually invisible. Most people can’t see the Invisalign trays that fit tightly around your teeth—meaning that you can take pictures, attend work meetings with important clients, and smile without feeling self-conscious.
- Faster Results: Results can vary, but Invisalign has been shown to produce faster results than traditional braces. This makes them a great choice for adults who don’t want to wear braces for multiple years.
