If you could change anything about your smile, what would it be? Many would straighten their teeth in a heartbeat if it wasn’t for the metal brackets, discomfort and long-term commitment to wearing braces. Luckily, you don’t have to! Over 5 million people have already taken advantage of Invisalign to straighten their smile, and you can too!
5 Advantages of Invisalign Over Traditional Braces
They’re clear aligners! You won’t have to feel like your smile is drawing unnecessary attention in the process of them being straightened. Discreetly achieve a great smile without feeling self-conscious.
Traditional braces can hurt when they are adjusted, causing sores on the sides of the mouth. With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about the discomfort of wires or brackets.
Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to take them out for brushing your teeth and eating. For projected results, these aligners must be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day, but they can be removed for up to a few hours each day.
Braces usually takes 2-3 years before they are removed, whereas Invisalign usually takes around 1-1.5 years. Less time and less painful!
When your Invisalign treatment is first set up, a digital plan is made using a smile scan. You will be able to see what your final smile is projected to look like before you even start wearing the aligners.
With Invisalign, multiple sets of custom aligners will be made designed specifically for your smile. You will be given your first set of aligners and told when to switch to your next set. You will work your way through all the sets of aligners as they gradually straighten your teeth into the end result – your dream smile!
Invisalign has kept improving since the beginning and now has two features that make the Invisalign experience even better! First, compliance indicators have been added to the aligners to ensure the aligners have been worn for the proper amount of time each day. This helps parents know if their teens are consistently wearing the aligners and also helps your dentist see that you’ve been staying consistent as well. Without proper wear, the aligners won’t work in the time intended! Second, eruption tabs have been developed for molars that are not grown in fully. This keeps the space open for those molars to grow in properly. These two features aid in making the Invisalign a success for your smile.
