Reasons to Choose Invisalign® to Straighten Your Teeth

Invisalign Cornelius, NC

Invisalign® offers benefits that traditional braces and other methods of teeth straightening do not. The clear aligner treatment system is a convenient, comfortable and discreet treatment option that allows patients with mild to moderate teeth alignment concerns to achieve a more attractive smile that makes them proud. 

The benefits of Invisalign® treatment

Every patient has their own reasons for considering and choosing Invisalign treatment. However, there are some more notable reported benefits that patients receive with Invisalign. This includes but is not limited to a transparent and less discreet method of treatment, fewer dietary restrictions, fast treatment times and an easy oral care routine. 

Transparent aligners

Many older teenagers and adults prefer a method of teeth straightening that is more discreet. Invisalign offers a clear aligner system that is essentially invisible to others. This means others are not likely to notice the aligners while they are worn, which helps patients feel more confident during treatment. In addition, the Invisalign aligners are removable, so patients can remove them if they have an important presentation, interview or another important moment in school or in a professional setting. 

Fewer food restrictions

The main concern of many patients who are deciding on the best choice for orthodontic treatment is how it will affect their ability to eat certain foods. Metal brackets and wires that are used with braces can become damaged by hard and sticky foods, and the risk of stained teeth is slightly higher with braces as well. 

On the other hand, Invisalign aligners are removable, which means that they are not at risk of being damaged while the patient eats. While it is best to limit the consumption of foods and drinks that are high in sugar and other carbohydrates, Invisalign does provide the patient with fewer food and drink restrictions during the treatment process. 

Fast treatment times

Invisalign takes between six months to two years, but the average length of treatment is less than with traditional braces. During treatment, patients receive new Invisalign aligners every one or two weeks, whereas braces are tightened less often. Constantly wearing new aligners pulls teeth into the ideal position quickly and safely, and the dental professional monitors the treatment process every step of the way in case there are any concerns that develop.

Easier oral care routine

Good care is essential during orthodontic treatment. This is because wearing clear aligners (or wearing braces) increases the risk of cavities and teeth stains. However, oral care is easier with Invisalign as the aligners are removable. This means there is nothing obstructing the surface of teeth while brushing, flossing or using mouthwash. However, patients should still take extra precautions to avoid oral health concerns while wearing Invisalign.
