Braces have been around for many, many years. They’re the traditional method used to give people some extra confidence in their smiles. While we still believe in the end result that braces provide, we realise that braces might not be for everyone.
Now, our patients can choose Invisalign, a clear mouthpiece that will do the same work as braces without many of inconveniences.
If you are still not sure whether Invisalign is the right choice, we have created a list of the 6 main reasons our dentists recommend this product for you!
1. Invisible Image
It is safe to say that braces are notorious for getting in the way of a lot of things. The metal brackets can severely interfere with your smile and, if you are concerned about this, it can be the cause of a lot of stress and self-consciousness. This fear is what might be preventing you from visiting the dentist altogether!
Invisalign is a wonderful option to avoid this issue. The aligners issued to you are completely transparent and hardly noticeable once in place. You can go on looking your best and still be working towards a straighter smile. It is the best of both worlds!
While you will be required to wear your assigned aligners for an allotted time period, it is ultimately up to you when and how you fulfil those hours. You can wear them at your convenience and take them out whenever you deem necessary.
With this being said, we still must emphasise how important it is that you wear your aligners as long as your dental experts recommend. If you do not follow the scheduled treatment plan, it will likely take you much longer to see the lasting results that Invisalign is designed to provide.
2. Less Expensive
While this may not always be the case, Invisalign can be cheaper than traditional braces!
It will take a consultation session with one of our experts to deem which treatment plan is best for your case, but Invisalign’s prevalence in the dental industry has allowed for its prices to decrease over the years. This growth in popularity has made Invisalign an option that is available to a wider group of individuals.
3. New Technology
Invisalign was created due to recent technological developments in the industry. This means you will be receiving the highest level of treatment that is available in the industry.
Traditional braces often require individuals to wear a daily retainer or to have a permanent retainer installed. Permanent retainers are glued to the back of the teeth. Both options become an inconvenience for a variety of reasons.
Retainers can be a nuisance, and people often forget to wear them. Forgetting to wear them can lead to complications with the results of your treatment plan. Permanent retainers, on the other hand, remain in your mouth indefinitely and can collect bacteria and plaque, making them very difficult to take care of.
If the Invisalign treatments are followed correctly, you can avoid these issues altogether! Our treatment plans are designed to last a lifetime and are meant to make you proud of your straight smile.
4. No Food Restrictions
Traditional braces also limit what you can eat. With metal brackets in your mouth, it becomes very difficult to eat any foods that are chewy or sticky because they can break the braces. This leads to a longer, more expensive treatment period, and no one wants that.
Invisalign gives you the freedom to eat what you want when you want! You don’t have to worry about breaking the expensive brackets in your mouth at any point during your treatment. You just remove your aligners and enjoy the meal in front of you!
Additionally, braces are infamous for collecting food in all those hard-to-reach areas. This can lead to plaque build-up and other complications that you won’t have to worry about if you choose the Invisalign route.
With food getting caught in your braces after every meal, it becomes very difficult to keep your teeth as clean as you need to. When plaque begins to build around the brackets on your teeth, it will ultimately lead to a yellow discolouration on your teeth.
Fixing this is possible, but most whitening options available will mean another monetary investment from you. Luckily, Invisalign aligners are removable throughout the entire treatment process, so you can avoid discolouration altogether!
This means that you will be able to floss and brush your teeth as you normally would, without having to work your way around all the metal in your mouth. Invisalign has proven to be the most sanitary option, and as a result it leaves patients with a whiter smile in the end.
One final benefit of choosing Invisalign is that you can clearly see the progress of your teeth straightening. The treatment process is designed to provide you with a definitive amount of time that you will have to use the aligners.
At each consultation, the dentist will take an in-depth look at your progress to determine whether you are ready to move on to the next set of aligners. With each new set, you are one step closer to a perfect smile!
Each new mouthpiece will show just how much your teeth have changed. You will feel more confident in your new smile after just a few consultations.
