There are a number of reasons to choose Invisalign over braces, and we’ll talk about those in just a moment, but we should take a look at the first reason since it’s the most important – Invisalign can help you maintain good oral health!
Because Invisalign are removeable, it’s much easier to stick to your oral hygiene routine than it is with braces which can cause food to become trapped and lead to decay and gum disease.
Another benefit to removeable aligners is that you can keep eating your favorite foods without worry of restrictions or the compromising of your oral health.
Another advantage is that Invisalign are made of a smooth surface which means you can avoid the sharp edges of braces that often have a tendency to hurt the soft tissue inside your mouth. You will still notice some pressure on your teeth when you first start to wear aligners since they are working to gradually adjust your teeth, but the pressure is nothing like traditional braces.
There’s no doubt about it – Invisalign aligners can be your little secret when you’re wearing them since they’re virtually invisible! And if you do have a reason to not wear them such as a special event, you have the option to wear them or not. Just make sure you wear them for the required number of hours each day.
When you wear braces, it’s critically important to floss between each individual bracket for optimum oral health. But with Invisalign you can maintain your white smile with less effort. Because they’re removeable, you’re able to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would without having to guide the floss around brackets. Just remember to brush your teeth after you eat to avoid staining.
