The Advantages of Straightening Your Teeth with Invisalign

Invisalign is a method of straightening the teeth that does not involve bulky, noticeable metal brackets. Invisalign aligners are the modernized alternative to braces. The treatment system involves wearing a series of clear plastic aligners that gently nudge the teeth into the right positions. Invisalign is just as effective as conventional braces, but with plenty of added benefits.


One of the most compelling reasons to choose Invisalign treatment is that it’s virtually invisible. No one needs to know that you’re wearing Invisalign aligners, unless you decide to tell them. Invisalign is popular among adults who are finally taking steps toward correcting their crooked teeth. Since Invisalign is not noticeable, wearing the aligners won’t make a person stand out in an office setting. They’re also ideal for adolescents. The teen years are typically emotionally turbulent. Choosing Invisalign for a teen can help him or her preserve self-confidence.


Another major benefit of Invisalign is its convenience. Traditional metal braces come with significant dietary restrictions; patients are unable to eat crunchy, hard, or chewy foods like apples and popcorn. There are no such restrictions with Invisalign, since patients will simply pop out the aligners to enjoy a meal.

Oral Hygiene

Dentists often prefer Invisalign over traditional braces because Invisalign helps patients maintain a superior level of oral hygiene during their treatment. With metal braces, food debris and plaque easily becomes trapped within the nooks and crannies. This increases the risk of gum disease and tooth decay. With Invisalign treatment, patients remove the aligners to thoroughly brush and floss their teeth as they normally would. It’s easy and quick to clean the aligners before popping them back in.
