Why Choose Invisalign?
Invisalign is a great way to go if you don’t like the idea of having fixed metal braces. Invisalign straightens your teeth through a sequence of transparent, removable aligners which will be made specifically for your teeth. Millions of people have changed their lives with the help of Invisalign; each tiny movement that Invisalign creates helps you to gently and accurately improve your smile.
Wearing fixed braces is an option for straightening your teeth, but it is not for everyone. Adults can be especially embarrassed to wear fixed braces, and Invisalign fills the need for a clear alternative.
Some people find the appearance of fixed, metal braces unattractive. These braces are noticeable, particularly on an adult. Invisalign braces are barely noticeable and they look like you are not wearing anything at all. Self-esteem and self-confidence are important to us all – and by choosing Invisalign, you can improve your smile over time without the need for a fixed brace.
Easy to Care For
When you have Invisalign, all you have to do is take out your aligners and brush them down, brush your teeth and then replace the aligners. When Invisalign is carried out properly, it is far less likely to cause damage to your teeth than any type of alignment.
Anyone who has had fixed braces would tell you that one of the biggest challenges is getting rid of all the food that gets stuck in them. This can lead to a build-up of plaque and eventually tooth decay. With Invisalign, the aligners are removable, so it’s easy to continue brushing and flossing as normal.
Healthier Teeth & Gums
Having straight teeth doesn’t just benefit you cosmetically – there are also some health benefits.
Having teeth that are causing your mouth to be too crowded or teeth that are too widely spaced can cause swollen and red gums. This is a sign of periodontal disease. Gums can fit more easily and firmly around teeth that are properly aligned. This is the strongest defence against periodontal problems.
Your overall health can often be determined by how well your teeth are. Tooth decay and gum disease are caused by bacteria. When these issues are left untreated, they can lead to mouth sores, tender or bleeding gums, bad breath, and possible tooth loss. Studies have shown that this can also lead to more serious ailments.
Invisalign is better fitting than other aligners and the smile you want can be achieved up to 50% faster than if you’re using other aligners.
