As the saying goes, “No Pain, No Gain.” And this is especially true for braces, which are often uncomfortable, have to be worn for several months to years, and require you to make some sacrifices to your diet.
Good thing that Invisalign emerged as an alternative treatment for aligning crooked teeth and an irregular bit, offering the same set of benefits but without the disadvantages of traditional braces.
Here are 4 ways that show Invisalign is a better dental solution.
1. You Can Eat Anything
Having traditional braces installed means having to avoid certain foods like chewing, candy, chewy chocolate, and popcorn, all of which can become stuck to the wires on your teeth. This isn’t an issue with Invisalign. You can still eat anything you want (but please, try to eat healthy) without worrying about damaging your invisible aligners.
2. You Can Take Them Out Anytime
Unlike braces, which have to stay put on your teeth for months to years, and can only be removed by your dentist, your Invisalign aligners can easily be removed whenever and wherever you want, and reattached without any hassle or compromise to your alignment.
3. They’re More Aesthetically Pleasing
Traditional braces aren’t hard to miss; in fact, because they stand out so much, people often just go ahead and personalize hem with different colors and styles to make them their own. This isn’t a problem with Invisalign aligners and their “invisibility.” Their less obtrusive and come free of the unsightly wires of braces.
4. Less Painful and Sore
The few days after having braces installed and readjusted are often the roughest. Besides the pressure on your teeth, the metal wires in traditional braces are known to cause mouth sores and discomfort your surrounding gums and the inside of your mouth—imagine dealing with this for months.
On the other hand, Invisalign, with its smooth plastic construction and custom fit, is gentler on your teeth and mouth.
