4 Benefits Of Choosing Invisalign Over Braces

A recent Harris Poll concluded that most people say that when they feel confident, they are happier and believe others perceive them as being more successful. Such is the power of confidence. The same poll also concluded that nearly everyone who had their teeth straightened felt more confident.

What about Invisalign?

We’re all are familiar with traditional metal braces. Even though they do a good job of straightening teeth, they can definitely be uncomfortable and not very attractive. It’s ironic that while straightening teeth, these braces often make you feel even more self-conscious.

But the good news is that you may another option. With Invisalign clear plastic aligners, you wear a series of custom-made alignment trays that fit snugly in your mouth and move your teeth into position over time.

So why should you choose Invisalign over regular braces? If you’re still wondering, we’ll give you four of the benefits Invisalign has over braces.

1. Invisalign is more comfortable

Even though metal braces do the job, they are not exactly the most comfortable things to wear. They are attached to your teeth using brackets and feel quite strange in your mouth. In fact, it takes a while to get used to them.

Invisalign aligners are simply more comfortable. And because you can remove them easily, you can also eat and drink whatever you want, then brush your teeth as you normally would. Just pop the aligners back in when you’re done. You don’t have to worry about food getting caught in braces or staining your teeth.

2. Aligners are more discrete

For lots of people, the idea of wearing traditional metal braces makes them feel awkward. In fact, you may feel even more self-conscious wearing braces than you do with your less-than-perfect smile. After all, bits of metal in your mouth is very easy to see.

Invisalign aligners are far more discrete. In fact, what people love most about them is that they aren’t noticeable at all. They are made from a clear high-grade plastic that doesn’t draw attention. If you are more than a little concerned about the way you might look when your teeth are being straightened, Invisalign is the way to go.

3. Invisalign is safe

All of the metal wires and brackets that are a hallmark of metal braces can damage the inside of your mouth. Lots of people find that they scrape the insides of their cheeks and hurt their tongue.

If you wear Invisalign aligners, you don’t have to deal with chunks of metal and wires scraping the inside of your mouth. They are smooth and fit snugly, making them comfortable and safer.

4. Aligners offer predictability

One of the problems with metal braces is that the outcome is not certain. How long treatment takes can sometimes be a process of trial and error.

Because your Invisalign treatment is computer-designed, we know exactly what to expect, how your teeth will move, and how long the treatment is expected to take. In this context, Invisalign treatment is predictable.
