Major Benefits of Invisalign
When in need of straightening your teeth, you usually people think of braces, right? However, more and more people are opting for Invisalign. Here are some major benefits of getting Invisalign:
Since Invisalign is invisible, it allows you to have a perfect smile without having the look of braces. You can essentially go about your day with more confidence.
Comfort and Less Irritation
Invisalign is meant to be a copy of your teeth that are custom-fit to fit snugly. They are both smooth and comfortable, reducing the mouth irritation that usually occurs from metal braces. There are no brackets that can break, no wires that can poke you, just a smooth, and sleek appearance.
Removable for Eating, Brushing, and Flossing
Unlike braces, you can easily remove Invisalign. You can take them out before your meals and for any oral hygiene, such as brushing your teeth, flossing, etc. This allows for a more enjoyable experience.
Predictable Treatment with 3D Planning
When receiving Invisalign, a digital treatment plan allows you to see your end result before you even begin treatment. This helps give peace of mind to see the process before it happens.
Fewer Office Visits Required
Invisalign requires very few adjustments compared to braces, which need routine checkups for any loose brackets or pain.
How Invisalign Improves Oral Health
Along with the aesthetic benefits, there are also many ways that Invisalign can improve your oral health. Here are a few of those significant health benefits:
Improved Periodontal Health
Due to the fact that Invisalign can be removed, that allows you to maintain excellent oral hygiene. Usually with braces, you have to carefully brush your teeth as they are basically a part of your teeth and more susceptible to pain.
Prevention of Tooth Wear
Crowded and/or misaligned teeth cause an uneven distribution during biting and chewing, which leads to premature wear and tear of your teeth. Invisalign prevents this.
With the correction of bite issues, Invisalign improves chewing which is the first step in the digestion process. When you chew better, you digest better.
Reduced Risk of Oral Injuries
If your teeth are crowded or uneven, believe it or not, it can cause a higher risk of damage in an accident or sports-related injury.
A straight smile can significantly enhance someone’s self-confidence without the process of having braces stuck on your teeth.
Invisalign truly can be an investment in your overall health and well-being. It is much more than a modern and convenient alternative to metal braces.
