Top 3 Reasons You Want Invisalign Instead of Braces
For those of us that don’t have the straightest teeth out there, braces are commonly recommended to us as a way to treat our teeth. As time progresses, advancements in technology and equipment in alignment continues to evolve. Now there are many different forms of alignment processes that we can use to treat our teeth, so in this article we will discuss the top three reasons you may want Invisalign in particular.
To begin, many are not drawn by the appearance of metal braces. Especially adults that want to align their teeth at a later time in life, may not want metal braces interfering with their day-to-day lives. Invisalign offer is a virtually invisible appearance, to discreetly make changes to your smile.
Just as important as appearance is comfort. Metal braces are often tightened and can be very uncomfortable. Aligners are extremely comfortable as they are custom-made and fit snugly over your teeth without brackets and wires. Invisalign aligners are also removable, so you can remove them if the occasion calls for it, something you would never be able to do with metal braces.
Teeth that are not aligned properly can cause problems with eating, teeth cleanliness, and can even affect your speech. Proper tooth alignment can improve the overall function of your mouth, and keep your teeth clean to prevent cavities and gum disease.
How Invisalign Works
After an initial consultation, custom-made impressions and photographs of your teeth will be taken to make sure the aligners used in the Invisalign process are perfect. Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically. These aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force to align your teeth in an efficient manner.
