When you see someone with a beautiful, healthy smile, what comes to mind? Do you compare your smile and feel a little less confident? If so, you are not alone. Having a less than superstar smile is more common than you think. But who wears traditional braces anymore? In between work and family life demands, not to mention the age factor, many people simply avoid correcting the misaligned teeth due to embarrassment.

Thankfully, Invisalign has changed the way adults can perfect their smiles. Invisalign has taken the dental world by storm for so many reasons.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign are the braces everyone wishes they had back in the day. Instead of using the traditional metal wires, smooth and clear plastic is molded into a pair of almost invisible aligners. Being called metal mouth is a thing of the past!

These modern-day braces snap right into place on your teeth without the need for brackets or wires. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign braces only need to be exchanged for a new set every two weeks. As time goes on, your teeth will begin to slowly straighten.

The Benefits of Invisalign include:

Treats Most Dental Issues

When Invisalign made its debut, it was made without warning that its unable to treat severe cases. Metal braces are better for people who have severe dental issues. Invisalign braces, on the other hand, are designed to treat a variety of dental concerns like overbites, underbites and misaligned teeth. The best part is, no one will know you’re wearing Invisalign. They are almost completely invisible to the naked eye.

They are Removable

One of the biggest benefits that come with Invisalign is being able to remove them. Traditional braces can trap food against the teeth, essentially making dental hygiene a nightmare. Being able to remove the Invisalign braces to eat and clean your aligners not only makes them easier to use, but also reduce the risk of infection due to trapped food. Who wants bread in their braces anyway?

Fewer Dental Office Visits

Another huge benefit that Invisalign has is that patients won’t have to visit their dental office too often. Unlike traditional braces that require routine inspection and maintenance, Invisalign allows you to get on with living, without having to worry about finding time for follow-up appointments.
