Invisalign braces are innovative tools for straightening teeth. They are clear aligners that allow for more discreet treatment of misaligned teeth and bite. Apart from preventing you from getting that perfect smile, misaligned or crooked teeth can also cause many other dental difficulties and problems, like TMJ disorder. Misalignment also makes it harder to clean teeth properly, which can lead to periodontal disease and other dental issues. While traditional braces have always been effective in correcting teeth alignment, they come with many disadvantages like discomfort and pain, not to mention being less than attractive. Invisalign braces makes for a better alternative, especially for adults who may find it embarrassing to wear conventional metal braces. Below are other ways that Invisalign braces are helpful in creating better, straighter smiles:
These clear braces are seamless and attractive as opposed to metal braces that can cause mouth to be misshapen because of the awkward chunks of metal that stand between the teeth and the lips. Invisalign aligners are less visible and less noticeable.
Because Invisalign braces are removable, they are also decidedly more comfortable to wear than regular braces, which can only be professionally removed once the treatment is done. Anytime you wish to remove your aligner for brief periods to eat, drink, or rest, Invisalign can be taken off and worn back on easily.
Clear braces also help reduce damage to teeth and gums. Whereas conventional braces often come with protruding bits of wire and metal that puncture and scratch the gums and the insides of the mouth, clear races are made of smooth materials that don’t have protruding or sharp edges that can injure any part of the mouth. Metal braces may also cause problems that didn’t exist before, like tooth demineralization and decay, which are not a risk with clear aligners.
