The prospect of having to wear braces is usually not one of life’s higher moments. If you are wondering about the benefits of Invisalign over traditional braces, then read on.
As a Certified Invisalign Specialist in Delta, we want you to know that you can correct your teeth alignment issues with Invisalign rather than with traditional braces.
Traditional braces use small metal or ceramic brackets that sit all across your teeth. This is the system orthodontists have used for years. By tightening and positioning the wires in the brackets, dentists have been able to straighten teeth by controlling how the wire brackets are aligned.
Yet, traditional braces are not very attractive. Especially if you are an adult or an older teen who is very conscious of your appearance, then wearing braces is not something to look forward to.
Enter Invisalign. Invisalign uses clear plastic correctors that look very similar to mouth guards. These correctors are personally fitted to your teeth, and are replaced about every two weeks. Best of all, Invisalign braces are removable so you can clean your teeth after eating and at bedtime.
What are the benefits of Invisalign over traditional braces?
– You can eat whatever you like. Are popcorn, nuts, candy or chewing gum, things you love? Well, you don’t have to give them up with Invisalign braces.
– Invisalign straighteners are plastic and virtually pain-free. Traditional braces are on your teeth for a long period of time and get adjusted every time you visit the dentist. Usually your teeth hurt after each adjustment.
– Invisalign braces being removable, you are able to brush and floss with ease.
– Best of all, you don’t have to be embarrassed with a mouth full of metal.[/list]
