One of the most popular forms of orthodontic treatment available in our office is Invisalign clear aligner trays. We’ve found that more and more adults are choosing to treat their orthodontic issues because they don’t have to spend years in conventional metal braces. Invisalign can correct many of the same issues as traditional braces, without the inconveniences.
Some of the many benefits of clear aligner trays include:
- Improved comfort. We all know that traditional metal braces utilize a system of wires and brackets. They have the potential to cut the inside of the mouth, causing sores, and can be painful during periodic tightening. With the Invisalign aligner straightening method, patients enjoy the benefit of comfortable, custom fit trays that will not damage the inside of the mouth.
- Improved hygiene. Keeping the teeth and gums clean with traditional braces can be difficult. The brackets can easily trap food which can lead to plaque buildup and eventually tooth decay or gum disease. The aligner trays are removable, so patients can properly brush and floss.
- No more food restrictions. Many of you may remember the long list of foods to avoid that your friends were given when they came home with their new braces. Because clear aligner trays can be removed while you eat, you can still enjoy some of your favorite foods that were major “no’s”with traditional braces. Just make sure to adequately clean teeth before putting the trays back in.
- Improved aesthetics. It is impossible to hide traditional brackets. In fact, many younger patients opt for brightly colored wires and brackets as part of the braces process. For adults, particularly ones with careers in which image is important, showing braces may not be desired. Clear plastic aligner trays are discreet so you can straighten your teeth practically invisibly.
