A Few Reasons Why Invisalign® Is a Good Idea

For many older teen and adult patients with malocclusion, the importance of straightening their crooked teeth is obvious. Therefore, being able to do so without having to wear traditional metal braces can sometimes seem like it’s too good to be true. With Invisalign® clear aligners, however, increasingly more patients are learning that it isn’t. Using advanced, digital imaging and measuring technology, we can design a series of comfortable, discreet Invisalign® aligners that offer the same teeth-straightening benefits as orthodontic braces. While helping you correct your tooth alignment, the aligners make your orthodontic treatment significantly more comfortable and convenient, as well.

Straighter teeth work better.

The most important reason to consider Invisalign® aligners is because straighter teeth are necessary for the good of your long-term oral health. When your teeth aren’t aligned properly, they can grind and press against each other when you bite and chew, damaging their structures and leading to further bite problems. Invisalign® clear aligners have been proven to successfully correct malocclusion to help patients avoid these and other problems related to crooked teeth.

Clear aligners are almost invisible.

Some patients may express concern over having to wear conspicuous braces to straighten their teeth, especially if their appearance plays an important role in their professional lives. Besides their effectiveness, their ability to remain virtually undetectable are another important benefit to Invisalign® aligners. Each aligner is made from clear, BPA-free acrylic and design to fit comfortably and securely over your teeth so they don’t move when you bite, chew, and speak.

Invisalign® is more convenient.

Eliminating the need for brackets and wires also has several functional benefits that make living with Invisalign® much more convenient. For example, the aligners are temporarily removable, making it easier to brush and floss your teeth or enjoy your favorite meals without having to work around your braces. In the case of keeping your teeth and gums cleans, this means Invisalign® aligners reduce your risks of developing tooth decay or gum disease during your treatment, which result from excessive plaque and tartar buildup.
