With the advances in technology, there are more options for straightening your teeth than ever before. So how do you know which to choose? The important thing to remember is that your goal is to have straighter teeth; how you go about getting them will depend on your lifestyle and what you are willing to do to reach that goal.Traditional braces can be more challenging to clean, require more frequent visits, and be more painful. But, whether you choose to go the conventional route or clear aligners, you will get that beautiful smile you’ve been wanting. Litchfield Dental Associates can help you, whichever you choose.
3 Benefits of Choosing Invisalign
Invisalign is a cutting-edge technology using clear aligners to fix:
- Biting Imperfections
Why choose Invisalign over traditional braces? Here are the top benefits of Invisalign clear aligners.
Cleaning is Easier
Food can easily get stuck in traditional metal braces, making it difficult to remove the food. With clear aligners, you won’t have to worry about having to work around the braces. In addition, aligners are easy to remove, which allows you to brush and floss normally.
Certain foods have been known to damage the brackets and wires of traditional braces, so there is usually a list your dentist gives you of foods to avoid. With Invisalign aligners, it’s easy to remove your aligners when you have to eat. So you can eat all the foods you love without worry!
It will take time to get used to any new appliance in your mouth. However, clear aligners are generally more comfortable for two reasons:
- There are no sharp edges that can irritate your cheeks.
- Clear aligners don’t need to be tightened regularly by your dentist, which can cause a lot of pain.
With Invisalign, the edges are soft and designed to fit comfortably in your mouth. Your dentist will give you multiple sets of aligners to change every two weeks. These are designed to slowly and gradually help shift your teeth to their desired placement. You may feel a slight tightness after changing the aligner, but that should go away in a day or two as your mouth adjusts.
