If you’re seeking a straighter smile but don’t want to get braces, Invisalign® is a great solution. Using clear trays, patients don’t need to wear metal brackets and can get a discreet, almost invisible look while straightening their teeth. Dr. Jason Revestir and his team at Temple Valley Dental Group in Kaneohe share some of the best benefits of using Invisalign below.
Benefits of Getting Invisalign
1. Discreet Look
Whether braces make you uncomfortable or you’re an adult and don’t want to go through the traditional straightening process, Invisalign gives patients a completely discreet look. Because they’re made out of clear trays, most people don’t even notice you’re wearing them.
2. Comfortable Feel
Frequently, brackets and wires from braces can end up rubbing the gums or causing irritations. Invisalign’s trays are comfortable and don’t use metal that can become painful throughout the treatment process so you don’t have to worry about having trouble with comfort.
3. Can Remove When Needed
Foods can easily get stuck in the metal brackets and between wires, making it difficult to keep them clean. One of the benefits of Invisalign is that you can remove them whenever you need to, whether it’s to eat or take a few minutes off from them. It’s recommended for patients to wear them the majority of the day, however.
4. Shorter Treatment Period
Most braces treatments last an average of two years while Invisalign treatments are relatively shorter, which is about six to 18 months long. Each patient’s smile is different, but you can probably end up wearing them for a shorter time, getting you to your dream smile sooner rather than later.
