3 Major Benefits of Using Invisalign® to Straighten Your Teeth , Manhattan, New York

Teeth that are crooked or misaligned may detract from your natural beauty when you smile, but so does a mouthful of metal. Fortunately, traditional brackets and wires are not the only way to straighten teeth. If you want to correct crookedness, crowding, or spacing without wearing permanent metal braces for years, Invisalign® could be the answer. Here are just a few advantages of this orthodontic treatment.  

3 Benefits of Invisalign 

1. The Aligners Are Transparent

Invisalign trays are essentially invisible, which is one of the main reasons people—especially adults—opt for them instead of traditional metal braces. No one will know you’re in the process of straightening your teeth unless you choose to share this information. Likewise, the aligners will not be noticeable in any photographs you take over the course of treatment. 

2. The Aligners Are Removable 

InvisalignMetal brackets and wires often loosen and can even break if the wearer bites down on something hard or chewy. They also make the teeth more vulnerable to decay and cavities because it’s harder to floss and brush around them. As a result, there is a long list of foods you cannot enjoy while wearing traditional braces. Since Invisalign trays are removable, though, wearing them will not impact your diet at all. 

3. The Aligners Are Comfortable 

Traditional braces can irritate the insides of your cheeks and even cause permanent scarring. Clear aligners, on the other hand, are totally smooth and perfectly seamless. Although some tightness and minor discomfort is normal every time you change trays, the aligners tend to be more comfortable than other orthodontic appliances.
