Straight teeth will make you feel more confident while providing an investment in good long-term oral health, but adults and teenagers alike often don’t want to deal with the look and discomfort of traditional metal braces. Invisalign® features clear braces that fit over your teeth and are virtually unnoticeable by others. They’re available for both adults and teens, and they have many advantages over metal braces.
5 Advantages of Invisalign
1. Simple Care
Invisalign clear braces are easy to care for. You just take them out and brush them when you brush your own teeth at night. Metal braces can make brushing and flossing difficult, even leading to tooth decay over the course of your treatment. Removable braces solve this problem completely.
2. Active Lifestyle
For those with an active lifestyle, metal braces can cause injury during certain activities, making mouthguards a must. With Invisalign, you can simply remove your clear braces if you’re playing a rough game of pick-up basketball at the gym. You won’t have to worry about metal braces damaging the inside of your mouth if you get hit.
3. No Food Restrictions
When you wear metal braces, foods like popcorn, bagels, corn on the cob, and whole apples are off-limits. If you don’t want to give up on your favorite foods, choose Invisalign clear braces. There are no food restrictions, although when eating sticky or sugary foods, it’s essential to be vigilant about your dental care to keep you teeth and gums healthy while you’re working toward a beautiful, straight smile.
Metal braces can be uncomfortable for your gums and the inside of your mouth—and when they are, there’s not much you can do about it. Once you get used to Invisalign clear braces, you’ll barely notice them. If you’re uncomfortable in certain situations, simply remove them and put them back in when you’re ready.
5. They’re Invisible
You might not want to make a big presentation at work when you’re wearing metal braces on your teeth. With Invisalign, no one will notice you have them on. Whether you need a confidence boost at work, on a date, or out with friends, clear braces are the best way to straighten your teeth without compromising your look.
