How Do Invisalign Braces Offer Both Cosmetic And Health Benefits?

invisalign bracesAre you looking for a clear alternative to traditional braces? Invisalign braces are the answer! Typically, this technique for straightening teeth depends on nearly invisible clear aligners. Just like conventional metal braces, Invisalign braces correct similar dental issues.


The only difference comes in that Invisalign trays are nearly invisible to the naked eye, and you can remove them at will. Since wearing Invisalign braces is almost the same as wearing no braces, it becomes the ideal substitute to metal braces for young adults and professionals who wish to have a better smile without feeling weird about their appearance.


There are many convincing reasons for choosing Invisalign treatment over conventional orthodontic treatment. Generally, the benefits offered by Invisalign can be classified into various categories.


Cosmetic Benefits of Invisalign Braces


First, we have aesthetic benefits. The key difference between traditional metal braces and Invisalign aligners is that Invisalign braces are created from clear plastic. They are everything but invisible to the naked eye. Invisalign aligners assist in maintaining the appearance of your smile and help to reposition your teeth at the same time.


Health Benefits of Clear Invislign Aligners


Second, there are oral health advantages of Invisalign. If you’re wearing Invisalign trays, maintaining the general health of your teeth can be much easier. Traditional metal braces usually act as a trap for food particles, and thus, make it very hard to correctly or adequately clean your teeth. One of the reasons Dentistry on Broadway recommends Invisalign braces is because you can actually align your teeth while you maintain them via flossing and regular brushing.


Other Advantages Of Invisalign Braces

Lastly, there are practical advantages to Invisalign. Invisalign braces, unlike metal braces, are removable and never need constant tightening or adjustment. While the aligners should be worn for a minimum of 20 to 22 hours every day, they’re removable for photographs, meal times, and oral hygiene for those who want their natural smile to shine all through.


If you’re a patient who is keen on contact sports, then Invisalign will never slow you down. For those who want to wear a mouthguard, just remove the aligners and you are set. Also, you never have to be concerned about sharp metal edges bruising or cutting your gums and cheese in your active or daily life.
