Invisalign Looks Better
The biggest benefit of Invisalign is that the aligners are virtually invisible. Adult patients love that colleagues and clients can’t see they are undergoing orthodontic treatment. Self-conscious teens do too.
You Can Take the Aligners Out to Eat
For best results Invisalign needs to be worn for 20 - 22 hours each day, which means you can take your aligners out when you are eating. This means you don’t have to change what you eat or how you eat it. With braces people find some types of foods difficult or uncomfortable to eat.
It’s Easier to Brush and Floss Your Teeth
As well as when eating and drinking, you’ll also remove your Invisalign retainers to brush your teeth. With nothing on your teeth to worry about, you can continue brushing and flossing as you did previously.
Fewer Consultations Required
With Invisalign, much of the orthodontist’s work happens before you wear your aligners.. There is no need to visit the orthodontics for adjustments so visits are kept to a minimum to check on progress. Few visits to the orthodontist means less time off work.
Comfortable to Wear
Moving teeth around with Invisalign is less uncomfortable than traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are made of a special plastic and fitted to each patient's mouth, so - unlike braces - there are typically no cuts on the inside cheeks or salt washes to deal with.
We are often asked “is it cheaper to get braces of Invisalign? Due to advances in the 3D scanning technology and the flexible material involved in making the aligners, the cost of Invisalign can be similar to braces.
