If you are looking to straighten your teeth, Invisalign is a great option. Contrary to the traditional bracket with wire braces, Invisalign is an advanced system made with transparent plastic aligners which will adjust the teeth up to the time that they reach the desired results. Because they are much more subtle than traditional braces, they have become one of the most popular treatments found in the market now.

The following are the benefits of having Invisalign clear braces:

Invisalign corrects different types of imperfections in the smile

Invisalign may address mild and moderate issues like misaligned teeth, gapped teeth, crowding, and crookedness. If the condition is too severe, then the dentist may recommend that you get traditional braces. However, many problems can be solved with Invisalign clear braces.

The Invisalign aligner is transparent, so they are subtle when worn

Some adults may wish to have their teeth straightened; however, they are too concerned that metal wires with brackets can be too noticeable. Invisalign are made of plastic and are clear and thin so they can be worn discreetly.  Colleagues, family, and friends will not even know that you are wearing them!

There is no restriction of the food you can eat

Before you eat, you can remove the aligners, and you can eat almost anything you want, unlike conventional braces. However, you must ensure that you clean your teeth before putting the aligners back in.

Oral hygiene is simple

With conventional braces, you will need to use a special tool to clean between the teeth, wires, and brackets. When the debris and plaque are left behind, then oral health may be compromised.

However, with Invisalign, you can remove them to brush your teeth like normal, making the process much easier.

Invisalign aligners are comfortable

When you wear traditional braces, discomfort may occur. However, Invisalign braces are said to be more comfortable and are often worn for a shorter time than traditional braces.
