Why Choose Invisalign?
Everyone gets orthodontics for their own unique reasons, and there is similar personal motivation when it comes to choosing between conventional metal braces and clear aligners. Since its inception, Invisalign has been a popular alignment method, discreetly shifting teeth into their proper positions and transforming the smiles of adults and teens. Wondering why you should choose Invisalign? Ask the orthodontic team at Mariana Orthodontics in Monroe, WA.
The Braces Are Barely Noticeable
The biggest draw of Invisalign is the composition of the trays used to align your teeth. They are incredibly thin, clear, and fit snugly against the teeth. In other words, no one will notice your orthodontics unless you point them out. And all the while, your smile will get straighter and stronger and more beautiful, seemingly by magic.
Treatment Is Fast
There are several types of Invisalign treatment, depending on a patient’s level of misalignment or whether they only want to fix some gaps, crooked teeth, or overcrowding. The average Invisalign treatment lasts about one year, but some patients may only need six months to correct what’s out of order. Ask your orthodontist about the version that’s best for you: Invisalign Full, Invisalign Lite, Invisalign Express, or, especially for adolescents, Invisalign Teen.
You Have Freedom
It’s natural for braces-wearers to get tired of their teeth being held captive by hardware around the clock. As long as you wear Invisalign for 20 to 22 hours a day, you can remove them when you need a break or want to give your teeth a little freedom.
Eat Whatever You Want
There are eating restrictions for people who have metal or clear braces. No hard foods that could crack a bracket, no chewy foods that could pull out a wire, no biting into foods you really love like pizza crust and popcorn apples. There are always ways around orthodontic-related food limitations – cutting foods into small bites or cooking things until they’re soft – but Invisalign-wearers only have to remove their aligners to eat whatever they want, whenever they want.
Convenient and Easy
Aligning your smile is a commitment and a big job, but when it comes to responsibility, Invisalign has minimum requirements. Wear the trays nearly all day every day, clean the trays daily, brush and floss your teeth as often as possible, change the trays every two weeks, visit your orthodontist as instructed. The process is convenient, easy, and proven. Invisalign works.
The brackets and wires of conventional braces have been known to get in the way of comfort. The hardware can irritate the lips and soft tissues of the mouth, though over time patients do get used to this reality. Invisalign is comfy from the start. The smooth trays do not cause any irritation and, once you get used to the feeling of each aligner, they will fit right into your lifestyle.
Big Confidence Boost
Anyone who has ever been self-conscious about the alignment of their teeth or felt uncomfortable about a problematic bite has also suffered a ding to their confidence. Choose Invisalign and you’ll notice just how quickly the most visible teeth shift into alignment. These early results deliver amazing motivation and a huge confidence boost that sticks around.
