Is Invisalign® a Better Orthodontic Alternative?

When your teeth aren’t aligned properly and need to be corrected, the conventional solution is to wear orthodontic braces long enough to realign them. The goal of orthodontic treatment is to bring all of your teeth into proper alignment to optimize your oral health and bite function. However, these days, traditional braces are no longer the only solution for achieving these results. For many patients, Invisalign® clear aligners can be a more discreet and convenient alternative to straightening crooked teeth, and the aligners can offer several important benefits throughout the course of treatment.

A more discreet solution

Invisalign® aligners are most notable for the clear, biocompatible acrylic they’re crafted from. When placed over your teeth, the aligners remain virtually invisible, keeping your entire treatment more discreet and almost completely unnoticeable. Because one of the greatest concerns with traditional braces is their highly conspicuous appearance, the ability to remain almost invisible is also one of the most notable benefits of Invisalign® clear aligners. For some patients, it can also be the deciding factor in choosing to straighten their crooked teeth.

A more convenient treatment plan

Keeping your orthodontic treatment discreet is an important advantage of clear Invisalign® aligners, but discretion isn’t the only aspect of your treatment they can improve. For example, besides impacting your smile’s appearance, conventional braces can also make things like cleaning your teeth and eating every day more complicated. Instead of having to work around brackets and wires, Invisalign® aligners allow you to accomplish these tasks more simply by temporarily removing them. Taking the aligners off will allow you to effectively brush and floss your teeth without needing additional interdental cleaners, and eat your favorite foods without worrying about damaging your braces.

Highly effective orthodontic results

The fact that Invisalign® clear aligners can make treatment more convenient is part of what makes them an increasingly more popular orthodontic solution. However, they’re only successful because the customized aligners can be designed to address a wide range of specific orthodontic issues. This means more people can enjoy the benefits of straightening their crooked teeth with optimal results, and without worrying about the common inconveniences that can sometimes accompany traditional orthodontic braces.
