Meta: Wondering if you should get Invisalign®? Here are five benefits to getting this innovative orthodontic treatment you may not have considered.
Getting braces as an adult isn’t really on many people’s list of things they can’t wait to do. After all, it’s hard to feel like people take you seriously in braces, they’re uncomfortable, they’re hard to clean, they take forever to see results, and they’re just generally a teenager thing, right?
But what about Invisalign®? Invisalign® braces aren’t exactly braces, but clear aligners that fit over the teeth and slowly realign them the same way braces do, only much more discreetly. They’re perfect for adults who want to look more professional and for those who only need minor adjustments to their bite. Here are a few more benefits to Invisalign® you may not have even considered!
It’s Clearly Different
The number one benefit to Invisalign® for most people? It’s clear! Most people can’t tell you’re wearing Invisalign® aligners, so you look professional at all times! Furthermore, should you need to remove your aligners for any reason, they come out easily and can be put back in quickly as well.
They Fix A Bunch of Problems
Invisalign® aligners can fix minor flaws, but they can also fix larger bite issues, such as crowding, underbites, overbites and crossbites, open bites, and gaps in the teeth.
As we mentioned before, Invisalign® aligners are easily removable, so if you need to take them out to eat or drink, to clean them, or to brush your own teeth, you can easily do so. Just remember to put them back in! It’s recommended that you wear them 22 hours a day.
Lose or break an aligner? Teething puppy find one? Oops. Don’t worry, your aligners are replaceable. In fact, you probably won’t wear yours for more than a month before switching to a new set. Replacement aligners are affordable, and emergency replacements are available if you lose or damage one.
Weird to say that orthodontics could be comfortable, but that’s exactly what people say about Invisalign® braces. They are much more comfortable than wire braces, and they’re even comfortable on their own.
