If you have crooked teeth, bite imperfections, or spacing issues, your dentist might have presented Invisalign® or braces as potential treatments. While both have it’s pros and cons, here are some advantages of getting Invisalign:

  1. Aesthetically Pleasing
  2. Many people choose Invisalign for the aesthetic benefit. Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic and slide on tightly to your teeth, which makes them nearly undetectable. Having metal braces on your teeth can lower your confidence levels, but with Invisalign you can straighten your teeth and be less self-conscious about smiling!

  3. Removable
  4. With Invisalign, you can pop your aligners on and off at any time. This is a plus because you take your aligners off when eating, which allows you to consume all your favorite foods! Whereas with braces you have to limit what you consume in order to avoid potentially breaking the wires or getting food stuck in hard-to-reach areas. In addition, having removable aligners makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene. With braces, you have to maneuver around the wires and brackets when brushing and flossing. In contrast, you can brush and floss frustration-free with Invisalign.

  5. Comfortable
  6. Invisalign is both convenient and comfortable to wear. Unlike braces, you don’t have irritating metal edges that can scrape the insides of your cheeks or cut your tongue. The surface of the aligners feel smooth, and each aligner is fitted perfectly for your gum line for optimal comfort. Invisalign also requires fewer visits to your dentist than braces, which can make the whole experience feel more smooth-sailing.
