If you are considering orthodontic treatment, there are a number of options that will give you a stunning smile. But there is one clear option that has several advantages over braces. Invisalign is a cutting-edge technology that uses a series of clear aligners to correct bite problems, crowding, and spacing issues. The experts at Heller Orthodontics share this information on the top six reasons to choose Invisalign:

1. Cleaning is a Breeze

Braces make cleaning your teeth difficult. Food gets stuck in the areas around the brackets and wires, and if it is not removed, it can lead to tooth decay and even gum disease. With Invisalign, you take the aligners out to floss and brush your teeth so you can maintain good oral hygiene.

2. Eat What You Like

With Invisalign, you can eat what you want because you take the aligners out to eat. You won’t have to worry about not eating certain foods as you do with braces because they could damage the brackets and wires.

3. More Comfortable

Invisalign is much more comfortable than braces because they are made from a smooth material. Unlike braces, there are no sharp edges that will irritate the soft tissues in your mouth. And also, unlike braces, Invisalign does not have to be tightened by your orthodontist, which can cause significant discomfort. With Invisalign, each aligner is slightly adjusted from the previous one, so you should only feel a minor tightness when you put in a new aligner.

4. Virtually Invisible

This is what people love the most about Invisalign. Because they are made from clear plastic, they are barely noticeable. No one really wants a mouthful of metal and Invisalign offers both teens and adults a virtually invisible alternative.

5. More Convenient

When you wear braces, you have to visit the orthodontist frequently to get the wires tightened. With Invisalign, you will have multiple sets of aligners so that you can change them on your own. You will have to visit the orthodontist to check on your progress, but it won’t be as often as it would be with braces.

6. No Tooth Discoloration

Some people end up with slight discoloration or white spots on their teeth when wearing braces where the brackets were attached to their teeth. This is usually the result of eating a lot of sugar, other staining foods, or poor oral hygiene. Since Invisalign aligners are not attached to your teeth, and you can remove them for cleaning, you won’t experience any tooth discoloration.

While Invisalign might be your treatment of choice, not everyone is a candidate for this treatment option. It will depend on the severity of your orthodontic issues. If Invisalign isn’t right for you, we have other discreet treatment options, such as ceramic braces.
