Many of us search for the best method to correct pesky problems that we may have with our unaligned teeth. While traditional metal braces have always been the number one choice for many, now with so many options available at our fingertips, we have the upper hand.
Wearing metal brackets, for sometimes a few years, is not something that many people look forward to. The time needed to care for them and the changes they cause to our physical appearance can be a bit unappealing.
Luckily, if you are considering other options for you or a family member, Invisalign can be a fantastic choice and Heroes Dental can provide them. With Invisalign you have the best of both worlds; you get your teeth fixed and no one can even tell you are in the middle of a treatment.
There are many advantages of having Invisalign rather than traditional braces, from easier cleaning to overall treatment time. Let’s take a closer look as to why you should choose Invisalign with us here at Heroes Dental.
Cleaning Made Easier
We all know that braces can be a challenge to keep clean. It can be a tedious task brushing and flossing after every single snack and meal. In order to prevent plaque buildup and tooth decay with braces, you need to keep up cleanliness like clockwork.
With Invisalign, having your mouth clean is a simpler process. Since the aligners are removable, all you have to do is take them off before you eat. Once you are done munching down just brush and floss like usual (believe us…it’s a lot easier than trying to get into all the nooks and crannies of traditional metal braces). Put your Invisalign retainers back on and voila, back to treatment.
Stay Comfortable and Save Time
With brackets and metal wires in your mouth, as well as frequent adjustments, traditional braces can be uncomfortable at times. There can be moments where wires break and cause small lacerations in your mouth. The last thing you want to have to worry about is heading back to your orthodontist to correct these issues, especially as we are all busy with our day to day routines.
Invisalign, on the other hand, offers comfort at every turn. With no sharp or protruding edges that can cut your gums, and no great deal of force to straighten your teeth, Invisalign helps to reduce the damage normally caused by metal braces, including gum disease and cavities.
Plus, you have the advantage of removing them for brief periods of time when eating throughout the day.
It’s not a secret that many people feel like braces change their entire look. We might not feel as confident with metal braces in our mouths and at times a little over conscious that people are looking at us.
Invisalign is the perfect option when it comes to not changing your physical looks. The clear aligners are hardly noticeability, making it nearly impossible for others to even know you are going through treatment. You even have the option of removing them for a few hours for that special event you are attending. Whether you choose to smile or not, the choice is yours, but with Invisalign, you will feel at ease knowing you can show your best grin!
Treatment Time Reduced
Having to constantly attend appointments can be tiresome and time consuming. Traditional braces can take up to two years or more for proper treatments to be in full effect.
Invisalign treatment can be over, in some cases, within a year to a year and a half. Your teeth will be straight in no time and you will feel better than ever.
Metal braces can put you at risk of tooth decay and gum disease. If you aren’t effectively maintaining your oral hygiene, leftover bacteria can cause unwanted mouth sores, bleeding gums, bad breath, and tooth loss.
Invisalign can decrease your risks for such infections with the easy removal of the aligners, making it easier to keep your mouth clean and free of bacteria.
