They are Transparent – Invisalign aligners are completely transparent. When you put them on, most people won’t even know that you are currently wearing them. This means that you can go out in public, talk to friends, or coworkers, present an important paper, or pitch an idea to a major investor, all while actively working to straighten your teeth. Our patients believe a major benefit of Invisalign is to continue in their normal lives without worrying about the stigma that can be associated with braces.
Eat What You Want – Braces come with an extensive list of restricted foods. You can no longer bite into an apple, or eat sticky foods or candy that they used to enjoy. Invisalign aligners are removable. When it is time to eat, you simply take out your aligners and enjoy your meal or snack. When you are done, you can put your aligners back in and continue the work of improving your smile.
Simple Care Practices – Invisalign care and maintenance are far simpler than the requirements for braces. Braces can require special care steps and equipment. In contrast, Invisalign aligners are simply removed, then brush your aligners, brush your teeth, and replace the aligners.
Reduce Your Pain – Patients who use braces often complain about the discomfort that they experience throughout the process. In contrast, Invisalign aligners don’t have the sharp edges or high potential to cut or scrape the insides of the cheeks or lips.
Game On – If you live an active lifestyle, braces can often get in the way. Doctors recommend that you avoid contact sports like football, rugby, or even basketball due to the potential to have a substantial injury if you are hit in the mouth and cut by braces. If you want to play a pickup game of basketball while you have Invisalign aligners, you can simply take them out for the game, and then put them back in.
Improved Outlook – Our patients experience a huge increase in their perceptions of themselves while using Invisalign. When you don’t have to worry about the appearance of your teeth, or if they are going to leave a negative impression, you can focus more on the things that matter to you. This makes a difference when you have to focus on making sure that a key presentation goes right!
