Top 5 Reasons To Use Invisalign Over Braces

Welcome back to another blog by Eugene Family Dental! Today, we would love to talk to you about an amazing orthodontic option that many patients prefer over traditional braces: Invisalign.

Crooked teeth don’t discriminate. It does not matter your background, your creed, or your class, because teeth generally don’t care. But what WE care about is helping you overcome this obstacle. Invisalign can help you do just that.

Let’s talk about the five main reasons why our patients choose Invisalign over traditional orthodontic treatment. Please feel free to contact our team if you have any questions or concerns.

Reason #1: Invisalign is simply more comfortable.

Invisalign aligners are made up of a clear plastic material that is simply gentler in the mouth when compared to traditional orthodontics. For starters, there simply are not any metal brackets or wires to poke, scratch, or rub your delicate oral tissue. Invisalign aligners are smooth and are adjusted to fit your mouth without causing discomfort.

They are also more comfortable because they there are no wires to tighten! With traditional orthodontics, there are numerous times throughout your treatment when the wire needs to be changed out for a tighter wire, thus further shifting your teeth. This process and the adjustment period to the new wire is simply unpleasant and can be downright painful. I’m sure you have heard the horror stories — teeth so sore that only soft foods can be eaten. We don’t want you to have to go through that.

With Invisalign, there is no pain. When you change out your aligner, all you will experience is a very tolerable pressure. Invisalign aligners move your teeth gently and effectively so that your orthodontic treatment doesn’t interfere with your life.

Reason #2: Invisalign aligners are 100 percent removable.

Did you know that Invisalign aligners are completely removable from your mouth? Try that with traditional braces! Invisalign aligners are designed to be removed for eating, drinking, and hygiene purposes. You can also take them out for special occasions! Your aligners will never be in your way.

However, you do need to be careful. Your aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours every day in order to create the desired results. A common problem with teenage users is that they do not wear their aligners as directed. Please be careful and wear are your aligners for the recommended 22 hours each day.

Reason #3: Invisalign is easy to keep clean.

Did you know that traditional braces are actually quite difficult to keep clean? That’s one reason why orthodontists put such restrictions on the patient’s diet — no popcorn, chewing gum, etc. Many patients even develop gum disease for decay problems due to poor dental hygiene.

With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about that stuff. All you have to do to keep your mouth clean is brush and floss like normal. Because the aligners are removable, there is nothing to catch food debris and bacteria. You can maintain your great oral health and never have to worry about your braces trapping unwanted substances when you choose Invisalign.

Reason #4: Invisalign is nearly invisible when worn!

Arguably one of the best things about Invisalign is the fact that they are almost invisible when they’re in your mouth! Because they’re made of the clear plastic material, they’re nearly impossible to spot when worn. This means that your aligners will never put a damper on your personal appearance and will only do their job and improve your smile.

Reason #5: Invisalign produces high-quality results.

Are you worried that Invisalign won’t produce the same great results as traditional braces? Don’t fret! Invisalign works great for many people and will produce amazing results. However, it’s not for everyone. Talk to our team to find out if Invisalign is right for you.
