It can be a tough choice, especially for children with self-confidence issues – do you straighten crooked teeth with metal braces that will call attention to the teeth or do you go without? For those who decided to go without in their younger years, there’s still time to get that perfectly aligned smile promised by traditional braces. And doing so won’t require you to wear traditional metal braces, if you don’t want to. Take a look at how Invisalign® invisible aligners can straighten your smile without the rest of the world knowing about it.
Benefits of Straightening Teeth with Invisalign
The biggest draw to invisible aligners for most people is how discreet the aligner trays are. Even the sharpest of eyes out there will have trouble spotting invisible aligners on your teeth. And even if people do notice them, they’re still not as conspicuous as conventional metal braces. So you can wear the invisible aligner trays confidently.
Take a look at some of the other primary benefits of going with invisible aligners trays instead of conventional braces:
You can remove them at any time – unlike metal braces, which only an orthodontist can safely remove, you can pop out your invisible aligner trays anytime you want to.
They won’t restrict your diet – because you can remove them, you can keep eating the things you like to eat. With conventional braces, there are some food items that are simply off the menu until you have your braces removed.
Safer – with conventional braces, the metal parts affixed to your teeth can make trauma to the mouth even worse. With invisible aligners, there are no metal parts to damage your lips, tongue, teeth or gums should you experience trauma to the mouth.
As discreet as they are and as much flexibility as they offer, there are still some critical considerations you’ll need to be aware of before starting Invisalign treatment.
One of the biggest in the daily wear requirement. You’ll need to wear your aligners no less than 22 hours every day in order to keep your treatment on course and on time.
