For some people, it’s easier to suffer through the self-confidence issues they’ve developed from their asymmetrical smile rather than draw more attention to their teeth alignment issues. For them, wearing colorful braces 24-hours a day will attract the wrong kinds of attention to their teeth for months and possibly years.

For these people, the solution is clear, quite literally: invisible aligners. Here’s a high-level look at some of the top reasons people choose invisible aligners over conventional braces.

Like traditional braces, Invisalign™ clear aligners apply a constant, yet gentle, pressure on the teeth to gradually move them into their optimal alignment. But with Invisalign, it’s all a lot less obvious and it’s easy for the untrained eye to overlook them.

  1. Clear Aligner Trays Preserve Privacy

There’s not much to see, so there’s not much to talk about.

The aligners trays are clear and they conform to snuggly fit your teeth. There are no brackets or wires for people to spot, so they’re even “clearer” than clear braces – which are traditional-style braces that use clear components for a more discrete profile.

  1. You Can Remove them on the Fly

You can also remove Invisalign aligner trays yourself, whenever you want, though it’s recommended that you keep them in for at least 22 hours a day. Taking them out too often can drag out your treatment plan. Yet, the ability to quickly remove your trays for a selfie, an interview or to greet new faces is a significant perk of going with invisible aligners.

  1. No Dietary Restrictions

Because you can remove them on the fly, your diet will be less restrictive than it’d be if you’d gone with conventional braces. Been on your best behavior for months and want to indulge in a treat? Simple remove your trays before eating or drinking and make sure to brush before replacing your trays, to avoid creating new problems while you work to straighten out others.

  1. Most Age Groups

Another great advantage to this system is that it’s not just for adult cases. With the rollout of Invisalign Teen in the last few years, there’s now an individualized aligner system made to meet the needs of teenage patients. That opens more possibilities for minor corrections without worrying about committing to a full set of braces.
