Braces are the traditional option, but Invisalign® in Thousand Oaks, CA is becoming ever more popular. Why? The treatment comes with a range of benefits to the patient and the cosmetic dentist involved. Here are 5 of the top benefits that come with Invisalign®:

1. Patient Comfort

The adjustment period for Invisalign® is fairly short and you don’t have to get used to wires and metal pieces in your mouth. You’ll also have a reduced risk of emergency like poking wires, or broken brackets.

2. Nearly Undetectable Appearance

For the most part, it will take others a while to notice you’re wearing your Invisalign® trays. The trays are designed to be undetectable and fit your teeth perfectly. Even as your teeth are shifting, no one is the wiser.

3. Eat as You Please

Popcorn, nuts and even the occasional caramel-coated candy bar can stay in your routine of guilty pleases. When you eat, simply pop out your trays and pop them back in when you’re done.

4. Easy Maintenance of Oral Hygiene

Perhaps the biggest boon to all involved in Invisalign® is the easy oral hygiene. In fact, you won’t have to vary your routine much to accommodate your Invisalign® trays. You might brush your teeth and/or your trays before putting them back after a meal, but you won’t find any impediment to regular flossing and brushing.

5. Limited Irritation and Pain

Brackets and wires can cut the insides of your mouth and cause canker sores due to irritation. Once you get used to Invisalign®, it’ll be easy to forget they trays are there and working magic on your smile.
