Invisalign clear aligners are fast becoming popular among patients for straightening their crooked teeth. These aligners are made from polyurethane plastic and are removable. Users are recommended to remove the Invisalign aligners during brushing, flossing, and eating.
Invisalign clear aligners offer a wide range of benefits over traditional metallic braces. These benefits include:
Invisalign clear aligners are removable and can be removed during eating, brushing and flossing. This prevents food particles from getting stuck in the aligners and makes it easy to clean the Invisalign clear aligners.
Invisalign clear aligners are almost invisible to other people while talking and eating. Unlike braces, other people cannot come to know that you are undergoing dental alignment treatments and it also does not spoil your smile and overall facial appearance.
People wearing traditional metallic braces are required to avoid certain food items which are hard to chew or stick in nature for preventing your braces from getting damaged or food items getting stuck in your braces. However, as Invisalign clear aligners are removable, patients can eat anything they want without experiencing restriction in food items in the case of metallic braces.
Invisalign clear aligners are extremely comfortable and allow wearers to go about their regular routine without any feeling of discomfort or uneasiness. Invisalign clear aligners do not disturb the soft gum tissues in your mouth, as in the case of bulky metallic braces.
Invisalign clear aligners also function as a nightguard which is helpful in case you have a habit of grinding or clenching your teeth.
Invisalign clear aligners work exactly how traditional metallic braces function. They apply controlled force on your teeth towards changing their position and obtaining the desired alignment. The only difference between Invisalign clear aligners and traditional braces are that Invisalign clear aligners are not visible and traditional braces can be easily noticed by others.
Maintaining good dental and oral health habits like brushing at least twice a day, flossing your teeth and cleaning your aligners is important. This helps in preventing dental decay and other oral health issues.
