Benefits of Invisalign
Instead of traditional braces that are firmly affixed to your teeth until treatment is finished, Invisalign consists of clear, almost undetectable aligners that are customized to fit over your teeth. Because they are so unobtrusive in appearance, they are an aesthetically pleasing choice for braces. Most people will never even notice that you’re wearing them.
These clear braces are easy to take off when you eat, so you don’t have to give up foods to prevent damage to your braces. You also remove them to floss and brush your teeth, which makes it easier to keep your teeth clean and healthy. Although they are gentle as they move teeth into place, you’ll see results faster. They also require fewer trips to the orthodontist, making it more simple to fit treatment into your busy schedule.
Invisalign Works for Every Age
Although adults appreciate this discrete method for straightening their teeth, Invisalign works well for any age. Younger patients often struggle more with keeping their teeth clean with traditional braces, so that can be an important benefit for them.
However, Invisalign is more expensive than other forms of braces, so parents are more likely to opt for traditional braces for their kids. Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide what will work best for your family and your budget.
