Most people know that Invisalign® aligners are a near-invisible orthodontic alternative to wire braces (discreetness is one of its main selling points), but here are some hidden advantages of the 21st-century orthodontic miracle.
No surprises! The Invisalign® system uses a 3D scanner to assess treatment needs and create an entire set of custom aligners at once. Final smile is visualized from the get-go—no surprises.
No metal, no plastic. Aligners are made from medical-grade polyurethane resin (not plastic, which isn’t strong or safe enough). No need to worry about sores from brackets rubbing against delicate oral tissue or broken wires leading to an orthodontic emergency.
Very little pain compared to braces. Yes, teeth are moving and can feel sore, especially after getting new trays, but largely are not anywhere near as painful as traditional braces can be. You can take ibuprofen to mitigate discomfort and make sure to avoid sticky/hard foods like taffy and other candies to minimize sensation of loose teeth.
Enjoy greater freedom overall. Fewer office visits, less time sitting in the “dentist chair” and fewer food restrictions (nothing like no popcorn or candy that can get stuck under wires/in brackets) will result in a much easier experience than braces. There are special tools needed to clean teeth properly and you’ll be able to remove trays for special events (like a wedding).
These are benefits just during treatment—the greatest benefit post-treatment is all the years to come living with a beautiful, healthy smile.
