Did you know? All orthodontists are technically dentists, but only around 5% of all dentists are also orthodontists.

And while orthodontists offer many options for patients interested in straitening their teeth, Invisalign braces are the only clear option free of brackets and wires. As one of the most popular braces alternatives on the market, Invisalign clear liners allow you to eat, work, and be involved socially without being concerned about your appearance — all while getting you a perfect smile.

There are countless benefits of using Invisalign braces to straighten your teeth and enhance your smile. The following are just a handful of them.

Invisible Appearance

First and foremost, Invisalign braces are completely invisible. Their total clarity allow you to get your teeth straightened without ever detracting from your face or smile. This is especially important to teens and young adults, who want to live life free of the awkwardness and discomfort typically caused by the look and feel of traditional braces.

Enhanced Comfort

Besides being totally see-through, Invisalign trays have none of the harsh metal components that are all too familiar to wearers of traditional braces. Instead, the liners are made out of smooth plastic, which is dramatically more comfortable than traditional metal braces. Ordinary braces can poke and even cut the inside of your mouth. Invisalign offers no such discomfort.

Improved Cleanliness

Invisalign trays are easily removable. Any time you need to eat, brush your teeth, or floss, the trays can be removed and then popped back in again effortlessly. Not only does it make cleaning your teeth easy and eating sanitary, but it also makes it easy to clean the Invisalign trays themselves, which can be done with your tooth brush. A clean mouth is a healthy mouth, and it’s critical to maintain your dental hygiene while your teeth are being straightened. Conventional braces can make this difficult, but with Invisalign, it’s a simple and easy process.

Saved Time

Using Invisalign braces can mean less of your valuable time spent at the orthodontist’s or dentist’s office. Invisalign liners only need maintenance every six weeks on average, whereas other teeth straightening systems can require more, and more lengthy, appointments.

Unrestricted Diet

Eating healthy is a good idea, but sometimes the dietary restrictions imposed by wearing braces are simply unacceptable. Many people feel that limiting the foods they get to eat is the single worst part of having braces. Since anything too hard, too chewy, or too sticky is off limits, it can seem to ruin many otherwise special celebrations. Fortunately, with Invisalign that’s no longer a problem. You don’t eat while wearing the trays; you quickly remove the trays for the few minutes while you’re eating, and then eat whatever you want!

Beautifully Straightened Teeth

When it comes to Invisalign braces, the results speak for themselves. The Invisalign system leads to straight teeth and a beautiful smile. And while other braces may be able to do the trick, none of them can do it with the comfort Invisalign offers.
