3 Crucial Reasons to Choose Invisalign® Braces Over Traditional Braces

You need braces. You have crooked teeth. You want a straighter smile but want to avoid bulky metal wires stretching across your teeth. With our Invisalign® braces, you no longer worry about anyone noticing your braces. Here are 3 reasons Invisalign® is the clear choice!

1. Foodie Worries Go Away

Are you a foodie? Do you have to get braces? Are you worried about eating out and getting food stuck between the wires on your teeth? Forget traditional braces. Choose Invisalign®, clear aligners to keep you smiling and enjoy your dinner out.

Traditional metal braces don’t give you the flexibility of removing them before that special dinner date. Avoid the anxiety of excusing yourself every second to pick away food from your teeth after each course. You can remove your custom clear retainers before you eat. A quick brush and rinse after dessert then pop your aligners back on your teeth. Your smile will radiate across the table knowing the broccoli is in your stomach instead of on your wire brackets.

Go ahead! You can eat whatever you want with Invisalign® braces. No more avoiding popcorn like with regular braces. Say goodbye to tracks and bands, unless of course, you are listening to a new track from your favourite Band.

2. Comfort Level Increases with Invisalign® braces

Compared to metal braces, Invisalign® is more comfortable. No Metal brackets to scrape your tongue and cheeks against. Each set of clear retainers gets created from a 3D imaging scan to custom fit your teeth. About every 1-2 weeks you will use a new retainer.
The gentle force applied through the snug fit moves your teeth. After your treatment is complete, run your tongue over your teeth. There are no bumps because your clear aligner is a single removable piece. Unlike traditional braces with many components, Invisalign® leaves nothing behind but a straight beautiful smile.

Invisalign® custom clear retainers can treat a variety of issues from crowded teeth and overbite to gap teeth and underbite. For more complex tooth alignments, the SmartForce® attachment assists to gently move teeth with the help of mini tooth coloured handles. A blue compliance indicator gets incorporated to make sure your aligners are being worn for the correct amount of time. Invisalign® braces give you a comfortable fit and relaxation knowing your teeth are moving in the right direction.

3. A Clean Track Record

Invisalign® is easier to clean than traditional braces. Since there are no wires and brackets, you’ll be cleaning your teeth without the use of special tools. You simply pop out your aligner, brush your teeth, clean the retainer and pop it back in. Something this easy to clean helps you maintain your oral health. Traditional braces can harbour food particles in the crevices of the brackets but Invisalign® is clear, so bacterial causing remnants to have nowhere to hide; just in case you missed a spot when brushing.

Enjoy the benefits of Invisalign®. Your stomach, mouth, and health will thank you and guess what? You will have a straight, beautiful smile up to 50% faster than with regular braces! Over 20 years and counting, Invisalign® technology has helped millions of mouths.
