Did you live in the era when braces meant wearing wire and brackets on the teeth? Did you ever find yourself wearing them? If so, you probably automatically understand one of the main advantages of Invisalign, and that is that the treatment involves none of the unsightly and uncomfortable wires and brackets. Yet, the team here at Boss Dental Care in Corpus Christi, TX encourages all patients to consider the other, less obvious advantages of Invisalign.
As your trusted dentist in Corpus Christi, we might recommend that you use Invisalign for a variety of issues. They are an ideal solution for those with crooked or misaligned smiles or problematic bites (this can mean you have an over or under bite or even a crossbite). They are a form of cosmetic dentistry as well as orthodontics, but they are not actually “clear braces”. Instead, they are smooth and nearly invisible trays that slide snugly over your teeth, allowing you to enjoy straightening without anyone even knowing you are using the aligners.
So, with that simple explanation, it is likely that you will be able to more readily recognize the many different advantages of Invisalign. Let’s consider them:
They are smooth and comfortable
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign will not irritate the soft tissue of the mouth or cause any pain or discomfort in the ways that traditional braces so commonly manage to do.
They allow easy oral hygiene
Brushing and flossing are key parts of oral care, and one of the greatest advantages of Invisalign is that they pop off whenever you eat, drink anything other than water or need to brush and floss the teeth. Trying to get the teeth clean and then floss to remove debris when wearing wire braces is incredibly difficult and not often successful.
They address most of the same issues
Because Invisalign is often seen as a cosmetic dentistry solution there has been talk that they don’t work the same as braces. This is untrue and you can have most of the same issues treated with the aligners and in roughly the same amount of time.
They allow you to retain self-esteem
Whether you are a teen or adult in need of realignment of the teeth, you may be very self-conscious about braces. With Invisalign, you get to eat, talk, look and smile like always and no one will ever know you are having your teeth corrected.
