Tooth misalignment can result in discomfort, reduced functionality, or just dissatisfaction with your smile’s appearance.In the past, traditional metal braces were the go-to option for fixing alignment issues, but Invisalign clear aligners now provide patients with a much more pleasant treatment experience while producing the same great results.
Why You Should Choose Invisalign Over Braces
Invisalign can be used to correct a long list of teeth problems such as crowding, overbites, underbites, spacing, and general appearance.
Here’s why our expert Marietta dental team recommends the clear aligners over braces:
It’s a comfortable alternative.
Traditional braces have wires that can poke your mouth, making for a painful phenomenon. Invisalign trays, however, are custom-made for your mouth. A new set of aligners is made around every two weeks to accommodate for your moving teeth, so the trays fit comfortably throughout your teeth-straightening journey. Once adjusting to the feeling of Invisalign aligners, many patients don’t even notice them!
It’s more convenient.
The removable aligners allow for easy maintenance so you can continue your regular oral health routine without having to adjust for any bulky hardware. Metal braces require you to avoid certain foods, but the Invisalign tray removability also means you can maintain your current diet without having to cut out any of your favorite snacks.
For best results, we recommend you wear the trays for 22 hours a day and only remove them to eat and clean your teeth.
It’s subtle and discrete.
Crooked teeth are embarrassing, but clunky metal braces can make you want to hide your smile throughout treatment. No one likes bringing more attention to a problem when correcting it, and with Invisalign, you don’t have to. The clear aligners are barely noticeable so you can straighten your teeth without the risk of feeling self-conscious about your appearance during the process.
