Do you want a straighter smile? How about a straighter smile without the hassles of traditional braces? If you answered yes to our two questions, you’re in luck. Invisalign clear aligners are the perfect orthodontic treatment to help you reach your goals in a stress-free way!
Explore the benefits that come with Invisalign treatment before you schedule a consultation at Advanced Dentistry of Butler.
Eat Anything You Want
One of the most appealing benefits for most patients is the ability to eat whatever you want during Invisalign treatment. Since you can remove the clear aligners from your mouth for eating, there’s literally nothing you can’t eat during your treatment. Simply pop out your aligners and enjoy popcorn, candy, hard bread, peanuts, and anything else you might want. Unlike traditional braces, there are no food limitations with Invisalign.
Enjoy a Discreet Treatment
Even though you’re wearing masks when you’re out in public now, you might not want people to know you’re going through orthodontic treatment when you’re taking selfies or video chatting with your loved ones or colleagues. Invisalign makes it easy to keep your treatment discreet between you and your dentist. The clear aligners are nearly invisible and most people won’t be able to tell you’re wearing braces.
Experience Less Discomfort Than With Metal Braces
Although no orthodontic treatment comes without some discomfort, Invisalign comes with less discomfort than the leading orthodontic treatment. With metal braces, you can easily scratch and cut your cheeks, tongue, or lips on your brackets. With Invisalign however, the aligners are made with a smooth plastic that won’t cause you any discomfort or scratches on your skin.
It’s also less uncomfortable as your teeth shift through your mouth. Instead of large movements every six weeks, you switch Invisalign aligners about every two weeks for small movement increments. This results in less pain and discomfort throughout your treatment.
Easy to Clean
Maneuvering between brackets and wires is incredibly challenging and makes keeping your mouth clean and healthy difficult. With Invisalign, however, keeping your teeth and aligners clean is a breeze! Simply remove your aligners and brush and floss your teeth just like you normally would. Then, gently brush your aligners with special Invisalign cleaner or with anti-bacterial soap. Rinse thoroughly and then pop them back in! Between meals, we recommend brushing your teeth and rinsing your aligners. You really only need to brush and clean your aligners at night and in the morning.
Fewer Office Visits
With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about accidentally breaking a bracket or dealing with a poking wire. There are hardly any dental emergencies that might pop up. As a result, you will have fewer office visits. You will only need to visit our office about every six weeks for a quick check-up to ensure your progress is moving along at the right pace.
Since Invisalign aligners are removable, they’re super convenient. You can travel without worrying if you will run into a dental emergency. You can even remove them for a brief time to take holiday photos. The ability to remove your braces when you need to is incredibly convenient for life.
Works Fast and Effectively
Most patients are good candidates for Invisalign. The ones who aren’t good candidates usually have severe bite problems. But for those who are good candidates, Invisalign works fast and effectively. You can achieve similar results as you would with traditional braces and in some cases much sooner. Since you change Invisalign aligners every two weeks, it can help your treatment progress much faster. That’s why most treatments only take as little as six months up to two years to complete.
