A significant number of adults would argue the use of Invisalign aligners is far more suited to their lifestyle than traditional metal-wire fixtures, but what are the advantages of Invisalign treatment?
One of the primary reasons people prefer Invisalign is due to the pain and discomfort that is associated with the use of fixed braces, as well as the irritation and inflammation inflicted on the gums.
In addition, elastic bands and tightening forces used with metal-wire braces can also cause high levels of discomfort, but the majority of patients who try Invisalign claim they are extremely comfortable to wear.
Furthermore, the nature of the removable aligners means this course of action is much more convenient for individuals with a hectic lifestyle, due to the fact they can be removed when eating.
The use of invisible braces also means maintaining an effective oral hygiene routine is much simpler – particularly flossing – which can be carried out following the removal of the Invisalign aligners.
People who have had traditional aligners fitted often neglect their teeth and gums due to the difficulty they experience when conducting simple tasks including brushing and cleaning. For this reason, some Fixed braces patients end up with bad breath, gum disease and tooth decay.
The discreet nature of Invisalign ensures they are virtually invisible to anyone, which means very few people will notice the treatment is being carried out – something that is perfect for adults who carry out public speaking on a regular basis.
In addition, the invisible nature of the procedure means most patients will not experience any disruption to their lifestyle and has encouraged millions of people to select this technique to transform their smile.
