What Makes Invisalign Better Than Braces?


Invisalign is Virtually Invisible

The most common reason we see adults choose not to get braces is because of how plain in sight they are. It is virtually impossible to smile, talk, and open your mouth without others seeing the tracks of braces across your teeth. This causes many to feel insecure and in some cases even childish. The usual style of braces is commonly seen on younger children and pre-teens, as that is now the new standard of when people choose to get braces. However, straight teeth should not be just for the up and coming generation. Straight teeth are something you deserve as an adult too. The clear solution for this is Invisalign. Invisalign is as effective as braces but is hidden to the eye. People will not be able to tell that you have Invisalign on your teeth when just looking at you. This means you can go about your day to day life without feeling the stares of others, bringing about those feelings of self-consciousness.


Flexibility and Normalcy

One of the most often heard complaints we hear about braces is that they make eating certain things a real pain. This is in part due to certain foods getting stuck in the braces and certain foods just plain hard to eat. With Invisalign, your daily meals do not need to feel more complicated, or embarrassing. You can simply take off your braces, eat, then put them back on. This is one of the beauties of Invisalign. While you do need to wear them for at least 20, 22 hours a day, you can take a few breaks when necessary. This flexibility is also convenient when it’s time to brush your teeth. Brushing around braces is difficult and becomes quite a lengthy process. Food gets stuck in the braces and germs are more likely to build up. With Invisalign, you can protect this from happening to you by simply removing the braces when you need to.


Comfort is Key

Braces can be physically uncomfortable in the mouth. This does not come as a huge surprise to many but assuming how uncomfortable they are and feeling the pain is a world of a difference. This source of pain comes from the make-up of braces; usually a track of metal with brackets that runs across your teeth with occasional rubber bands and wires. Typical braces are no joke. This kind of intense pressure in the mouth is quickly averted when you go with Invisalign as your teeth straightening option. The Invisalign form of braces is a smooth, custom fit aligner that applies pressure without any of the extra hardware. Not only will your mouth feel generally fine but you will save a whole lot of pain from dealing with the rubber bands snapping and pulling at your teeth.
