Are Invisible Braces Right For You?

Are Invisible Braces Right For You?

January 3, 2023

A beautiful and pleasing smile can elevate your personality and improve oral health. However, misaligned and crooked teeth can ruin your smile and potentially cause other dental issues in the future.

Dentists have used braces for a long time to push the misaligned teeth back to their proper position to create that perfect smile. While conventional braces work, they are highly inconvenient and can make the user self-conscious.

Invisible braces like the Invisalign® system are a great solution to this problem. The Invisalign trays are transparent and removable, making them very comfortable and convenient.

What Benefits Do Invisible Braces Offer Over Metal Braces?

Many people choose invisible braces over conventional ones due to their many advantages.

Some of the reasons for selecting invisible braces include the following:

  • Comfort: Invisible braces are very comfortable to wear, and there are no metal wires that can cut your inner cheeks and lips while eating or chewing. Invisible aligners are smooth and don’t have any sharp edges making them less likely to cause damage to the soft tissues.

  • Attractive looking: Invisible aligners like Invisalign are transparent, making them less conspicuous and more beautiful than traditional metal braces.

  • No maintenance: Compared to metal braces, invisible aligners are very easy to maintain. You can take them out while eating or brushing your teeth as well. As metal braces are not removable, cleaning them can be very difficult.

  • Better dental health: Invisalign braces reduce cuts and scrapes to your mouth while using metal wire braces. As you can clean your teeth better with the Invisalign system, there is also a decreased possibility of dental caries and infections.

Who Can Opt For Invisible Braces?

Teens over 13 and adults with minor dental alignment issues are ideal candidates for invisible braces. You will also need to remember that for best results, you must wear them for at least 20 hours daily. You might be a good candidate for invisible braces if you meet these requirements.
