Most people are not thrilled when they find out that they have to get braces. However, it will be a lot easier to cope with getting braces if one has Invisalign. Below are some of the ways that people can benefit from getting clear braces:
1. Builds Self-confidence
Many people do not like the way that traditional metal braces look. They may feel self-conscious while they are wearing traditional braces. Additionally, if food gets caught in the braces, then it will be very noticeable. One of the many great things about clear braces is that they are not noticeable by other people.
2. Can Be Removed
The clear aligners can be removed. Removing your aligners will make it easier for you to clean your teeth. People who wear traditional braces are at a greater risk for tooth decay because the braces make it harder for them to clean their teeth. Not only can the clear aligners be removed, but it is also comfortable to wear them.
3. Reduces Time in Braces
There has been evidence to suggest that clear aligners may be able to straighten teeth faster than the metal braces. In fact, people who wear the clear aligners may be able to straighten their teeth in as little as 1.5 years. Keep in mind that the treatment time can vary from person to person. The problem that is being treated is one of the factors that affect how long the treatment will last.
4. Improved Safety
The wire from traditional braces can protrude and scratch the gums and insides of the mouth. They also put a lot of force on the teeth and can damage them. However, you will not have to worry about these problems if you wear invisalign.
5. No Food Restrictions
People who have metal braces will need to avoid eating certain foods. Popcorn, hard candy and chewing gum are examples of things that people cannot eat if they are wearing traditional metal braces. If you are wearing invisalign, then you will not have to worry about adhering to any food restrictions. Because the clear aligners can be removed while you are eating, you can prevent them from getting damaged.
