When it comes to teeth straightening, conventional braces aren’t your only option. Invisible braces are a modern alternative that can help to resolve a number of problems including spacing issues, crowding of teeth, and bite imperfections. As well as producing fantastic results, invisible braces free you from the stigma associated with wired braces helping to boost your self-confidence while straightening your teeth. In this blog, we’ll look at some of the main reasons to opt for invisible braces.
Invisible braces obviously provide a comfortable experience relative to conventional metal braces. While metal braces have to be tightened by a professional, invisible braces can be changed periodically by yourself. Additionally, invisible braces don’t have sharp edges to they are much more comfortable to wear.
Invisible braces are so named because they are often unnoticeable making them a great choice for adults and children alike. Traditional metal braces can make us self-conscious and stop us from smiling. Invisible braces such as those by Invisalign benefit by being made of high-quality clear plastic making them practically invisible. It’s a discreet way of straightening your teeth.
Easy to clean
Another amazing benefit of invisible braces is that they are easy to clean. When you wear metal braces, it is possible for your food to get stuck in areas that are hard to reach which can then result in poor oral hygiene. With Invisalign braces you can simply remove them to brush and floss your teeth as normal and also give your braces a clean before popping them back in your mouth.
Fewer dentist appointments
With metal braces, frequent visits to your orthodontist are required to tighten or maintain the metal braces. However, the number of appointments required for invisible braces are way less. Orthodontists will recommend visiting them every 4 to 8 weeks to analyse the progress of the treatment.
No diet restrictions
Another advantage that you will love is that you won’t have to avoid eating certain foods for fear of damaging your braces. This means that there is no need to cut your favourite foods from your diet and the freedom to eat whatever you want knowing that you won’t damage your braces, of course we’d recommend that you stick to a healthy and balanced diet.
Common dental problems such as crooked teeth can affect our confidence and lead us to avoid social contact where possible. Metal braces will fix your crooked teeth but won’t do anything to improve your self-confidence. This is where invisible braces really come into their own. Not only will they help to fix crooked teeth, but they will do this without anyone noticing that you are wearing them.
