If you are considering getting a dental treatment to straighten your teeth, you are probably trying to decide between Invisalign and traditional metal braces. Roslyn Invisalign is a set of smooth plastic invisible aligners or removable braces used to straighten teeth. The procedure is almost undetectable and is made just for your mouth.
Here are the benefits of Invisalign;
1. You can eat whatever you want
There is a vast list of foods that are off-limits when wearing conventional metal braces. Some of these foods include chewing gum, chewy sweets, caramel, corn on the cob, and popcorn are prohibited.
You won’t ever have to stress memorizing a list of restricted foods if you use Invisalign. Simply remove your aligner trays before eating and snacking, consume anything you like, wash your aligners (or at the absolute least, rinse them with water), and then replace your aligners.
2. You can remove your aligners
There is no need to remove Invisalign aligners because they are almost invisible. But occasionally, some patients have significant occasions like weddings, speeches at conferences, or even first dates that they would want to attend without putting their aligners. Removing your aligners for a few hours is not an issue with Invisalign.
Your treatment will go as planned as long as you wear your aligners for at least 20 hours daily. When calculating this amount, don’t forget to account for the time spent eating and cleaning your teeth.
3. Oral hygiene is easier
When traditional metal braces are removed, many patients face an unwanted surprise: discoloration on their teeth. Or, even worse, they can have gum disease or gingivitis, a condition that precedes cavities. This is because maintaining proper dental hygiene is quite challenging when wearing metal braces.
Oral hygiene with Invisalign is as easy as taking off your plastic aligners and brushing and flossing as usual, just like you did before starting your treatment. To clean your aligners, you can use a soft-bristled toothbrush or a cleaning solution explicitly created for Invisalign aligners.
4. Invisalign is comfortable
Many individuals go for Invisalign as adults because their teeth progressively moved out of alignment after wearing metal braces as kids or adolescents. Patients undergoing orthodontic treatment with both options are astounded by how much more pleasant Invisalign is than conventional metal braces.
In contrast to unsightly metal braces, the aligners are made of smooth plastic that fits tightly against the teeth. You will change your aligners at home every two weeks rather than having wires prick your cheeks and soft tissue or undergoing painful wire tightening every four weeks.
5. You will never have orthodontic emergencies
Orthodontic emergencies are one of the numerous drawbacks of conventional braces. Even yet, most patients encounter one or two broken brackets at some time throughout their orthodontic treatment. You may reduce the risk by adhering to your orthodontist’s advice about which foods to avoid. Finding the time to get it replaced is a hassle, but waiting until your next visit to get it replaced might extend the length of your orthodontic treatment.
You don’t have to worry about the Invisalign aligners breaking since they are sturdy. That eliminates any last-minute trips to our office.
