Invisalign Makes it Easy to Get Straight Teeth at Any Age

Everyone deserves a beautiful smile, but no one deserves to endure the pain and awkwardness that come with braces. Thankfully, Invisalign clear aligners do away with most of the troubles associated with braces. 

Dr. Peter Gambertoglio at Spring Dentists in Spring, Texas, offers Invisalign because they’re faster, less painful, and significantly more aesthetically appealing than metal braces. From Dr. Gambertoglio, here are the top five benefits of Invisalign teeth straighteners over traditional metal braces. 

1. Invisalign aligners are easily removable for eating and drinking

Few things are worse than getting food stuck in your braces — except for not being able to eat food you want because you’re afraid that it’ll get stuck in your braces. Invisalign effectively erases those typical woes because you can remove your aligners before eating. So, instead of being limited (or grossed out) by your food options, you can eat as you normally would. Just be sure to brush before putting your aligners back on!

2. Invisalign aligners aren’t clunky and awkward 

Ask anyone who had traditional braces about how difficult it was to smile and eat — not to mention whistle, sing, or even speak. Metal braces protrude relatively far from your teeth, which, for many people, affects the way your lips move. Invisalign clear aligners, on the other hand, fit similar to the way a clear retainer fits after braces. An Invisalign set fits with minimal space between your teeth and the aligners, reducing the likelihood that your lips are affected. 

3. Invisalign aligners are clear 

On top of not affecting the way your mouth moves — a huge advantage itself — Invisalign aligners are clear, so they’re far more aesthetically pleasing than traditional braces. No, you won’t get to pick fun rubber band colors with Invisalign, but that’s because you won’t need rubber bands at all. Throughout your Invisalign treatment, most people won’t even notice you have aligners on (unless they’re up close and personal). 

4. Invisalign aligners may work faster 

How long you wear your aligners comes down to your individual needs, but Invisalign tends to be faster than braces. On average, patients with braces are in treatment for two to four years, while wearing braces 24/7. Invisalign treatments, however, take an average of 22 to 24 months, up to 50 percent faster than traditional braces. Plus, you wear them 20 to 24 hours each day (you don’t wear them when you eat or clean your teeth). 

5. Invisalign aligners make brushing and flossing easy

In the same way that you can take your Invisalign aligners out to eat, you can take them out to brush and floss. This may be the biggest advantage that Invisalign has over traditional braces, as brushing thoroughly with braces is difficult, and flossing is nearly impossible. With Invisalign, just pop them out, brush and floss as usual, and voila — sparkling clean teeth.
