Misaligned or crooked teeth are not only unappealing but also difficult to clean. Teeth that are difficult to clean could cause periodontal diseases or increase the risk of tooth loss and bone damage. Here are the benefits of using Invisalign as opposed to traditional braces;
Metal braces may cause the mouth to be unattractive since they have noticeable unsightly metal as compared to Invisalign that are barely noticeable which makes them better than the metal braces.
Once a dentist has attached the metal braces, they always stay in place until a professional removes them, unlike the Invisalign where an individual can briefly take them out especially when flossing, brushing, eating, or drinking.
Invisalign reduces damage to gums and teeth. The mouth or gums of an individual may be scratched or punctured by the protruding wire bits in the metal braces. Invisalign braces are usually smooth and comfortable. Clear braces use less pressure in straightening teeth and reduce damage caused by metal braces.
The clear braces straighten teeth much faster. The Invisalign treatment process may take up to one and half years as compared to traditional braces treatment process which could take up to five years.
Since clear braces treatment plan is fully computerized, the patient knows what to expect and the time the treatment will take. Metal braces may not give a clear idea of what to expect.
