Why Choose Invisalign Over Braces

Posted: March 19, 2020

Many adults and teens are hesitant to straighten their teeth because they don’t want to endure the pain, inconvenience, and embarrassment of metal braces.

Luckily, Invisalign offers a clear, comfortable, and removable alternative, with amazing results.

So, why choose Invisalign over braces?

Continue reading for seven reasons why Invisalign is better than braces.

Why Choose Invisalign Over Braces

1. Virtually Invisible

Because Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible, they provide teens and adults a discreet and aesthetically-pleasing way to straighten their teeth.

2. Comfort

If you’re wondering – Why choose Invisalign over braces? – look no further than Invisalign’s customized fit. The smooth aligners are made of BPA-free plastic and avoid irritation, cuts, and sores that are common with traditional metal braces. 

3. Convenience

Invisalign requires fewer dental appointments than braces. Patients change their Invisalign trays every 1-2 weeks and see their orthodontist every 6 weeks for follow-up care.

4. No Foods Are Off Limits

With metal braces, you must avoid hard, sticky, or chewy foods that can get caught in braces or damage the brackets or arch wire. 

Because Invisalign is removable, patients can continue to eat all of their favorite foods without worrying about any repercussions.

5. Easier to Brush and Floss

Brackets and wires often make it difficult to brush and floss, which can adversely affect oral health.

This is not a problem with Invisalign, and you can take aligners out prior to brushing and flossing.

6. Removable

Anyone questioning why choose Invisalign over braces, will be pleased to learn that Invisalign aligners are removable. This provides a freedom and convenience that traditional braces do not.

7. Doesn’t Interfere with Daily Activities

Whether you play a musical instrument or participate in sports, Invisalign won’t interfere with your daily routine. The same cannot be said about braces, which make it difficult to comfortably and safely engage in these activities.
