You may have heard about all the exciting advancements in modern dentistry that make it easier than ever for folks to transform their crooked, crowded, teeth into something really special.

In our Hoover, AL dentist’s office, we are big believers in Invisalign clear braces. As such, in today’s post, we will give you seven good reasons why Invisalign is a better orthodontic treatment for adults than conventional metal braces.

Keep reading and then be sure to follow up with our team to arrange for your adult orthodontics consultation with Dr. Perrigo.

Reason #1: Plastic that is custom-molded for use in your unique mouth is safer and much more comfortable than harsh metal brackets and wires.

As we all know, with regular old braces, metal brackets are affixed to the front of your teeth. Then metal wires are connected to those brackets. This can be dangerous and uncomfortable. Even if you are safe and have no accidents, you can still catch the inside of your lips and cheeks on the metal. This can cut you and leave scars in your mouth. Since Invisalign uses clear aligners made from plastic, there’s nothing to catch on. And the gear fits snugly.

Reason #2: Invisalign clear aligners look much better on your teeth.

Since Invisalign is made from clear plastic, your peers will not see that you’re wearing anything unless they get up real close. That’s why Invisalign is often referred to as “invisible braces.” This will make it easier to hang onto your self-confidence and your dignity along the way.

Reason #3: The transformation happens faster.

Traditional metal braces can take anywhere from two to three years before they are done with the task at hand. That means long years of dealing with metal brackets, wires, and the discomfort both bring. By contrast, for many people, Invisalign fixes crooked smiles in an average of 12 months.

Reason #4: Fewer visits to our Hoover, AL dentist’s office.

For conventional braces to do their job, the wires connecting the brackets need to be tightened every couple of weeks. Miss an in-office adjustment, and you’ll be adding weeks to your total time.

When you go with Invisalign, however, you’ll switch your aligners out at home every two weeks or so to keep things moving forward.

Reason #5: Invisalign clear aligners allow you to eat whatever you want, whenever you want.

Since they are removable, Invisalign aligners can be taken out whenever you want (as long as you wear them 20+ hours each day). When it’s time to eat, you simply remove them. This means you can eat all of the foods you did before starting orthodontic treatment. When you’re done eating, give your teeth a quick brushing and put the aligner back in. Try doing that with braces!

Reason #6: No special tools are required for cleaning.

Metal braces have another big problem when it comes to food, it’s easy to get stuff stuck in them. All of the food you chew when wearing braces gets smashed up against those brackets. Bits of food can easily get trapped by the metal. Since the brackets are on your teeth, that usually means the food is stuck right up against your enamel. You’ll have to clean your braces frequently (usually with a special tiny brush) to avoid cavities. You won’t have to worry about that with Invisalign. Just keep brushing, flossing, and rinsing as usual.

Reason #7: Your crooked, crowded, or gapped smile will end up looking straight and beautiful.

We have seen the amazing results of Invisalign time and time again. At the end of the day, that is what it is all about.
