Invisalign clear aligners are made of almost invisible polyurethane plastic. Instead of being cemented to the teeth like metal or clear braces, clear aligners are removable in case you want to eat, brush or floss. This benefit can also be a disadvantage because you’ll now need to resist the temptation to take your aligners out for longer than the recommended time. Here are some other reasons why clear aligners like the Invisalign system may be a good option for you:
Better Oral Hygiene
With a removable orthodontic appliance, you can now clean your teeth as usual, with no interference from the appliance. This makes cleaning and maintaining the teeth much easier than with traditional braces
A Subtle Look
If you feel that metal braces don’t suit your self-image, removable clear aligner trays will definitely fit your needs. It is very difficult to tell that someone with clear aligners is even wearing them!
More Dietary Varieties
In protecting metal wires and braces, certain dietary adjustments are required. With clear aligners, you can still bite into an apple and have your steak!
Ease of Use
Clear aligners are soft, flexible material and will not irritate the soft tissues of the mouth like metal wires and braces sometimes do.
Make a fashion statement with the colours you choose for your braces! Why not coordinate your wardrobe, express yourself with bright hues to celebrate holidays, or be a true fan and support your favorite team? These colours are ties that hold the wires in place and can be changed. You will have the opportunity to change the colours every month you visit the orthodontist! Even adults enjoy choosing different colours whenever they need a wire change.
