When it comes to straightening crooked and misaligned teeth, traditional braces have long been the treatment of choice. However, many patients are unimpressed with the look and feel of traditional braces, feeling put off by the uncomfortable metal brackets and wires that the system utilizes. Instead, these patients are coming to our Kingston, PA office to inquire about Invisalign, a newer, more advanced system for straightening teeth.
Reasons to Demand Invisalign for Your Teeth Straightening Needs
When it comes to why you should choose Invisalign for your teeth straightening treatment over traditional braces, we can give you many great reasons:
1. Remove the Need for Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional braces have gained a reputation for being bulky, unattractive, and uncomfortable. This is all because they are made from a hard, sharp metal. Invisalign, on the other hand, is made from a smooth, clear plastic that your friends will not even be able to notice.
2. Participate in Activities You Love
The metal wires and brackets of traditional braces can make it difficult to play sports and can even get in the way of playing some musical instruments. With Invisalign, you will remove your aligners for the duration of your activity, reinserting them when done.
3. Reduce Risk of Tooth Decay
With traditional braces, it can be hard to keep your teeth clean. Metal wires and brackets can make it hard to properly brush and floss, which can increase your risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease. With Invisalign, you will remove your aligners to brush and floss, making it easy to keep your teeth clean and healthy.
4. Increase Self-Confidence
Patients with crooked and misaligned teeth often feel less confidence in themselves. While traditional braces will correct these issues, the garish metal wires and brackets hardly do much to improve self-confidence. With Invisalign, you will be able to straighten your teeth without anyone noticing the treatment in place. Not only will you feel improved self-confidence because your treatment is invisible, but your confidence will only continue to raise as your teeth move into their proper positions.
5. Healthier Teeth and Gums
Traditional braces make it easy for food and bacteria to get trapped between your treatment and your teeth and gums. This results in an increased risk for gum disease and other oral health problems. With Invisalign, you are able to remove your aligners for easy brushing and flossing, greatly decreasing your chances of developing these problems.
6. No Dietary Restrictions
When it comes to eating with traditional braces, you have to give up foods that are hard or chewy, as they can damage your treatment. With Invisalign, you will remove your trays before enjoying your meals. This means that you will be free to enjoy your favorite foods without having to worry about your treatment getting in the way.
