Why Are Patients Choosing Invisalign Over Traditional Metal Braces?
When your smile is not as perfect as you wish it could be due to misalignment issues, including an overbite, underbite, or crossbite, you will likely seek an orthodontic solution to correct it. Traditional orthodontics, such as metal braces, would have been your only choice for many years. But now, treatments like Invisalign teeth aligners exist, which are discreet, produce excellent results and are without the restrictions that come with braces. When you visit Dr. Thelam Nguyen at Tansley Woods Dentistry in Burlington, Ontario, you can learn why patients worldwide choose Invisalign over traditional metal braces.
No Dietary Limitations
When you choose metal braces, your orthodontist will provide you with a list of foods you will be asked to avoid eating. Sticky and hard-to-chew foods will likely make the list, so if you enjoy chewy caramel, you will have to say goodbye to that for the duration of your treatment. However, when you choose Invisalign clear aligners, you will not need to worry about such restrictions. When eating, you will simply need to remove your aligners, and when you’re done, pop them back on and carry on with your day. All your favourite foods can remain in your life!
There is no way you are ever going to hide metal braces. But, when you choose Invisalign, you are choosing a completely discreet treatment that many will not be able to see even when standing close to you. Thanks to the clear, comfortable aligners made of dental-grade plastic, you can discreetly get the treatment you need.
Easy To Clean
Cleaning your braces can be difficult. Food particles can get stuck in the brackets or behind wires, making it quite burdensome to completely clean your teeth and braces. Once your braces are removed, what can often result is staining due to the food that was left behind and the bacteria that had collected. Cleaning your Invisalign clear aligners is very easy, and because you can easily remove them when brushing and flossing, cleaning your teeth is much easier.
