These 12 million patients chose Invisalign over braces as their preferred way of improving their smile. Perhaps they chose Invisalign because of the aesthetically appealing aspects. Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible so hardly anyone notices that you’re straightening your teeth. Perhaps they chose Invisalign because the aligners are removable which allows for adequate oral hygiene. Or perhaps they chose Invisalign for a combination of these reasons.
One of the exciting benefits of choosing Invisalign over traditional braces is the ability to watch a virtual treatment plan that shows the predicted series of movements your teeth will go through during the course of the treatment. The digital software will show you how your teeth should look at the end of the treatment, so you’ll have a clear idea how your smile will be improved.
The 12 million Invisalign patients made a commitment to wearing their aligners for at least 22 hours a day, which is an important element to Invisalign treatment. The aligners should only be removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
Straightening teeth can often cause elements of pain to the patient, regardless of whether they choose the Invisalign system or traditional metal braces. After all, straightening teeth involves the shifting of teeth to a different position. However, Invisalign aligners have another distinct advantage over braces in that they’re made from comfortable plastic that feels smooth against lips and gums. Braces can sometimes irritate the insides of the mouth which can cause discomfort to the patient.
