5 Benefits of Using Invisalign® to Improve Your Smile | Invisalign 89117

July 17, 2018

If you're unhappy with your teeth and you're trying to decide if you should go with Invisalign® or braces. Today, we're going to highlight the benefits of using invisalign® so you can make a decision.

Thinking about Invisalign 89117 to improve your smile? Or maybe you're trying to choose between Invisalign® or braces? Many people come to our Las Vegas office with questions about Invisalign®. So today, we're going to spill the beans by highlighting the five biggest benefits of using Invisalign so you can decide if it's for you.

1. Invisalign® is More Aesthetically Attractive

The most unique advantage is that Invisalign® aligners are clear, unlike traditional metal braces placed directly on the front of your teeth. You can smile with complete confidence, knowing your teeth are being aligned. This is especially important for adults who don't want their personal or professional lives affected by braces. Another advantage is keeping your ability to smile naturally. Smiling with traditional braces is often difficult due to their more bulky nature. And some people are even embarrassed to smile in public or when taking pictures because of their metal brackets. This isn't an issue with Invisalign®, because you can simply remove your aligners at any time when the need arrives. That way you're not missing out on important moments due to your teeth alignment.

2. Quicker Path to a Better Smile

One of the drawbacks of traditional braces is they typically take several years to align your teeth. That's not the case with Invisalign, which usually require one year for treatment. Of course, everyone is different so results may vary, but generally speaking, the average time to align your teeth is less with Invisalign 89117 than it is for braces. CAUTION: You may have heard about DIY braces. Don't be tempted. The problems are too numerous and they can ruin your smile.

3. Better Hygiene and Oral Health

Metal braces make it very difficult to take care of your teeth. Not to mention, it's also frustrating trying to clean food that gets stuck in your braces. For this reason, most orthodontists place food restrictions on their patients. With Invisalign®, taking care of your teeth is much easier. When it's time to clean, you just take off your aligners, and brush and floss as you normally would. And you can eat what you want, as long as you remove the aligners beforehand. There are no food restrictions. Correcting your teeth alignment is also beneficial in preventing future dental issues like overcrowding or too much space between your teeth. In fact, Invisalign® can help prevent gum disease. Traditional braces require special instruments to help get the food that gets stuck in the metal wires. Many people find it almost impossible to reach everything. Not so with Invisalign®. Again, you just remove the aligners for unobstructed access to clean your teeth easily.

4. Improved Self Esteem

Evidence has shown, smiling makes you happier. And when you are happy with your teeth, you flash your radiant smile without hesitation, leading to improved ego and self-esteem. This is one of the biggest reasons why people choose Invisalign®. As your smile improves, you'll naturally want to smile more. With clear aligners, there will be nothing holding you back from flashing your pearly whites.

5. Correct Your Bite and Associated Issues

One understated advantage of Invisalign® is it corrects your bite. For example, the most common issue is with overbites, which is when your upper teeth extend beyond your lower teeth. Overbites can result in gum irritation, extra wear on your lower teeth and jaw pain. Correcting your bite greatly diminishes the likelihood you'll have those issues while improving the appearance of your smile.

Pro Tip: Use in Conjunction with Teeth Whitening Treatment

If you really want to magnify your smile, add teeth whitening to your regimen. As your teeth alignment improves with Invisalign 89117, your teeth will get several shades whiter. As your teeth are obstructed with traditional braces, teeth whitening is only an option for those with Invisalign® or who don't wear braces. Teeth whitening is a quick and easy way to brighten your smile during the alignment process. Do it and thank yourself later.

The Bottom Line:

There's a lot to consider when your choosing between Invisalign® and traditional braces. The benefits of Invisalign® are significant, but every choice is an individual one. If you'd like more information, or if you'd like a free consultation to answer all your questions, contact us.
