There are a number of benefits of using Invisalign over the use of traditional braces to correct misaligned teeth. Traditional metal braces can make it quite difficult to brush your teeth, as your toothbrush will not be able to clean easily around the wire and the brackets making up the system.
Invisalign aligner trays can be removed so that patients will be able to easily brush and floss their teeth. The aligner trays can also be removed during mealtime, which will make it much easier for patients to enjoy a varied and healthy diet. There are no foot restrictions with Invisalign aligner trays, but sweet corn, peanut butter, and other crunchy items may be on the restriction list with traditional braces.
Traditional braces can lead to uncomfortable cuts and injuries on the lips and on the inside of the cheeks. Invisalign clear aligner trays offer a smooth surface that will ensure that patients don’t have to experience any discomfort.
Patients who use Invisalign are able to take part in sports and other outdoor activities without worry. This is in contrast to patients who have traditional braces that could cause damage to the mouth of the patient if they fall or otherwise sustain a blow to the face.
An added benefit of the Invisalign aligners is that they can help to provide a means of protection to the teeth that may otherwise be harmed from night grinding. Grinding your teeth in your sleep can lead to temporomandibular joint disorder, and a host of other concerns.
