If you think that braces are your only option for getting perfectly straight teeth, think again. Technological advances offer a better solution to crooked teeth and bad bites: Invisalign in Pembroke Pines. We’ve put together the reasons why you may want to choose Invisalign instead of braces.
Cleaning your teeth can be difficult if you’re wearing braces because food usually gets stuck around the bands and brackets. Unless you’re diligent with your oral hygiene habits, your risk of plaque formation is considerably higher with braces.
Alternatively, you won’t have any issues with brushing and flossing if you straighten your teeth with Invisalign. What’s more, these clear aligners are extremely easy to pop out and clean.
Eating sticky, hard, or chewy foods can damage traditional metal braces’ rubber bands, wires, and brackets. When you’re wearing braces, you’ll have to say goodbye to popcorn, gum, corn chips, hard taco shells, pretzels, hard cookies, nuts, and sticky or hard candy.
Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you won’t have to deal with food restrictions. Just take them off of your teeth and you’re free to eat whatever you want.
Braces come with sharp edges that can irritate your gums or the insides of your cheeks. Since Invisalign retainers are made of special plastic and fitted to your mouth, they’re more comfortable to wear.
You shouldn’t wear traditional braces if you don’t want people to know that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. Unlike braces, Invisalign retainers are virtually invisible. You won’t have to go through that awkward phase when people comment on your new braces.
Braces can potentially cause slight discoloration of the teeth in the areas where the brackets were placed. This usually happens if the patient consumes highly pigmented or sugary foods. Since Invisalign aligners aren’t mounted to your teeth, your chances of experiencing dental discoloration are considerably lower.
