Advantages of Invisalign Braces

Invisalign® is a popular choice for many teens and adults who want to improve their smiles without anyone noticing their treatment. Many of these patients are reluctant to get traditional braces because they are so visible, involve wires, uncomfortable and require more maintenance. Many adults and teens want a brace treatment that’s compatible with their busy social and professional lives. Invisalign gives them the freedom to achieve a healthy smile without the limitations of traditional braces holding them back.

The appearance, comfort, and convenience of invisalign makes them ideal for teen and adult patients!

Appearance
Invisalign braces are virtually invisible! Traditional braces are extremely noticeable on older patients. Thanks to invisalign, teens and adults can go about their daily lives without anyone seeing their brace treatment. Invisalign allows patients to secretly improve their smiles while they go to class, work, or social gatherings. You’ll be the only person in the room who knows you’re wearing “braces”!

Comfort
Instead of brackets and wires, invisalign is made of smooth plastic. This means patients are free from uncomfortable pinches, cuts, and pokes from stray metal wires. There aren’t any sharp edges on your invisalign, which makes them infinitely more comfortable than traditional braces.

Convenience
Traditional braces can be difficult to clean after eating. You also have to be extremely careful not to break any wires or brackets while eating. However, invisalign treatments are removed every time you eat, which makes cleaning them so much easier! Traditional braces may require more trips to the orthodontist for adjustments and repairs if breakages happen. Depending on your treatment, some patients only need to wear their invisalign for a little over a year.

For more information on the innovations of invisalign, please contact Dr. Gorantla and the friendly staff of Smiles Orthodontics. During your consultation, Dr. Gorantla will discuss treatment options and determine if you are a good candidate for invisalign. We look forward to answering all your questions!
