Benefits of Clear Aligners over Traditional Braces
As an adult, it’s understandable that you would want to straighten your crooked teeth. Maybe your family couldn’t budget for orthodontics when you were younger. Or perhaps you had treatment but didn’t wear your retainer, and your teeth have relapsed into misalignment.
Invisalign Clear Aligners Can Help
In either case, Invisalign is an excellent orthodontic option for adults who want a straighter, healthier smile without committing to treatment with traditional braces. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits Invisalign treatment in Alpharetta offers.
- Appearance – Don’t want a mouthful of metal that announces you’re an adult in braces? Invisalign aligners are crystal clear and fit snugly over your teeth so you keep your treatment to yourself.
- Comfort – Forget metal or ceramic brackets and wires that irritate sensitive tissue in your mouth. Invisalign treatment uses smooth acrylic aligners that are so comfortable you might forget you’re wearing them.
- Convenience – It’s notoriously difficult to clean around brackets and wires, and a buildup of plaque and bacteria over time will lead to tooth decay. Invisalign aligners are removable so you can do a proper job of brushing and flossing to protect your oral health. Another benefit is that you can continue to eat all your favorite foods – Just remember to brush your teeth before putting your aligners back in your mouth.
- Shorter treatment times – On average, treatment with traditional braces takes about 24 to 30 months for adults. Because of the way Invisalign moves teeth, many adults can complete treatment in as little as 12 months.
