In the past, braces were the only way to straighten out teeth. With the technology available today, this is no longer the case. At Fairfield Dental Arts, we offer Invisalign®: a “brace-less” alternative to traditional braces. Below are some of the benefits you will reap from Invisalign®.
There is no denying that Invisalign® is more aesthetically pleasing than traditional braces. In fact, people won’t even know you are wearing them! Invisalign® is particularly advantageous for adults who don’t want to have braces.
No Diet Restrictions
Unlike with traditional braces, you don’t need to alter your eating habits to adjust to your new aligners. Invisalign® aligners are completely removable. You should remove them before you eat or drink anything.
Not as Binding
When you have traditional braces, you are stuck with them for years. Invisalign® clear braces can be removed whenever you please. Have a big event coming up? Just take the aligners out! If you leave them in — they are barely noticeable, too!
Traditional braces have metal wires that can poke out and irritate the mouth and gums. Invisalign® does not contain metal and therefore does not have this problem. Clearly, Invisalign® is the more comfortable solution to conventional braces.
Easier Care and Cleaning
One of the biggest challenges that people face with traditional orthodontic braces is that food can become trapped in the brackets and wires. Since Invisalign® aligners are removable, you can brush and floss your teeth with ease. Read more about how to care for your teeth with Invisalign® here
