Looking for a better way to get your teeth straight and beautiful than those old-fashioned metal brackets everyone was wearing not too many years ago? Invisalign invisible braces are a dramatically improved way of straightening your teeth with clear aligner trays made just for you and your teeth. At Brighton Dental in San Diego, we’re Invisalign experts.
And what’s especially great about Invisalign – besides the look and comfort – is that the final positioning of your teeth is charted out and planned from the beginning, so there are no unpleasant surprises related to the results. The progressive trays are made all at once, and the one for each week is planned out. Each smooth tray goes over your teeth to gently but constantly shift your teeth over time into the precise alignment you and Dr. Woods decide on.
How Is Invisalign Better Than Metal Braces?
First and most importantly, Invisalign is better than metal braces because there are no brackets or wires. That means there’s nothing to tighten, cut into your cheek or cause you pain. For crooked teeth and related conditions including underbite, overbite, malocclusion, gaps and crowding, there’s no better solution.
And Invisalign is much more socially acceptable for adults than metal braces. If you’re a bit older – perhaps a working professional or someone who’s dating – you can be comfortable with Invisalign when you might not be comfortable with traditional braces. Plus, students who choose invisible braces don’t have the stigma that comes with old-fashioned braces, especially now that most of their friends will be turning to Invisalign as well and ditching the brackets.
Let’s face it: Metal braces are unpleasant to look at, cause pain and negatively impact healthy eating. They make kissing difficult as well. So why wouldn’t you choose Invisalign from Dr. Woods at Brighton Dental and take the no-hassle, service-oriented approach to straightening your teeth?
Specific Benefits Of Invisalign Over Metal Braces
Here are a few specific benefits of Invisalign invisible braces compared to metal braces:
Easy to use. Invisalign doesn’t impact your everyday life very much. You wear the aligning trays 20 to 22 hours every day and probably won’t feel any discomfort.
Easy to clean. Aligners are removable, so cleaning is easy – and it’s essential that you clean your aligners and your teeth to maintain your dental health. Instructions are provided.
No issues eating. There aren’t any wires or brackets, so stuck food or a restricted diet aren’t concerns. And you can remove the trays when eating or at any other time you like as long as you don’t leave them out very long.
You can play sports. If you get hit while wearing metal brackets, there will be tissue damage in your mouth. But you can take out your Invisalign tray while using a mouth guard for sports if necessary.
No health concerns. Invisible braces from Invisalign and provided by Brighton Dental are BPA-free, medical grade plastic and an accepted part of holistic and biocompatible dentistry. Plus, aligned teeth are more likely to stay healthy, so this type of tooth alignment procedure actually improves dental health.
