Technology in the dental industry is advancing in so many ways and it is even making parents jealous.
Most of us remember the old days when people were forced to wear those awkward looking metal braces, and there was even a time when people had to wear those bulky headsets. We can all agree on one thing: they definitely were all very unattractive.
We all know that wearing braces is the best way to properly align teeth, but conventional braces are less than attractive, and are uncomfortable and can even be painful to wear.
However, there is a now a new alternative to fix a smile. Meet Invisalign – invisible-like braces that offer superior appearance and they have scores of benefits over metal braces.
If you or your teen is in need of braces, then Invisalign is a smart solution and there are a number of reasons why they are better that conventional braces.
We all know that metal braces are not appealing and they are very noticeable. What’s even worse is that food can even get caught in them without you even knowing it. Invisalign braces are hardly noticeable and they are far more attractive than metal braces.
Comfort & Convenience
Those who have worn metal braces know the pain of having them on for a long period of time and relying on a dentist to have them professionally removed. The good news with Invisalign braces is that they are removable. If you want to grab a bite to eat or a drink, you just pop them out for brief period of time and no harm is done whatsoever.
Traditional medal braces are filled with wire and bits of metal that can scratch and puncture your gums and mouth. What people like best with Invisalign braces is that they are comfortable and smooth and they do not contain any sharp edges or wires or metal. So Invisalign removes the damage that is typically caused by metal braces that include cavities and gum disease.
Quick and Fast
The real seller with Invisalign braces is that you will only need to wear them for a year or a year-and-a-half and they cost about the same as traditional metal braces, the ones that you have to wear for two to five years (depending on individual cases).
