When it comes to straightening crooked or misaligned teeth, traditional braces have always been the go-to treatment. After decades of success, traditional braces have proven effective at correcting problems associated with these conditions.
Traditional braces have earned a reputation for being uncomfortable and unattractive, all thanks to the metal wires and brackets they’re made from.
Fortunately, Invisalign provides a new way to straighten teeth that is both comfortable and invisible. We encourage you to read on to learn more about how Invisalign from Dr. Eugene Stanislaus provides treatment superior to that of traditional braces.
A Better Feeling Treatment
When it comes to traditional braces, a lot of patients end up with discomfort due to the fact that the treatment is permanently attached to their teeth. Cemented to your teeth are metal wires, brackets, rubber bands, and even spacers in some cases. Over time, this metal can feel very uncomfortable, and you can even end up cutting your tongue, lips, or cheeks on your treatment.
Invisalign, on the other hand, proves to be more comfortable than treatment with traditional braces. Part of the reason for this is the fact that Invisalign can be removed at any time. Your aligners will also be made from a smooth, clear plastic that is molded to perfectly fit your teeth. This ensures that your treatment will not harm your mouth.
Easier to Maintain
Many patients end up displeased with how difficult it can be to keep dentures clean. It is not uncommon for food to get caught in the brackets and wires, which will be difficult to remove using a toothbrush. In fact, many people need to purchase special tools in order to keep their braces properly cleaned.
With Invisalign, keeping your teeth clean is incredibly easy. When it comes time to clean your teeth, you will merely remove your aligners and then brush and floss like normal. You will also need to brush your aligner clean every night as well, but your whole hygiene routine with Invisalign will be much easier and less time consuming to maintain than traditional braces.
The Freedom to Eat
Whatever You Want
When it comes to traditional braces, you will need to give up certain foods for the duration of your treatment. This includes foods that are hard or sticky, both of which can get caught in your braces or even damage them. Foods that you will be advised to give up include nuts, popcorn, and gum.
Once again, the fact that Invisalign aligners can be removed at any time benefit the patient. When it comes to eating, you will be free to eat whatever you want. You will simply need to remove your aligners before you eat. In fact, you will be required to remove your aligners before every meal. By removing your aligners before eating, you will not need to worry about your food getting caught in or damaging your aligners. Once you have completed your meal, you will brush, floss, and reinsert your aligners before continuing on with your day.
