The advantages Invisalign braces present over their traditional counterpart are plentiful, yet a few in particular contribute to Invisalign’s growing popularity. Metal braces are known to cause discomfort in patients. All the while, metal braces restrict these patients from eating a variety of foods. Additionally, braces can require constant care, and damage to the appliances can present a number of issues such as lengthened treatment time. With Invisalign braces, all of these concerns are simply eliminated.
Though traditional braces are extremely effective and can correct nearly any orthodontic issue, many patients prefer Invisalign braces for their many benefits. At Spring Valley Dental Care, we recognize these numerous benefits and proudly offer Invisalign to our patients. Take a moment to learn more about these clear braces and contact Dr. William Boyer to find out if they are right for you.
How Do Invisalign Braces Work?
The treatment process for Invisalign is quite simple. If you are a candidate, you’ll consult with Dr. Boyer during your initial appointment, in which Dr. Boyer will design a treatment plan specifically for you. From here, clear plastic aligners are created with a custom fit to your teeth. These aligners gradually and gently shift your teeth into position. You’ll wear 3 set of aligners, each set of the aligners for two weeks, then visit Spring Valley Dental Care for your next set every 6 weeks.
In just a matter of time, you’ll acquire perfectly-straightened teeth without the potential downfalls of metal braces. Throughout your treatment, you’ll experience more comfort than you would with traditional braces, but the benefits of Invisalign braces go much further than that.
3 Benefits You’ll Surely Love
Like we said, Invisalign braces present numerous advantages over their metal counterpart. However, a select number of these advantages truly make Invisalign worthwhile and the clear choice over traditional braces. Check out the top three benefits below:
Convenience: Brushing, flossing, and eating are all a breeze with Invisalign. You can simply remove your aligners to maintain teeth and enjoy all the foods you couldn’t eat with traditional braces. Also, cleaning teeth around braces can be difficult and result in cavities, but Invisalign eliminates this problem.
Comfort: The aligners used for Invisalign braces are made with smooth plastic and are specially designed to fit your teeth comfortably. In other words, the discomfort associated with metal brackets and wires is nonexistent with Invisalign.
Effectiveness: In most cases, Invisalign treatment is much shorter than that of traditional braces. In some cases, patients can end up wearing metal braces for 2 to 3 years, whereas most Invisalign patients are finished with treatment in one year.
Are Invisalign Braces Right For You?
From increased comfort to ease of treatment, the advantages of Invisalign braces are quite clear. However, Invisalign is unfortunately not fit for every patient. If you’re interested in receiving treatment through Invisalign, consult with Dr. Boyer to find out if they’re right for you.
