The Difference Between Invisalign® and Traditional Braces
When your teeth are obviously not aligned properly, the cosmetic effect it can have on your smile’s appearance can be a significant one. The trouble for many patients, though, is that metal orthodontic braces don’t always seem like a more attractive option. If appearance is the main concern, then patients may be more likely to neglect correcting the problem. Invisalign® clear aligners eliminate that concern by remaining discreet and unnoticeable when placed over your teeth. Therefore, one of the biggest ways patients in North Hollywood, CA, benefit from Invisalign® is by gaining the confidence to straighten their crooked teeth so they can enjoy better oral health for life.
More confidence throughout your treatment
Invisalign® clear aligners don’t consist of noticeable brackets and wires like traditional braces. Instead, they consist of a custom-designed, virtually invisible aligners that slip comfortably over your teeth, gradually guiding them toward more symmetrical positions. The aligners are designed specifically to remain undetectable so you can enjoy a greater level of confidence throughout the course of your treatment.
No major changes to your diet
Besides looking better, Invisalign® aligners are also temporarily removable. Because they slip over your teeth, they aren’t semi-permanently bonded in place like brackets and wires. This means you can take your aligners off before you eat so you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods without worrying about anything sticking in your braces.
No special considerations for good hygiene
You can also remove your aligners before brushing and flossing your teeth so your toothbrush and floss aren’t impeded by them. This means you can clean your teeth and gums more effectively without needing additional tools such as an interdental cleaner to brush and clean around your braces. Because your hygiene routine is simpler and more successful, you can also enjoy a reduced risk of issues such as tooth decay and gum disease.
