Adults and teenagers alike seem to cringe at the thought of getting braces because they know how visible, painful, and downright inconvenient they can be in our daily lives. But what many people may not realize is that there is an alternative to traditional wire braces called Invisalign. Invisalign offered by Dr. Brett Bridgeman at Bridgeman Dental in Plano, TX, offers many benefits that conventional wire braces do not, including nearly invisible aligners, increased comfort, easy cleaning, and faster results.
Nearly Invisible Aligners
One of the best things about Invisalign is that they effectively straighten your teeth without visible wires in your mouth. Invisalign uses clear aligners, like a retainer, custom-made for your mouth, and nearly invisible. This offers users increased confidence in continuing their daily activities at work, at home, and in the community without anyone knowing they wear braces—a major win-win for many teens and adults!
Increased Comfort & Ease of Use
Due to the lack of wires and rubber bands used in traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are also more comfortable to wear and easy to use. You can easily remove the aligners for eating, drinking, and playing sports so that you do not have to limit your daily activities just because of braces. Another perk of removing the aligners is that it is much easier to clean both your teeth and the aligners as needed. Compared to traditional wire braces, this leads to better oral hygiene with brushing and flossing using Invisalign.
Everyone knows someone who has been wearing braces for what seems like ages. Traditional wire braces often need to be worn for a few years to achieve results. However, this may not be the case with Invisalign, as the average wear-time is only six months.
