Invisalign® Clear Braces in El Cajon, CA
The Advantage Of Invisalign Over Metal Braces
Instead of using metal brackets or wires like traditional braces, Invisalign braces are sleek and smooth aligners that gradually straighten teeth over time. Invisalign effectively treats a wide array of dental problems, such as crooked teeth, gapped teeth, crowded teeth, or misaligned bites. The Invisalign clear trays are custom-fitted for each patient and gently shift teeth into place– offering far greater comfort throughout the treatment process in comparison to traditional metal braces. Invisalign wearers also require fewer office visits and experience fewer restrictions overall than those wearing traditional metal braces. They are the definite choice for anyone looking to achieve a beautiful smile!
Invisalign Offers A Number Of Advantages Over Traditional Metal Braces, Including:
Greater Comfort –
The brackets and metal wires used with traditional braces are far more likely to cause pain, discomfort, or irritation to one’s cheeks and gums. However, Invisalign’s customized smooth plastic trays offer far greater comfort when compared to the alternative.
Less Risk Of Dental Emergencies —
Fractured brackets and wires are a leading cause of emergency visits by those who wear traditional braces. With Invisalign braces, the risk of injury caused by these metal brackets and wires in the mouth is eliminated.
Promotes Better Overall Dental Health –
Some common problems that may ensue from wearing traditional braces include injuries to the mouth, tooth decay, plaque buildup, tooth discoloration, and of course breakage of the brackets themselves. Invisalign aligners are easily removed, allowing you to thoroughly clean and care for teeth. Also, they do not pose any threat to your teeth or mouth in the event of an accident.
Fewer Visits To The Dentist –
People who wear traditional metal braces are required to visit their dentist for adjustments every six weeks. By contrast, Invisalign-wearers are only required to visit their dentist every 10 weeks. This amounts to many fewer missed hours of work and school!
Enhanced Appearance –
The clear plastic material of Invisalign trays are almost invisible, making them a much more aesthetically-pleasing and natural-looking alternative to a mouth full of metal.
No Food Restrictions –
Certain foods such as nuts, popcorn, certain candies, and corn on the cob can be difficult to eat or even cause damage to traditional braces and teeth. On the other hand, with Invisalign you can enjoy all your favorite foods without the fear of damaging your teeth or aligners.
