Invisalign has become a prevalent method for teeth straightening over the last several years, and for a good reason. Invisalign and other clear aligner alternatives offer many benefits to patients that they wouldn’t receive with traditional braces, and those benefits often provide patients with convenience and ease of use.
Why Do Patients Find Invisalign Convenient?
Between work, school and hobbies, many of us juggle full days. We have families and pets to care for, chores to complete and other obligations that keep us running throughout the day. So when it comes to pursuing orthodontic treatment, many patients won’t bother unless the treatment offers the convenience necessary to fit into their busy schedule.
Invisalign makes orthodontic treatment more convenient by:
Allowing for Easy Removability
Since patients can remove their clear aligners to eat, drink and perform their oral hygiene routine, there’s no need to change their diet during treatment. Removability also makes maintaining your teeth and the aligners much simpler.
Requiring Fewer Dental Appointments
With traditional braces, patients must visit the dentist or orthodontist regularly for minor adjustments, which are necessary to keep the teeth moving properly as the treatment progresses. However, the Invisalign system allows patients to change their aligners for the next set at home, which is the Invisalign version of an orthodontic adjustment. This means Invisalign patients need fewer dental appointments to achieve straighter teeth, saving the patient time spent in the dental clinic.
Keeping the Treatment Discreet
Many patients don’t want to change the appearance of their teeth for months or even years while they undergo orthodontic treatment. Fortunately, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, so there’s no need to worry about the appearance of braces. You may even have friends or family members who completed Invisalign treatment without your knowledge.
