Orthodontic treatment is a common procedure. But, orthodontists provide different types of braces that vary in visibility and cost. Clear aligners are a popular option because they provide effective results without being visible.
When clear aligner therapy is used, your orthodontics will be virtually invisible. This benefit is one of the main reasons that many patients choose this treatment over traditional metal or ceramic braces. You won’t have to worry about people’s reactions to the orthodontic appliances that you have in your mouth, and you won’t have to deal with embarrassing looks from strangers as they notice the brackets or wires on your teeth.
Another benefit of choosing clear aligners is that you can remove them to eat and clean them. This means that you won’t struggle with any dietary restrictions when you decide to get clear aligners. In fact, you can eat whatever you want as long as you remove the aligners beforehand. You can even take them out before you brush and floss so that you can easily clean the space around your teeth and gums to prevent tooth decay.
More convenient and comfortable
Several patients prefer clear aligners because they are easier to clean than traditional braces. While you need to brush and floss your teeth with both types of orthodontic treatment, cleaning the teeth around brackets attached to metal wires can be more challenging than cleaning the teeth in trays that can be removed before brushing or flossing the teeth.
One benefit of Invisalign clear aligner treatment is that they can be taken out for short periods of time to allow patients to clean their teeth more easily and effectively. As they are removable, they are also more comfortable for patients to wear than traditional braces that are bonded to the teeth. This can make them more appealing to those who are self-conscious about wearing traditional orthodontic appliances.
Easier to clean
When you wear a ceramic or clear aligner, you never have to worry about hiding your smile in embarrassment because of food particles and plaque build-up stuck between your teeth. Unlike metal braces that can be difficult to clean and often trap food and bacteria, your clear aligners allow you to enjoy all of your favorite foods without worrying about damaging your treatment. Simply remove your trays and pop them out of your carrying case for a quick rinse under water! Then place them back in their case until you’re ready to wear them again.
Less time fussing with stubborn wires and metal brackets when you’re wearing clear aligner trays than with metal braces. Just take them out as you need them, brush your teeth before reinserting the trays, and you’re good to go!
