The Major Benefits of Invisalign
One of the major reasons why Invisalign has become so popular with so many people over the years is because of the wide range of different benefits that it brings to the table that you’d be hard-pressed to achieve through other means.
Many love the fact that Invisalign’s clear plastic aligners are far more comfortable than traditional braces. This is because traditional braces require you to have an individual metal bracket affixed to each one of your teeth. Those brackets are then connected together via a series of tight metal wires. The wires are periodically adjusted, thus “pulling” your teeth into their desired position.
With Invisalign, on the other hand, each tray is unique and is created after taking a series of precise measurements of your mouth. This means that not only is it comfortable – they also act as essentially a “second skin” to your teeth!
There are other advantages that Invisalign has over traditional braces, too. People love the fact that they’re a far more discreet treatment option, meaning that they’re less noticeable to the point where most people probably won’t even realize you’re wearing them at all.
Thanks to the fact that they can be effortlessly removed while you’re eating, you have virtually no dietary restrictions to speak of – just make sure that you always brush and floss your teeth before you put the aligners back in.
Finally, Invisalign requires far fewer trips to the orthodontist than traditional braces and what trips you DO have to make will be far shorter, too.
Why Get Invisalign as an Adult?
There’s a common misconception out there that tells us if you’re beyond a certain age, you’re essentially “out of luck” when it comes to correcting your smile or other dental-related issues.
To put it mildly, this is absolutely false: you are never too old to begin treatment, regardless of what anyone tells you.
Treatment like Invisalign can improve a wide range of different aspects of your life – including both your confidence levels and your overall self-esteem. All of this is to say that if you’ve been interested in looking at this type of treatment option in the past and want to finally enjoy that smile you’ve always seen for yourself, there is truly no time like the present.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
The total cost of Invisalign can often vary wildly depending on the exact length of treatment you require. Some issues take longer to correct than others, which will delay treatment and affect the price as a result.
Having said that, the vast majority of all people find that Invisalign costs about the same amount as traditional braces – despite the fact that it also brings with it innovative benefits like those outlined above.
