Benefits of Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

Benefits of Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

Looking to improve your smile, but not sure the best approach? More often than not, many adults think that it’s too late to straighten their teeth, that the time has passed for braces.  Invisalign may seem too good to be true, but there are many benefits to clear braces you may not have considered. As the latest option for straighter teeth, Invisalign works well with modern day technology so you can expect greater accuracy and a better experience throughout the whole process.

Offering our patients the best in Invisalign in the Northern VA/DC Metro area, we have listened to our clients over the years tell us why they’re glad they chose Invisalign. Here are a few of the most common reasons we’ve heard over and over again why our patients love Invisalign invisible braces!

Eat What and When You Want!

Ask anyone who has had braces and they will tell you how much they missed eating popcorn, gum, nuts, or chewy food. Or, you might hear horror stories of how they ignored the warnings and ate what they wanted anyway only to end up popping a wire and cutting the inside of their cheek.  With traditional braces, brushing after you eat is a chore and can take a long time, requiring special tools to thread floss over each wire. On top of that, food easily gets stuck in the metal wires while you’re eating. If you’re not diligent about brushing thoroughly between meals, it’s possible brown spots will be form but won’t become visible until after the metal braces are removed.

With Invisalign you don't have to worry about avoiding any of the foods you love because the clear aligner is removable. When you want to eat, simply remove the invisible aligner and put it in your case. After you eat, brush your teeth and put the Invisalign aligner back in – done! You can eat and brush the same way you always do. Luckily, with Invisalign you don’t have to risk your teeth yellowing from not being able to reach certain spots because the Invisalign braces are removable.

Comfort is the Best

Who doesn't love being comfortable? Metal brackets in your mouth can cause pain and cuts if pushed or rubbed the wrong way against the sensitive soft tissue in your mouth.  In summary, they feel horrible! If the wire is not cut just right way it can poke in the back of your mouth. Countless cuts and incidents have been reported from metal braces. There is even wax offered to help cover the sharp edges, but it can create bulk and a bad taste in the mouth.

With Invisalign, all those horror stories are whispers of the past. Our Invisalign dentists serving Northern VA/DC use iTero intraoral scanning technology to ensure a snug comfortable fit that will gradually move the teeth to their desired position. Some people claim they forget they are even wearing their Invisalign aligner. The smooth, flexible plastic is FDA-approved and contains no BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten.

The best part about Northern Virginia Invisalign services is that they aren’t noticeable.
