5 Reasons Invisalign Remains So Popular

Having improved the smiles of more than 6 million patients — including 1.4 million teens — you may wonder why more and more people are choosing Invisalign® over traditional braces to fix their smile flaws.

With the Invisalign system, you are given a number of sets of nearly invisible plastic aligners. Each set is slightly adjusted. Every two weeks or so, you put in a new set, and by the time you finish with your last set of aligners, you have the smile of your dreams.

In this blog, Henry Suarez, DDS at Healthy Dental Expressions gives five reasons why Invisalign is so popular.

1. The aligners can fix almost any smile concern

One of the reasons why Invisalign has become such a popular orthodontic choice is because it can fix almost any smile concern. The advanced and innovative technology offered by Invisalign makes it possible for Invisalign to fix many smile issues, from simple to complex. Invisalign can treat:

2. The aligners are nearly invisible

When it comes to cosmetic fixes, many people prefer discretion, which happens to be another asset of the Invisalign system. The aligners are nearly invisible, and they’re custom-designed to hug your teeth, so most people won’t even know you’re wearing them.

3. The aligners are comfortable

In addition to being almost completely unnoticeable, many people choose Invisalign because they’re a lot more comfortable than braces. The metal brackets used with traditional braces can irritate your gums. And if one of the metal wires breaks, it can cut or irritate your gums.

You don’t need to worry about this with Invisalign aligners. Invisalign aligners are made from high-grade plastic, and they’re custom-made to hug your teeth. 

4. The treatment is fast

With traditional braces, it can take up to three years to get your perfect smile. That’s a long time to have a mouthful of metal. Invisalign can fix your smile flaws a lot faster. While everyone’s treatment plan is unique to them, you can get a perfect smile in 1-1.5 years with Invisalign. That’s half the time it may take with traditional braces.

5. The aligners are removable

Being able to remove your Invisalign aligners offers many advantages. For one, you don’t have to avoid eating certain foods like you need to with traditional braces. You can also remove your aligners for special occasions. 

Furthermore, being able to remove your aligners makes it easier to keep your teeth clean. With braces, food particles can get caught in the brackets and between the wires, and you need to be extra diligent when brushing your teeth. You may also need to invest in a special toothbrush or floss to be able to keep your teeth and gums healthy. This isn’t an issue with Invisalign. Because you can remove your aligners, you can continue to brush and floss like normal.

Improving the look of your smile doesn’t need to be painful or require years of your life. To schedule a consultation, book an appointment online or over the phone with Healthy Dental Expressions.
