10 Reasons Invisalign Will Make You Smile

10 Reasons Invisalign Will Make You Smile

by Yenny (SU)

Designed to fit your life, rather than interrupt it, Invisalign shook up the dental industry when it first burst onto the scene in 1997. A novel idea, its tray system presented a multitude of benefits for those unsatisfied with their smiles. Since then, over 5 million people have chosen to forego braces and choose the tray.

You’re looking for a clean slate; straight teeth would mean a fresh start for you. Unfortunately, traditional modes of straightening – such as braces and retainers – can prevent wearers from properly cleaning their teeth and practicing proper hygiene. The result is often Periodontal woes, whether it be gingivitis, hyperplasia, bone loss, and in severe cases, tooth loss. Invisalign, on the other hand, allows you to brush and floss as you would normally.

Braces present cosmetic challenges for those looking to straighten their teeth later in life, or during times where aesthetics is particularly important. Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible; so, whether it’s a wedding day, college reunion, or that big meeting at work – you can smile knowing you’re straightening that smile on the sly.

Every day, we are bombarded with commercials advertising toothpastes, floss, and straightening tools that promise a perfect pout. Many companies have tried to rival Invisalign, but the original clear liners remain the #1 dentist recommended liner treatment.

Stick with the original. Many brands, such as SmileDirectClub and Candid Clear Liners have attempted to mimic Invisalign’s groundbreaking technology. But, only Invisalign is made from SmartTrak® material – which is designed to offer predictable, fluid tooth movement for more natural feel.

If you’ve ever had braces, or know someone else who has, you may be aware of the discomfort associated with bars and wires in your mouth. Wax, Orajel, and pain relievers can only do so much to alleviate the aching. What if there was an alternative? With Invisalign, the days of emergencies, canker sores, and sharp wires are over.

A breath of fresh air – literally and figuratively, Invisalign eliminates the sour breath associated with braces. Your aligners can be removed completely for thorough brushing.

When it comes to perfecting your smile, time is of the essence. In today’s busy world, trips to the orthodontist can be time consuming and put a damper on your day. Invisalign requires fewer dental visits than regular braces. According to research collected at the American Association for Dental Research 2012 Annual Meeting, Invisalign also requires a shorter overall duration of treatment.

For those suffering from TMJ or TMD – uncomfortable conditions that involve pain or stiffness in the jaw, Invisalign can kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. If worn for the required 20 hours a day, these clever liners have been proven to relieve pain by supporting the teeth as a “splint”.

Modern-day electric toothbrushes have timers to ensure we’re brushing enough. Traditional brushes have colored tips to show when it’s time to toss them. If you’re forgetful about adhering to routines, or just need a helpful reminder, Invisalign has you covered. Built-in blue compliance indicators determine whether you are wearing your trays for the recommended 20-22 hours per day.

Remember that your smile is one-of-kind. Just as each person’s thumbprint is unique, our smiles require tailored care and don’t respond as well to “one-size-fits-all” modes of straightening. Trimmed to fit your specific gum line, you’ll notice that each tray is designed for optimal comfort and appearance.
