5 Amazing Benefits of Invisalign®

Everyone wants a perfect smile. If your smile is less than amazing, but you don’t want to sacrifice your comfort and lifestyle to fix it, Invisalign® might be right for you. 

At All Bright Dental, located in Mamaroneck, New York, and Stamford, Connecticut, our team of dental experts led by Gennadiy Kravets, DMD, is dedicated to the health of your smile. That includes the Invisalign straightening system. 

The basics of Invisalign

Invisalign technology uses removable plastic aligners to gradually straighten your teeth and correct your bite. We begin by taking a digital impression of your teeth to create the custom aligners, making sure they fit perfectly in your mouth. You wear them for at least 20 hours a day as the gentle pressure guides your teeth into their correct position. 

There’s a reason over 1 million people opt for Invisalign over traditional straightening methods like braces every year. Here are a few of the benefits Invisalign has to offer: 

1. Invisalign can correct several issues

Invisalign is best known for its ability to adjust and correct the gaps and spaces in your teeth, but it can also address teeth crowding issues to straighten your smile. In addition to correcting crookedness, it’s a great treatment for fixing problems like over, under, and crossbite. 

2. You don’t have to sacrifice your confidence

Fixing your smile used to mean months or even years of embarrassing metal in your mouth. That made correcting your smile almost worse than living with crooked teeth. With Invisalign, you don’t have to give up your confidence to invest in a better smile. Invisalign aligners are virtually undetectable, so you can correct your teeth without anyone noticing.

Furthermore, you can remove them for special occasions like interviews, parties, or when taking pictures. This means that Invisalign can fit into your life perfectly without you having to surrender your confidence.  

3. Invisalign is more hygienic

With traditional braces, you have to be even more diligent when brushing your teeth. Often, pieces of food, bacteria, and plaque are left behind on your braces. That’s not the case with Invisalign. 

Caring for your aligners is simple. All you need to do is rinse them with lukewarm water and brush them with a toothbrush and toothpaste to keep them clean. And the best part is that you can continue brushing your teeth just like you always have.

4. You have the freedom to eat what you want

You might have to avoid certain sticky or hard foods if you have braces. With Invisalign, you can eat whatever foods and beverages you want. You just have to make sure to take your aligners out before eating, and to brush your teeth before putting them back in. 

5. You’ll be more comfortable

The metal used in braces often ends up poking your gums and cheeks. Wires can also pop free causing extra trips to the office. When you opt for Invisalign, you’ll never have wires irritating your cheeks. The comfortable plastic aligners are tailor-made to fit your teeth perfectly. You’ll typically only need to make an appointment with us if one of your aligners breaks.

It’s time to invest in a smile you are proud of. We’re committed to offering that to you with Invisalign. If you’re ready to start your Invisalign journey or simply want more information, call our office or schedule an appointment online today.
