3 Big Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign clear braces at our Metairie dental office are an effective short-term orthodontic treatment that has helped thousands of people smile again with confidence. Clear aligner trays are an excellent solution that eliminates the need to wear bulky metal brackets and wires to achieve the smile you want.

There are lots of benefits to treating misalignments with Invisalign instead of metal braces. But here are three benefits that our patients really appreciate:

  1. No Uncomfortable Metal – of the chief complaints with metal orthodontics is discomfort. Invisalign eliminates this problem because the aligners are made of smooth plastic that won’t irritate delicate tissue in the mouth. Also, Invisalign aligners are made to conform perfectly to the contours of your teeth, so you may even forget you’re wearing them!
  2. Removable Trays – With metal braces, brackets are affixed to your teeth for the duration of treatment. On the other hand, you can easily remove Invisalign clear aligners for eating and brushing and flossing. Have a big event coming up? No problem! You can take your aligners out; just be sure to wear them at least 22 hours per day for the fastest results.
  3. Improved Oral Hygiene – Proper oral hygiene has always been a problem with metal braces. It’s not easy to clean thoroughly between brackets and wires, so getting your teeth clean can be a problem. However, since Invisalign trays are removable, you will be able to brush and floss with ease.
