There are so many benefits to having straight teeth. Not only does having a beautiful smile give you a big boost in confidence, but having straighter teeth can actually improve your health as well. A straight bite can make your teeth easier to clean, which helps you to avoid tooth decay and gum disease. It can also improve your chewing mechanisms and even resolve discomfort or clicking in your jaw. No matter your reasoning for straightening your smile, you might find Invisalign to be the best option for you.
The Invisalign system is fairly simple: it comes as a series of clear, custom-fit aligners that slowly move your teeth into place over time. Change to your new aligner every couple of weeks, and your teeth will move right into place! There are so many reasons to love Invisalign, but here are just a few of our favorites.
- They’re virtually invisible.
We’d be remiss not to put this at the very top of our list. One of the most obvious benefits to Invisalign is that it’s almost impossible for others to notice that you’re wearing them because they’re made from clear, thin plastic. This makes them a huge hit with teens and adults alike!
- You can eat whatever you want.
Gone are the days where straightening your teeth means avoiding your favorite foods. You can take out your Invisalign aligners whenever you’d like, so you can eat crunchy foods like apples, corn on the cob, carrots, etc. without having to worry about ruining them.
- The treatment is very convenient.
With the Invisalign system, you’ll only need to visit TruBlu dentistry every 4-6 weeks. Your aligners will be delivered directly to you every 2 weeks so that you can continue the program without as many appointments.
- You’ll see results quickly.
Now you can get straighter teeth, faster. If you diligently wear your aligners for 20-22 hours every day, you’ll see results in 50% of the time as other methods. It usually takes only 10-24 months to get the smile you want!
- Invisalign is very comfortable to wear.
Many find that Invisalign is much more comfortable (and even safer) than traditional braces. Because you won’t have metal on the surface of your teeth, there’s no risk of having your lips or cheeks cut on the device.
- It’s easy to keep a clean, healthy mouth.
Here’s another perk to having removable trays: easy cleaning! Now you can brush and floss carefully to prevent tooth decay and other oral health issues.
- Invisalign is cost-effective.
Invisalign is actually covered by many dental insurance policies, so you can get straighter teeth without breaking the bank.
- It can work for almost any patient.
This system is an effective treatment for many issues, including overcrowding, overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, spacing issues, and more. This system can likely work for you!
- It even protects your teeth.
Whether you’re a teeth grinder or tend to be fairly active, having an extra layer to protect your teeth is not a bad idea. This durable plastic retainer can help to keep your teeth safe when they’d otherwise be exposed.
- Patients swear by it!
Over 4 million patients have used Invisalign and loved their results.
