Important Points About Invisalign® Clear Aligners

Patients who experience malocclusion (tooth misalignment) have more options today for addressing their condition than ever. Invisalign® clear aligners are among the most popular of those options, and for many different reasons. At our Cleveland, TX, dental office, we may suggest straightening your crooked teeth with Invisalign® for several different reasons, including the many ways in which they make your orthodontic treatment more comfortable, discreet, and convenient.

They really are more discreet

Invisalign® aligners are clear, making them significantly more discreet than traditional metal braces. Made from clear, BPA-free acrylic, the aligners are designed to fit snugly and comfortably over your teeth and remain virtually invisible throughout the day, even as you speak and smile to friends and coworkers. For many adult and older teen patients, the noticeable appearance of traditional braces is one of the biggest reasons why they may hesitate to undergo orthodontic treatment. However, with Invisalign®, that isn’t a concern, which can encourage more patients to straighten their crooked teeth as soon as possible and avoid the consequences that may result from untreated malocclusion.

They’re more comfortable, too

Because Invisalign® doesn’t rely on brackets and arch wires, like traditional metal braces, they can also offer significantly greater comfort throughout the course of your treatment in several ways. For example, there are no metal parts to jut out uncomfortably against your cheeks, lips, or other oral tissues. Also, you don’t have to have them tightened routinely; to progress through your treatment, you’ll simply change your current aligners for the next ones in the series. Each aligner is designed to pick up where the last one left off until crooked teeth are finally shifted into straighter, healthier positions.

They make teeth healthier by straightening them

Improved comfort, convenience, and discretion are important benefits to Invisalign® clear aligners, but the most important advantage they offer is that they can effectively correct the alignment of your teeth. When this alignment is off, it can affect several different aspects of your bite function and more. By effectively straightening crooked teeth, clear aligners also significantly improve your immediate and long-term oral health.
