Why Do So Many Patients Choose Invisalign?
1. The aligners are removable.
Who wouldn’t want this option? If you had the chance to remove aligners for important events like a wedding, wouldn’t you take advantage of it? Now you can if you choose Invisalign.
On the other hand, if you have wire braces, you cannot remove the braces. You wear them day in and day out for years at a time, regardless of how many important events occur. Whether you need to attend a wedding, bar mitzvah, senior prom, a black tie event, you don’t have to feel embarrassed of straightening your teeth.
Another awesome reason to remove the aligners is to thoroughly clean them. If you know someone who has wire braces, you probably know that it can be a pain to clean every nook and cranny (within the wires, around the brackets, etc).
With Invisalign, however, you will be able to easily clean the aligners. And we’ll give you suggestions on how to clean them properly, which products to use or not use, and other similar information.
2. You could barely even see the aligners when you smile!
If you are an adult who wants to straighten your teeth, chances are high that you don’t want many people to know. If you had the opportunity to straighten your teeth without anyone else knowing, wouldn’t you take it? Well, Invisalign may be right for you!
When the aligners are in your mouth, no one else will know you are in the process of straightening your teeth. This is a great benefit for adults who are working and do not want to feel embarrassed or ashamed of straightening crooked teeth. You won’t have to feel the need to cover and hide your mouth during an important work meeting or presentation.
It’s a secret that only stays with you!
3. It doesn’t take too long to straighten your crooked teeth.
When choosing wire braces, you’ll most likely have to wait years and years until you can see your straight teeth. Talk about prolonged satisfaction!
If you are a good candidate for Invisalign, you will see great results in a much shorter time period. As a matter of fact, a lot of Invisalign wearers use the aligners for a period of 6 months to 2 years (for more advanced cases).
If you have minor problems (minor teeth crowding, minor spacing issues, etc), you will most likely have to wear the aligners for only a short amount of time. To learn more about the length of time that you’ll need to wear aligners, the consultation with Dr. Jordan is the first step. We can talk to you more about your options.
4. The aligners are easy to take care of and to clean.
Everyone wants a fresh, clean mouth as often as possible. The same goes for keeping the aligners clean. When you wear the aligners for the required 22 hours per day, you want to keep the aligners as clean as possible to reduce bacteria buildup.
Another awesome advantage of Invisalign is that you can remove the aligners for important events and to clean them. Once the aligners are nice and clean, just place them back in your mouth…it’s that easy.
5. No hassles when you try to eat different foods.
You do not have to worry about breaking brackets or wires as you would if you were to choose wire braces. The wires and brackets can become loose, or even break, when you eat certain foods, such as popcorn or harder-to-eat items.
You do not have to worry about this when you wear aligners. You can continue to eat your favorite foods.
6. Fewer follow-up appointments than other orthodontic treatment options.
During the treatment period, Dr. Jordan will want to see you every few weeks (or however often he recommends) to make sure things are running smoothly.
He wants to make sure you are wearing the aligners for the required time period on a daily basis. He also wants to make sure that your teeth are shifting properly and in a timely manner. At these appointments, feel free to ask him any questions you may have.
But don’t worry—these follow-up appointments are typically a fewer amount than what is required with wire braces. That’s always a good thing.
7. The aligners are comfortable to wear.
You most likely will not experience mouth sores or major discomfort while wearing aligners. These are two common complaints made by people who wear wire braces.
When wearing aligners, it will take a couple of weeks or so to get used to the feeling of having something on your teeth throughout the day. You will get used to it soon, though.
If at any point you feel major discomfort, just call us. We can help you; we may have you come in to the office so we can determine what is causing your discomfort.
8. Want to whiten your teeth? You can do that while straightening your teeth!
Many patients who want to straighten their crooked teeth also wish to whiten their stained teeth. This is certainly possible when choosing Invisalign.
Another great benefit of Invisalign is that the aligners serve double duty—-aligners to straighten crooked teeth, as well as to whiten stained teeth. Now that is “killing two birds with one stone,” right?
When it is time to stop Invisalign treatment (and your whitening treatment, too), you will be amazed and so happy with the result—beautiful, white, straight teeth. Talk about a confidence booster!
This is a great benefit for adults who suffer from stained teeth and have tried countless over-the-counter whitening products with no success. To learn more about the whitening options we have available to our patients, call our office or browse our website. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask us.
