One of the biggest advantages to choosing this unique type of clear braces rather than traditional metal braces is that they are virtually undetectable when being worn. When one of our patients wears these braces, other people see their warm smile rather than an unattractive mouthful of metal.
Another key benefit to choosing Invisalign braces rather than traditional braces is that they are designed using a very smooth and comfortable plastic material which is much less likely to irritate the inside of the mouth as well as the cheeks and the gums than traditional metal braces.
And because they feel more comfortable, our patients feel more enthusiastic about wearing them throughout the treatment process. While brace wires made of metal can cause mouth sores, discomfort and downright pain while being worn, smooth, clear braces simply feel much more natural when positioned correctly in the mouth. Whether we need to treat you for teeth crowding, uneven spacing, underbites, crossbites or overbites, clear braces get the job done of correctly and gently straightening your teeth without causing you pain or discomfort.
Increased Food Choices
Most patients tell us that it’s a hardship to give up many favorite foods while wearing traditional braces. But with clear braces, you can continue to enjoy all of the same foods as before. And unlike traditional braces which must be permanently fixed in place during the treatment process, clear braces can be removed from the mouth whenever necessary.
You can even continue to floss and brush your teeth as you normally would to ensure good oral hygiene throughout the treatment process. This prevents tooth decay and plaque build-up from occurring while wearing braces, so that once the braces have been removed and the treatment period is over, your teeth will be healthy and present a beautiful smile.
Why Choose Invisalign
Many patients choose our Nashville orthodontics practice because we offer them the option of choosing these unique clear and comfortable braces which provide them with the following benefits:
- invisibility during the teeth straightening process for less embarrassment
