Think back to your middle school days when your classmates were getting braces for the first time. Everyone’s been through it or at least seen it: someone shows up to school with braces in their mouth and it’s a HUGE deal. Have you ever been afraid to smile because of the metal in your mouth when you were younger? Now imagine yourself getting braces in the present day. You show up to work, and all of a sudden, you’re afraid to smile. These situations happen all too often, but thankfully Invisalign in Wharton, TX is an alternative to traditional braces that’s much more attractive, subtle, and easy to use.
Benefits of Invisalign in Wharton, TX
Pardoning the pun, there are CLEAR advantages to using Invisalign. The most significant benefit is that it is a see-through teeth aligner. As the name might suggest, Invisalign is translucent, making it very hard to notice when in use. When using Invisalign, patients will wear a series of clear aligners that help reposition the smile instead of traditional braces. The appearance is great, and you can straighten your teeth without anybody noticing! Below are some more benefits of Invisalign:
- Easy cleaning
- No issues with eating
- No discomfort with wires and brackets
Below, we will cover more specifics about the positives of Invisalign, as well as compare them to traditional braces.
Invisalign Vs. Metal Braces
There are two significant differences between Invisalign and traditional braces.
First, the appearance. Invisalign as the name might suggest is almost invisible. On the other hand, traditional braces use metal which is much more visible than the clear plastic Invisalign uses.
Second, Invisalign is removable like a mouthpiece, whereas braces are permanent. Invisalign is made of BPA-free clear plastic that looks like a mouthguard, and traditional braces are made up of brackets and wires that can cause complications like cutting the inside of the mouth, problems with chewing, and difficult hygienic maintenance.
Am I Right For Invisalign?
Although Invisalign looks good, it is important to know if it is the right option for you. Only patients with mild to moderate orthodontic issues can typically benefit from Invisalign. Additionally, adults (and sometimes teenagers) are the best candidates for the treatment.
If you play any contact sport or your job requires physical labor, Invisalign is your best option for straightening your teeth. Because of the way traditional braces are made, its easy to get your mouth and skin caught and cut during physical activity in traditional braces. Invisalign’s clear plastic technology, makes physical activity comfortable and easy in comparison to traditional braces.
