The Benefits of Invisalign

  • Invisibility
    • The main benefit of Invisalign is that they are completely invisible which means that the people closest to you will not even be able to notice that you are wearing braces.
  • No Food or Sports Restrictions
    • Invisalign is removable, which means that to eat all the foods that you love; simply remove them, enjoy your meal, and put them back in when done eating. The same thing applies to sports or other activities that you may participate in. For example, if you are a baseball player, you may not feel comfortable wearing the Invisalign aligners during the game. If that is the case, simply take them out, and put them back in when done.
  • Easier to Clean
    • Since Invisalign is removable, you simply remove the aligners, clean them thoroughly, along with your teeth, and put the aligners back in. With traditional braces, they are semi-permanently placed on your teeth which means that food can easily get trapped in or behind your braces, making them very difficult to clean.
  • Self Esteem
    • Nothing can be worse than being embarrassed by your smile. Usually, it is the first thing people notice about you when you meet or speak to someone. You will have none of this to worry about with Invisalign as they are completely invisible!
