When you are considering your options with regard to orthodontic corrective treatment, it’s best to look at all the benefits and drawbacks of each option. Everyone knows that Invisalign aligner trays are clear and thus can be worn without dealing with the appearance of traditional braces. However, many people don’t realize just how convenient Invisalign is. If you are thinking of getting Invisalign, here are some benefits you may not have considered.
The Invisalign system uses aligner trays that are removable. This means you can take them out before enjoying a certain food or drink that you would not otherwise be able to have—as is the case with soft drinks and traditional braces.
What’s more, because they may be removed, you can take out your Invisalign aligner before occasions such as photo shoots, dates, or for any other reason. In a word, the Invisalign system is convenient.
Traditional braces can be quite uncomfortable or even downright painful. The system of brackets and wires can rub on the soft tissues in the mouth, causing sore spots or even lacerations.
In contrast, Invisalign trays are designed with comfort in mind. They are smooth, meaning there are no rough or sharp edges to cause discomfort. What’s more, because they can be removed, if you need a break from the straightening process, you can just pop the aligner tray out until you’re ready to put it back in.
