What Really Makes Invisalign® Clear Braces Different?

At our Ft. Worth, TX, orthodontic office, our goal is to provide the optimal solution for every patient who requires orthodontic correction. That includes taking into account every patient’s unique needs and personal preferences when designing the appropriate treatment plan. Many times, that includes a patient’s desire to keep their treatment as discreet as possible, and to have a minimal impact on their daily lives. Invisalign® clear aligners are one solution we may recommend to achieve optimal teeth-straightening results while also optimizing the comfort, convenience, and discretion of your treatment.

You can smile without them being noticed

For patients who are concerned about maintaining a discreet appearance throughout the course of their treatment, the nearly invisible nature of Invisalign’s aligners is often their most attractive feature. The aligners are crafted from clear, BPA-free acrylic, and are designed according to highly precise digital measurements of your teeth, jaws, and oral structures. When placed over your teeth, they remain virtually undetectable when you speak and smile, even when interacting with people up close. The enhanced discretion means patients can be more confident in the process of straightening their smiles, and more patients are willing to undergo orthodontic treatment knowing their aligners won’t be noticed.

You can enjoy a wider variety of foods

While appearance can sometimes be a significant factor in choosing orthodontic treatment, many patients are more concerned about how their braces may affect their daily lives. For instance, wearing traditional braces means being careful in the foods you eat to avoid a range of issues, such as damage to your brackets and wires. With Invisalign® treatment, however, you can temporarily remove your aligners before each meal to eliminate such concerns. As long as your refrain from unhealthy eating habits, such as indulging in too much sugar or failing to clean your teeth every day, you shouldn’t need to adjust your diet to accommodate your Invisalign® treatment.

You can practice good hygiene easier

In addition to eating a broader range of different foods, the convenience of removing your aligners temporarily also means you can practice good hygiene easier every day. Cleaning your teeth every day is a cornerstone of a healthy smile, and by temporarily removing your aligners beforehand, you can brush and floss as effectively as normal. You won’t need additional hygiene products, such as an interdental cleaner, to clean around your braces, and you’ll have a greater chance of avoiding things like chronic bad breath, tooth decay, gum disease, and more.
