Here at Palmyra Family Dental and Cosmetic Dentistry, we want nothing more than to provide our patients with a smile that they’re proud of. Be that through routine care or cosmetic procedures, our team is always here to help you work towards a happier and healthier smile. With that being said, one of the desires that various patients come to us with is a straighter smile. While braces are an option that most people are aware of, Invisalign has become the go-to option for adults. 

In today’s blog post, our team is going to talk about a few of the reasons that adults love Invisalign. Let’s dive in. 

Straight Smile

If your goal is to have a straight smile, you want to find a solution that is going to provide you with those results. For a while, braces were the only option that could yield a straight smile. Now, there are a variety of options that adults can choose from, and Invisalign is easily the most popular. When you pair the straightening results with the rest of the benefits associated with Invisalign, it’s no wonder that Invisalign is such a popular option. 

Less Noticable

One of the primary benefits to choosing invisalign is because they are so much less noticeable than braces. Though there’s absolutely nothing to be ashamed of with braces, most adults would agree that it’s less than desirable to have to pick food out of your braces or take family pictures with bright colored rubber bands on your teeth. If you too would like to avoid dealing with these factors, then Invisalign is the option for you. You can still enjoy a straight smile, and no one will even notice that you have anything on your teeth. 

Removable

Another huge benefit of using Invisalign to straighten your teeth instead of braces is that you can remove them when you eat or drink. This is one of the major complaints that comes with wearing braces is the fact that they always have to be on. With Invisalign, you can have your cake and eat it too! Not only will Invisalign provide you with a beautiful, straight smile, but  they’re also removable. That means that you can take them out when you’re eating, when you’re in the office, or when you’re spending a night out on the town. 

No Food Restrictions

If you’ve looked into braces, you know that there are food restrictions that come with them. You don’t want to eat anything that is too sticky, that will get stuck in between the wires, or that is going to be tough enough to actually break the wires. While it doesn’t seem like that would be a long list of food items that you’re not able to eat, you’d be surprised. Apples, ribs, and gum are just a few of the food items that an orthodontist will ask you to stay away from. If you don’t think that you can go without any given food for an extended period of time, Invisalign is going to be a better fit for you. Since it can be removed at any point in time, you can enjoy all of your favorite foods without worrying about them affecting your results. 

Easier Maintenance

Regular maintenance is something that needs to happen in order to maintain a healthy smile. Whether you choose braces or Invisalign, you need to be brushing and flossing regularly. With that being said, one of the many reasons that people love Invisalign is because the maintenance is just a little bit easier. Braces require you to brush and floss behind the wire and around the brackets, which can take some time, and practice. Though it’s totally possible to adapt to this new style of cleaning your teeth, Invisalign allows you to stick to your regular routine of teeth cleaning, making it much easier to maintain your teeth during the straightening process.
