Much Easier to Clean – Whereas braces are a semi-permanent structure in your mouth (a dentist must assist in applying and removing them), Invisalign adheres to no such restraints. You can remove Invisalign freely at any time, meaning you can clean them much easier than braces, which are notorious for catching food. Simply pop the clear Invisalign brace out and clean thoroughly. Once clean, simply pop it back in.
No Metal Involved – A major difference between Invisalign and traditional braces is that one is made of metal, and that metal sits in your mouth for years. Having metal in your mouth can cause excessive pain through cuts and wear on the gums and cheek. It is common for these soars to become infected which can cause much more discomfort and may require dental attention. Invisalign is made of a plastic resin, meaning it's far more comfortable, and safer, to wear and has no possibility of creating cuts or soars in the mouth.
Less Embarrassing – While you know braces will work, you also know how detrimental they can be to someone's confidence or smile. To some, especially adults; braces are embarrassing, painful, and while worth it, a hassle during treatment. Invisalign negates those issues. Since they are clear, many people will not notice them. Since they are made of a plastic material, they are less painful to wear. Lastly, as noted, they are easier to clean because they are removable.
They Can Also Be Less Expensive – Invisalign is typically worn for about a year, whereas braces may have to be worn for many, many years. This means fewer trips to the dentist, less money for adjustments, and can lead to less expenses overall when dealing with Invisalign.
