What Are the Benefits of Invisalign in Carmel?

Indy Dental Group logo PCWhen you have an important decision ahead, making a pro and con list is a classic way to decide — and if you’re weighing your options between Invisalign in Carmel and traditional braces, make sure you include all of the benefits of clear braces! We’ve got 8 you are sure to enjoy below.

#1: Invisalign is Subtle

Perhaps the most exciting thing about Invisalign is the fact that it is practically invisible. While those close to you may already know that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment, your acquaintances and co-workers may be none-the-wiser. That’s what makes Invisalign a popular choice with both professional adults and image-conscious teens.

#2: Removability Makes Life Easier

People who wear traditional braces envy the fact that Invisalign is removable for maximum convenience. As long as you wear the aligners for the recommended 20 to 22 hours daily, you can feel free to take them out as needed throughout the course of the day. Just make sure to reinsert Invisalign as soon as possible to avoid any delays in treatment!

#3: Your Smile Stays Healthy

Because Invisalign is removable, you can continue to brush and floss your teeth without any tricky maneuvering around metal brackets and wires. It can be very tricky to clean around fixed braces — so much so that many patients forgo flossing altogether. But that can put your smile at risk of decay and gum disease! Not so with removable braces.

#4: A Comfortable Option

For most patients, Invisalign’s smooth, clear plastic aligners are far more comfortable than the fixed metal brackets that can cause oral sores and blisters.

#5: Fewer Visits to the Dentist

Invisalign is also more convenient because it requires fewer visits to the dentist throughout the treatment. Simply use Invisalign as directed, advancing to the next tray after one to two weeks (depending on our recommendation) and come see us every six weeks to make sure everything is progressing like it should.

#6: Eat What You Like

Because you take Invisalign out before you eat and drink, you do not have to exclude crunchy, hard, or chewy items from your diet. There’s no worry that you’ll pop off a bracket or wire, so you can feel free to continue eating all your favorite items throughout the Invisalign treatment.

#7: Speak Confidently

Important meetings or introductions are far easier when you use Invisalign compared to traditional braces — simply slip the aligners out, store them safely in the Invisalign case, and speak without any worry that people are focusing on your braces rather than what you’re saying.

#8: Fresher Breath

Because you can brush and floss easily with Invisalign, your mouth stays healthy and clean — and that means your breath stays fresh, too. There’s no worry you have a little bit of lunch leftover in your braces with Invisalign.

Now that you know the numerous benefits of Invisalign, we would like to invite you to learn more about clear braces in Carmel and whether or not they are right for your smile! If they are, we look forward to getting started right away.
