Why Choose Invisalign for Orthodontic Treatment?

At Columbia Family Dentist, we often hear about the troubles that patients go through while wearing braces. Yes, braces play a crucial role in straightening a patient’s teeth and giving a patient a healthier smile, but sometimes the process can be a little too inconvenient. That’s where Invisalign comes in – an orthodontic treatment that is a better choice for those who don’t want to wear braces. As your trusted providers of Invisalign treatment in Columbia, MD, we’d like to share a few reasons why you might want to choose these clear aligners over the metal wires and brackets of braces.

It's Practically Invisible

The number one reason why you should consider choosing Invisalign treatment is because the aligners that they use are practically invisible – hence the name, Invisalign! There’s no need to be nervous about what you’ll look like while undergoing orthodontic treatment because others won’t even notice the aligners when you’re wearing them. No matter how old you are, Invisalign can make sure that you maintain an attractive and professional appearance.

It’s Much More Comfortable

For most people, the thought of having a mouth full of metal doesn’t exactly sound like the most fun or comfortable thing. While truthfully, it’s not as bad as it sounds, there will still be moments where the metal can irritate a patient’s mouth. With Invisalign though, there’s no worry about that since it’s made of smooth polyurethane plastic. Your teeth, gums, and mouth will thank you for choosing Invisalign!

It’s Removable!

When you’re wearing braces, you’ll have them firmly attached to your teeth for the entirety of the orthodontic process. This can pose a problem as the braces make it harder to clean your teeth and you’ll also have to watch what you eat as certain foods can damage the brackets and wires. Invisalign remedies all of this since the aligners are removable. Because you’ll remove your aligners before brushing, cleaning your teeth is as simple as ever and you won’t have to worry about getting your toothbrush and floss around wires and brackets where food often likes to accumulate. Also, you won’t have to give up any of your favorite foods since you won’t be eating with your aligners in.

It’s Convenient!

We understand that a person’s life can be hectic, which is why we recommend choosing Invisalign over traditional braces as you’ll be able to save some extra time in your busy schedule. While you’ll still have to occasionally come in so that we can make sure that your orthodontic treatment is progressing as planned, you won’t need to do so as often.
