If your teeth aren’t aligned properly, then your dentist may have suggested Invisalign® clear aligners to correct them. Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners are made specifically to blend in with your smile, making them highly discreet so you can remain confident throughout your treatment. While their discreet appearance is a significant benefit to Invisalign® aligners, the way they simplify your orthodontic treatment can give you an even bigger advantage in improving your smile and oral health.
Improving how your bite works
The main goal of orthodontic treatment is to realign crooked teeth so that your bite can function the way it was meant to. Proper tooth alignment is vital to ensuring that your jaw can open and close properly, allowing your two jaw joints (or TMJs) to move smoothly and simultaneously. Therefore, the most important benefit of Invisalign® is their effectiveness at improving how well your bite works.
Blending in with your smile
While improved bite function is important, so is your confidence in your smile, which is why many adult patients are first prompted to straighten their crooked teeth. To help you maintain that confidence, Invisalign® aligners are made from virtually invisible acrylic that conforms precisely to the shape of your teeth and oral structures, allowing them to blend in discreetly with your smile.
Making good hygiene easy
Keeping up with good hygiene is always important, but it’s even more so when you have to wear braces or aligners continuously for orthodontic treatment. Compared to traditional braces, Invisalign® makes good hygiene easier to maintain; the aligners can be temporarily removed before you brush and floss your teeth.
