Crooked or misaligned teeth can make cleaning them difficult, and even more than that, they can hurt your self-confidence. So you’ve decided that you want to straighten your teeth, but now you have two choices: wire braces, or Invisalign? Ultimately, the choice is up to you. You already know the deal with wire braces — they hurt a lot, they are really noticeable, and they have sharp little wires and brackets that are always poking at you. So, what’s the deal with Invisalign?
A Little Information About Invisalign
The difference between Invisalign and traditional braces are mostly clear (no pun intended). Aesthetically, they are complete opposites. One is clunky, metallic, and can even change the way your facial structure appears, while the other goes largely unnoticed.
However, there are quite a few benefits to Invisalign that you might not have thought of before.
Two Huge Benefits of Invisalign
One huge benefit of Invisalign is that your mouth is infinitely easier to clean than with traditional wire braces. People with wire braces have to worry about every little piece of food getting stuck in every little nook and cranny. They are hard to keep clean, and because of that, many people even notice that their breath is smellier with wire braces than without. You don’t have this issue with Invisalign! You can just take them out of your mouth while you eat, brush your teeth like normal, then put them right back in!
You don’t have to give up any foods! While sugary foods are still good to avoid for the general health of your teeth, you don’t have to give up all these different kinds of foods like hard candy, or beef jerky. With Invisalign, you can eat like normal!
