Four Reasons to Consider Clear Braces

Four Reasons to Consider Clear Braces

Our dentist in Sherman Oaks offers comprehensive Invisalign treatments for adults and teens alike. But other than the aesthetic appearance of these “invisible” orthodontics, why should you consider getting clear braces at all?

  1. It’s Easier to Care for Your Teeth

When you wear standard metal braces, you need all sorts of special tools and oral hygiene aids to keep your teeth clean. Otherwise you can wind up with those bothersome white circles on your teeth. With Invisalign, all you do is remove your aligners, then brush and floss as normal! Rinse your trays out with tap water and a soft toothbrush, and you’re good to go.

  1. There Aren’t Any Dietary Restrictions

Eat what you want. Drink what you want. Invisalign trays are removed during meals so that you don’t have to change your normal diet (completely opposite of wearing conventional braces.) Just be sure not to misplace them during your meal and put them right back in afterward.

  1. Invisalign is More Comfortable to Wear

Obviously, these clear aligners don’t use any poky wires or brackets that can irritate your cheeks and lips. Each one of the plastic aligners is customized to conform to your mouth without taking up extra space.

  1. You Don’t Need Long Trips to Your Dentist’s Office

Since Invisalign trays are delivered in a few sets at a time, you only have to stop by to see your dentist every 6 to 8 weeks. They don’t need to be adjusted, so the check-in visits are shorter than if you wore regular braces.
